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 Lionheart. As a result, it lacks the same time-necessary experimental nature of The Kick Inside. It's made up of more relaxed Folksy Pop songs that didn't catch hold of me as quickly or as tightly as before. 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 allowed the often safe compositions to blossom further. It's still GREAT, but it could've been even better.
