A bizarre album even for today's ears. Unstable, unpredictable but remarkably cohessive and fascinating nonetheless. Probably Bush's most forward-thinking and experimental record, and definitely one of her best.

I will refrain from commenting on Rolf and his didgeridoo as that would only detract from a much overlooked and underrated album.

Experimental and filled great vocal performances, however not all of the attempts succeed.

It took a few listens, but I've finally cracked it. The Dreaming is Bush at perhaps her most expressive and most volatile; it's a hard sell in my books, but you'd be hard pushed to find an experimental album quite as coherent or as majestic as this.

Frankly, words do not do it justice; so much could be written about each song that it's hard to know where to begin or end. All that can really be said is that it demands full attention and has to be experienced.

Breathtaking but also calming, grand yet also detailed, terrifying yet also outstandingly close to the heart. It's an album for all seasons, all feelings and truly spans the musical spectrum. This is Kate Bush, the queen of avant-garde, at a seminal peak.

Undecided about this one. Not terrible, but not exactly appealing throughout.

Frequently startling and hugely inventive melodies. Suspended in Gaffa is such a great pop song. This album is a grower.

Has to be one of the most underrated albums ever made. Should get more praise then it does.

One of Kate Bush's best albums. The dreaming, sees Kate take her music to another level. It's an excellent record, possibly even her best, featuring top tracks such as, there goes a tenner, suspended in gaffa, and the title track. I almost feel like this is the start of the second phase of Bush's career, her mad album indeed.
