KATE BUSH / The Dreaming (1982)

The Dreaming album 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.
