#650 Kate Bush – The Sensual World

Kate Bush‘s The Sensual World album was released in 1989. She has been on this list two previous times. James Joyce‘s Ulysses was her inspiration for this album. Bulgarian vocal ensemble Trio Bulgarka are featured as backing vocals on a few song.

Check out “Heads We’re Dancing”, “Love and Anger“, “Reaching Out“, “This Woman’s Work“, and maybe my favourite “Never Be Mine“.

I like Kate Bush, but I often think she sounds the same on every album. If you own one album from her, then you have enough. I think this album was great, but it did not have a song like “Running Up That Hill“, although “Never Be Mine” has a special feeling for me. I have trouble understanding her lyrics when she sings. It sounds like the music is above the vocals. If you are going to own two Bush albums, then make this one your first album. 8.9/10.
