Kate Bush fandom may be among the most obsessive since the Grateful Dead. She is revered as a Goddess by many, and her voice is truly unearthly - now that she's stopped screeching like an owl. I personally think she hit her peak with Hounds of Love and The Dreaming, but her work since then has been uneven and mushy. So call me a blasphemer for saying that - I dare you! Even so, Hounds is one of my all-time favorite albums, and its climax is a surge of emotion that may be unmatched…whew!
