Bush’s 1980 release Never For Ever was also her third studio album and, remarkably, her first number one in the UK. Never for Ever, however, diverges considerably in stylistic diversity, ranging from the direct and energetic ‘Violin’ to the nostalgic waltz of the chart-topping single ‘Army Dreamers’. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The artwork exudes a dreamy and otherworldly quality, aligning seamlessly with the album’s thematic explorations and diverse musical journeys. She bettered this formula for 1985's Hounds of Love, making that album's "Running Up That Hill" her only Top 40 single in the U.

Her sound has always been too notch from the beginning and I’m glad she’s now getting the recognition she deserves. However; the other Single featured on this Album: 'Army Dreamers' I was not so keen on, but I would say on the original vinyl LP that Side Two is probably the stronger one of the two. Bush cited his ability to capture reality in a fantastical yet profoundly beautiful and elemental manner and found his depictions hauntingly evocative.The project serves as the quintessential example of using music as a conduit for fantastical storytelling, illustrating the conflicting forces of good and evil that manifest within us and how these entities present themselves to the external world. Never for Ever is the only studio album by Bush up to Director's Cut (2011) not to have a title track.

However, as someone has already commented, the older albums do seem to benefit from being remastering better, including this one. Breathing," about the repercussions of nuclear war, conveys enough passion and vocal curvatures to make her concern sound convincing, while "Army Dreamers" bounces her voice up and down without getting out of hand. Babooshka' I think had already reached Number Five, and a friend had 'fibbed' to me the following week and told me it had gone to Number One when I'd missed the Chart - I believed her, as this had been Kate's best effort since her last chart topper of more than two years previous. There's a much more 'solid' feel to this version, that feels like the original vinyl being played on a VERY good system - the glass breaking/windows opening aren't any more shocking or trebley, but the songs have more 'body' (if that makes sense) and the bass is much more defined - you can really hear Giblin's strings vibrating on 'Breathing' in particular.

Two years after her first two releases, Kate Bush took her career into her own hands and produced Never For Ever. Babooshka"'s motherly charm and flexible chorus make it one of her best tracks, proving that she can make the simplest of lyrics work for her through her tailored vocal acrobatics.

Ever since the mastery of her debut and with entries like ‘Wuthering Heights’, Bush has been a game-changer, but Never For Ever succeeded in its mission to signify her as an indisputable marvel of music and fuser of alternate worlds. The album became Bush's first record to reach the top position on the UK Albums Chart, also making her the first female British solo artist to achieve that status. It was also the first ever album by a British female solo artist to top the UK album chart, as well as being the first album by any female solo artist to enter the chart at no. The dark and gothic "Never For Ever" contains tales of deception, death, longing, and a love of Egypt and violins.In incandescent clarity, multiple voices and full dynamics they present the artist's unhindered, unmasked voice. already this is one of my favourite albums of all time after owning it for just a week, Kate is that sort of artist. Similarly, ‘The Wedding List’ was influenced by François Truffaut’s 1968 film The Bride Wore Black, a revenge film featuring a widow who murders the man who accidentally shot her husband on her wedding day. not quite sure what people's dislike is with this pressing, mine sounds phenomenal and I got it used while in France. Blow Away (for Bill)- another change in direction with a song that makes me feel really good as the vocals are as ever as chanting as ever they could be (a Christmas feel) and another gem.

The initial two albums had established a distinctive sound that permeated every track, characterised by opulent orchestral arrangements complementing the live band’s presence. I have to admit, I'm totally biased towards Kate Bush, having every album she's produced on Vinyl, CD and MP3. Acts like Kate Bush enrich this medium with vibrant colours, intriguing graphics, evocative imagery, and even thought-provoking text – it can hold the power to convey messages and themes that sometimes elude the music itself.What he created firmly resonated with Bush’s inner world, echoing the artistic influences she held dear. According to Bush, the title alluded to such conflicting emotions, including positive and negative binaries, stating, “We must tell our hearts that it is ‘never for ever’, and be happy that it’s like that”. It’s an inevitable aspect of the human experience – the convergence of inner and outer worlds – and the cover’s depiction of the intricate and omnipresent nature of emotions and the darkness within is astounding. I always find that listening to vinyl makes me just sit and listen - much needed in this crazy world. The first two albums had resulted in a particular sound, which was evident in every track, with lush orchestral arrangements supporting the live band sound.
