Awesome!!..Kate Bush is amazing. Every one of her songs take you to a place...very visual. Her music is waaayyyy ahead of our time. I think of it as "demensionalized"..as in she draws you into another dimension..and on top of that...multiple dimensions through each song. Unfortunately her music can be difficult to digest,as they say...But i tell people to give it a chance...let it take you. I've learned alot through her music. I don't compare her with Tori..differant dimensions.When i first saw Tori...i knew that was my dimension. I could totally relate to her ;there was no thinking involved
I feel the same way with Kate, chessmate. The Red Shoes, Never For Ever and Aerial always take me on different, and magical journeys. I also love the way her voice changed with age, you can follow her growth in her albums.
kate's soooo beautiful. love love her. Cloudbusting is one of my fav video ever... get teary each time i watch it.
a friend made me a 2 VCD set w/th all her videos a looong time ago (good quality, nicely done w/th menus and everything) -- maybe i could make you a copy if you want? besides that i have 'The Single File' and 'The Whole Story' VHS. that's a shame they don't release her videos in proper form!
ps: now that i think about it, maybe i could try to rip the VHS and make a dvd, uhmmm. i tend to forget i have a dvd recorder/player.

I'm now getting into Kate's The Sensual World, deeply moving work. My fave as of now is Never Be Mine. Here is a review I found on a Kate site.
Never Be Mine -- Incredible. Even better than the previous song. More haunting stuff with Trio Bulgarka -- another very sad song. Before I read the official lyrics to this song, I thought that Kate was having a vision of herself in an alternate world, living a different life, and wishing it was really hers. After seeing the official lyrics, it seems more like Kate has had a romantic affair with someone who leads a much different life than hers. The idea is still very similar. As she thinks of him, she longs for life she could have led with him -- a different life. But she knows that this life is not the one for which she is fated and she knows that she can't run off with this man.
