Never For Ever
Cat no. 0190295593889
Remastered Version. Two years after her first two releases, Kate Bush took her career into her own hands and produced Never For Ever. Though at the time she was younger than 21, Bush confidently became the careful, experimental studio-only artist she remained for the remainder of her career. Bush created a marriage of groundbreaking, up-to-the-minute technology with little-used acoustic instruments. She also tempered the little girl voice that was her trademark to produce a work of brilliance. Never for Ever opens with Babooshka, a song that sets an auspicious stage for what follows. Her spiritual fascination continues with Blow Away and All We Ever Look For. The true highlights of this album are the lilting waltz of Army Dreamers, as well as Breathing, a song about an unborn baby who reports on a nuclear holocaust from within its mother's womb. This rich album hints at the many delights that were to follow in Bush's career.
