30 years ago today, on 16 October 1989, legendary singer/songwriter and innovative performer KATE BUSH released her sixth, triumphant album ‘THE SENSUAL WORLD‘.
The ever eccentric and noise-exploring Bush sings about falling in love with a computer, dressing up as a firework, and dancing with a dictator and the intriguing music translated
her wayward views bizarrely fitting, yet accessible. Never a dull moment with Kate Bush!
AllMusic wrote: “An enchanting songstress, Kate Bush reflects the most heavenly views of love on the aptly titled The Sensual World. The follow-up to Hounds of Love features Bush unafraid to be a temptress, vocally and lyrically. She’s a romantic, frolicking over lust and love, but also a lover of life and its spirituality… She possesses maternal warmth that’s surely inviting, and it’s something that’s made her one of the most prolific female singer/songwriters to emerge during the 1980s. She’s never belonged to a core scene. Bush’s intelligence, both as an artist and as a woman, undoubtedly casts her in a league of her own.” Full review here. Score: 4.5/5
