KATE BUSH / Lionheart (1978)

Pressured into releasing a second album in the same year as her début, Kate had only a few months to work on this release.  As a result it lacks the experimental nature of the previous one.  It’s made up of more relaxed folksy pop songs that don’t catch hold of you as quickly, or as tightly.  There are still moments where her voice soars, and her piano soothes, but it's hard to shake the feeling that more time would've given her the chance to put more of a spin on the often very safe compositions.  It's still great but it could've been even better.
