Wow, I'm so happy I found this thread. I adore Kate Bush, she is one of my heroes, and I grew up learning her songs on piano when I was a kid. Same with Tori Amos, who I also love.

Kate Bush is amazing, influential, and incredibly inspiring for me

Kate Bush is an artist I've been meaning to get into for ages - she seems to garner a lot of respect from you, PMO and Molecules.

I love Kate Bush so much although she can scare the hell out of me at times. Wuthering Heights is amazing.

I saw the comment that someone left about not liking Kate Bush. I was there, 23 years ago, wondering what all the hubbub was about. Then, in 1987, I purchased "THE WHOLE STORY", which may be a good starting place for someone who is new to Kate's work. It has some of her most popular work, as well as some of her most beautiful ballads. I understand that it isn't a complete "work of art", as the full length albums are, but it is a good place to ween yourself into her work.

For me, after listening to that album repeatedly (some of it harder to digest, than other parts), I was able to unleash myself on to the entire boxed set that was released after "The Sensual World". Great stuff.

Another great bit of trivia, for those that may not know. Apart from her connection to David Gilmour, a couple of her band members on the early albums were also core members of the Alan Parsons Project.

I should've known about this thread earlier. I guess I'm a fan of Kate Bush, I mean .. I bought a T-Shirt at least and I do wear it in public every now and then.

What I appreciate most is her earlier albums, mostly the three first. Her sound is a bit more accessible for me on those, but I still have favourites from her later albums. I've yet to listen to Aerial, though.

Title track from her latest album (Aerial 2006):



I still do not understand why she does'nt get more credit. Tori Amos, Sarah Mclachlan etc owe a huge debt to her.

I LOVE her, inside and out. She brings out my nutty side like no other and I'm worried I'll turn out to be the living B-side of Mark Chapman should my obsession with her reach pathological realms. Breathing is so amazing, I breathe in and out as I listen to it.

She's one of my heroes. She has four straight-out masterpieces (The Kick Inside, The Dreaming, The Hounds of Love and The Sensual World) and even her weaker albums have at least one really great song on them.

I mean, FFS:

Personally I think those four are great albums but the masterpieces are "Lionheart" and "Never Forever" two of my all time fave albums.

Kate Bush makes me all kinds of wiggly down there. Awesome singer, great pure unrestrained talent.
