KATE BUSH / Director’s Cut (2011)
The result is less appalling and pointless than most of the other re-recordings by other artists that I've heard over the years; that’s not bias talking.
The songs, taken from The Sensual World (1989) and The Red Shoes (1993) are all great songs, and Kate’s lower key gives many of them a significantly different feeling, as does the new arrangements on some, but in most cases the originals are still superior; that may well be bias talking. It’s hard not to compare when you’re as in love with the originals as I am.
