  • Engineers: Del Palmer, Haydn Bendall, Brian Tench.
  • Though not the most prolific of album artists, Kate Bush's works make up in impact what they lack in frequency. Her style and material has always been unique, eccentric even, but HOUNDS OF LOVE is probably the strongest mix of controlled musical experimentation and lyrical expression. It deals with big issues--childhood fantasy and trauma, conflict, sexuality--but rarely lapses into pretension. The intense arrangements are perfectly matched to the subjects: "Running Up That Hill" is climactically erotic, "Cloudbusting" broodingly triumphant, while "The Big Sky" is just big. And it's all her own work.
Professional Reviews
Q (6/00, p.78) - Ranked #20 in Q's "100 Greatest British Albums" - "...This beautiful, crazy record remains her finest hour....the music was to prove her most sophisticated....Fantastic."

Alternative Press (7/95, p.87) - Ranked #44 in AP's list of the `Top 99 Of '85-'95' - "...HOUNDS OF LOVE introduce[s] a more streamlined sound, keyed to the relentless beat of [songs like] `Running Up That Hill' and `Cloudbusting'..."

Pitchfork (Website) - "Kate Bush became a total auteur, embracing the possibilities of digital sampling synthesizers and creating a perfect marriage of technique and exploration."
