KATE BUSH / The Red Shoes (1993)

This album seems to divide fans more than any of Kate’s other more experimental releases.  I find that odd because, while it’s certainly a multi-layered work, it’s not an overly complex album.  It’s layered in a very safe and organised way.  The maturity in her arrangements, coupled with the confidence and belief in her own ability give it the edge needed to overcome the ‘pop album’ tag.  For me, it’s another strong release from a very unique talent.
Kate made a short film to accompany the album that you can read about HERE.
