The are songs enough here to count it as a classic in my record collection. Strangely enough a lot of boring stuff starting the album off. At the end it's exploading in beauty. Love it

A bloated but fascinating album from Kate Bush. Yes, a single album version probably would have tightened up the record a bit, but you can't argue with the quality of most of it. Bush is still as enigmatic and inventive as ever and although it's far from her best work it's still an intriguing listen.

Esto es como la continuación natural de Hounds Of Love, 20 años después, quitando de ese intervalo The Sensual World y The Red Shoes, sonaría como algo lógico, pero ahora de manera menos oscura y más luminosa, pues se centra en la etapa en la que Kate Bush fue madre y se dedico a la crianza de su hijo Bertie. El primer disco es una colección de grandes canciones individuales, me encanta The King Of The Mountain, me parece una de sus grandes canciones, todo en ella es perfecto, incluso logra esa sensación ventosa de estar en la cima de las montañas, con unas extrañas referencias a Elvis Presley y The Citizen Kane y algunas guitarras que le dan un toque más rock. Bertie suena barroca con esos arreglos de instrumentación clásica, es de las canciones más lindas que he escuchado en mi vida. Mrs. Batolozzi es La Kate Bush clásica con su voz y piano y una extravagante letra acerca de unos pantalones y una falda revoloteando en una lavadora como metáfora sexual, podría sonar ridículo en el papel, pero en la voz e interpretación de Kate cobra el más profundo sentido. El segundo disco es para mí, como una versión de Pink Floyd en su etapa The Wall, pero como una oda a la alegría de vivir y disfrutar de los pequeños placeres de la vida, con toques de progresivo, jazz, flamenco y unos arreglos instrumentales que le dan el toque de belleza necesaria. Puedo asegurar sin temor a equivocarme que este es uno de los mejores discos de los años 00's, muchas personas deberían escuchar esto.

My favourite Kate Bush album after Hounds of Love and The Dreaming. Having not released an album in over 12 years, this is a beautiful set of songs. In the top 3 for 2005.

One of my favourite albums of all time, particularly the bird chorus composition which forms the 2nd cd disk. Kate always offers up something special to listen to.

Can't enjoy this as much as her previous works. And I seldom heard high notes from her now on this record, perhaps due to her aging. But her vocal line still sounds sweet, only less sexy though. It's still a very edgy work when compared to other messes on the current market. Fav track: Nocturn.
