Review Summary: I'll be sitting in your mirror..
Kate Bush is quite the lovable artist. The album is haunting. It is held together with beautiful strings and crisp production. Kate’s voice is courageous and pure. It sounds very good to my ears.. Hounds of love has a distinct dark sound. The tracks are soulfully written. Bush's vocals are unique. Nobody sings like Kate. Hounds of Love is an exception to the bland pop music that people settled for in the 80s. Hounds of Love, is always containing itself with more and more pride, as mixing her styles with many artistic elements, her voice is powerful with any style she portrays, it creates a dreamy atmosphere she develops, in her music. Her past releases, came of on such a strong note, putting that chilling vibe and melodic instrumentation Kate Bush has never released a weak album. Every one of her songs is strong. The Instrumentation and melodies are the kind that talented British pop stars are born to create.
Side A provides the emotional packed singles like Cloudbusting, Running Up That Hill, Hounds of Love and The Big Sky, they follow such a deep concept and matter, the songs are put well together like a storyline. Kate's strong ability is her charisma, her lyricism and depth are fantastically puzzled with an amazing spirit, the meaning of each track, is deep with clear understanding, the peaceful despair and a productive force. Kate Bush's music can impact you on so many levels, positive and negative, it makes you realize how eerie her childhood or if it's just her image, that she can only characterize. The memorable choruses, the way it becomes more like a joyful affection, it will you make sing your heart out with desire and excitement
Side B is more of a different twist in some sorts, the sound becomes more atmospheric and melodic, Starting out with the mellow dramatic And Dream of Sheep, her magical voice, always leads on to more and more opportunities. Hounds of Love, somehow becomes more angrier and driven, with the insane amount of elements put in Side B in such a weird way, that only hardcore fans recognized, it's not that respected, based on it's difference and more unusual sound and development. Kate Bush is brilliant for showing a magnificent amount of variety, whatever her style is, it will get more mysterious and imaginative.
Hounds of Love, is always containing itself with more and more pride, as mixing her styles with many artistic elements, her voice is powerful with any style she portrays, it creates a dreamy atmosphere she develops, in her music.. Kate Bush, really pushes her boundaries but with such dynamic energy and compelling expressions. Kate Bush is a true poet, her music, fame and legacy, is always a treat to see, a hardworking musician, evolves into forceful legend, if the heart is put in the right place, that's what Kate Bush's music does to you. Just drives you in with tons of sensation and passion. Hounds of Love is a complex pop record, however it puts on a journey full of dreams and haunting imagination.
