The simplicity and the shout,
This review is from: The Dreaming (Audio CD)
Attractive cover of "The Dreaming" doesn`t emphasize the original and innovative style of this one from another Kate`s albums. But certainly this music is unbeaten and high-class. Never I have heard something better from Kate. Some songs here I like more, some less, but this is truly my favourite; there is not any resembling song with any type of she created. There are songs like hammer-beat intensive "Sat In Your Lap", or seems to be easy-listening "There Goes A Tenner", or hard-to-characterize (may be pop, may be avant-garde at the same time) "Pull Out The Pin" - almost of them full of Kate`s heart-rending shout and strange modulation of her voice. Despite of this most of the songs have clear and distinct melody. I read several reviews and no one reminded my favourite song on the album: "Suspended In Gaffa". Actually I don`t know why this one I admire - at first it sounds like childish counting rhyme and then it seems to be taunting though I don`t exactly understand the definitive meaning of the song. The title track is also haunting in spite of broken exquisite melody of sacrifice ritual. And in final of this brilliant Kate totally loses inhibition: "Houdini" started with accords from album "Never for Ever" and then devolved on crazy, blood-curdling scream. The last "Get Out Of My House" is pop-like rapid friendly song with the squalls almost only animals can make.
