A Sensual Side to the world of Kate Bush

Kate Bush followed up the tremendous success of 1985's Hounds Of Love with The Sensual World, another completely unique yet completely Kate Bush work. The title track oozes sensuality, with Kate taking her audience on a journey through growth in love and life in Love And Anger, The Fog and Reaching Out. Kate returns to her narrative songwriting in Heads We're Dancing, a song where Bush encounters a dancing Hitler, followed by a hauntingly prophetic Deeper Understanding, in which Bush predicts the outcome of technology on human relationships even back in 1989. Between A Man And A Woman follows on from Hounds Of Love's Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God), while Never Be Mine is a song of a love unreturned. Rocket's Tail is a song of epic proportions thanks to the assistance of The Trio Bulgarka, while This Woman's Work leaves a definite mark on a listeners heart, telling of a man's loss of his wife. The Sensual World concludes with Walk Straight Down The Middle, rounding the sensual journey of Kate Bush.

Sensual is the word...

...even when she ups the tempo on tracks like Heads We're Dancing and Love & Anger. The Sensual World flows seamlessly from one movement to the next and, as with all her albums, develops a rhythm all its own.
You can hear the artistry so clearly on this beautiful masterpiece, particularly in the layering off Reaching Out, Deeper Understanding and This Woman's Work. Outstanding work from a true artist and like The Dreaming, grows with each listen.

As a girl, Catherine Bush studied piano and violin while attending the St. Joseph's Convent Grammar School in Abbey Wood in South London. She also amused herself playing an organ in the barn behind her parents' house. By the time she was a teenager,...
