KATE BUSH / The Dreaming (1982)

The Dreaming is impossible to pigeonhole, which makes reviewing it a problem. It also makes listening to it an unbridled joy. ♥
Even if you attempt to prepare yourself for musical performance art that incorporates cockney, opera, waltz, pop and much more, you’ll still be ill-equipped to completely assimilate the themes that it explores.
There’s a lot of layered avant-garde weirdness going on beneath the surface if you care to listen for it. Kate called it her "mad" album. I shouldn't have attempted a review, and instead just written: Her. Mad. Album.
