That voice. That whisp that becomes a deafening, aching cry. The subtlety in the song constructions that sweep from evocatively intimate to explosively bombastic. Everything that Kate Bush fans have loved about her for decades has not dissolved. Her dedication to deliver her artful musical outings on her terms are as impactful as ever. ’50 Words For Snow’ stands, for me, as 2011’s strongest musical release and rings in the return of one of the U.K.’s most enduring artists.
The album is a journey. It’s an experience. A salubrious, delicious, atmospheric and satisfying experience. Don’t miss it.
