KATE BUSH / Hounds of Love (1985)
It's made up of two distinct halves. Side A is 'Hounds of Love,' a collection of songs more suited to singles. Side B is the conceptual suite 'The Ninth Wave,' one long piece split into 7 parts designed to be listened to in one sitting. It’s a lot more experimental and darker in tone. It’s Kate's masterpiece. I won’t tell you what it’s about; part of the joy is in connecting the dots yourself.
Make sure and get the EMI reissue. The bonus tracks are superb.
Songs of Note: Cloudbusting; All of Side B
