    I love Kate Bush but this is not my favourite album of hers. I can’t really decide between Never For Ever and The Dreaming, both are fantastic.

    Haha. No, her late output makes me sad. Always a pity to see an excellent artist crash so hard.

    I know that a lot of people do not get the Dead but they are truly great musicians and have done some superb albums, this is among their best along with "Workingman's Dead"

    If you have not heard them give this one a go, try and get a good copy.

    I was wondering that. Don't like either of them.

    Adrian does seem to have this nailed so far.
