Kate Bush: 50 Words for Snow

I’m still torn on whether I really like Kate Bush’s new album, 50 Words for Snow, or not. My opinion of the music seems to depend more on external factors, such as the day, location, and even weather, rather than my mood or the actual artistic merit of the songs. Listening to the CD in my car on a sunny day was morose and tedious, yet playing it at home on a cold, snowy evening was an atmospheric and lovely experience. It’s definitely not an album I will listen to often, but there is a certain charm to it. All the tracks flow together to create one seamless mood, which prevents any one track from standing out and/or lifting the album up from its quiet melancholy. So I would recommend it for fans of Kate Bush, Air and Radiohead, but those who prefer more drama and variety may be unimpressed.

  1. I have liked music by Kate Bush since 1979 and her new album is nice to listen to. I am especially a big fan of Emilie Simon who is similar in music and love her style and I reckon Emilie Simon deserves more recognition especially sounding similar to Kate Bush all Bush fans will like Emilie,it is hard not to.
