Ain’t no question of honour here, I’m pleased
I'm convinced Dive is the best album Kate Bush never made. Fly is really frustrating because it has SUCH high highs and I'd love to hear her do more rock, but so much of it is... either half-assed or just really fucking mediocre.
That’s the thing with her, the albums are wildly inconsistent save for a handful - Dive is obvious but La Luna, Eden, Harem and Dreamcatcher are all rock solid too.
(And I’m never going to stop longing for a Kate Bush version of Captain Nemo now, damn it!)
Captain Nemo is the most obvious one, but there are a lot of points on Dive where her vocal similarity to Kate is shocking. Like, if I had not known who it was I would 100% have thought it was Kate Bush, wouldn't even have questioned.
I've listened to Harem once so far. It's good, but I think a little too gimmicky. I'll keep trying though. She actually managed to make me enjoy What a Wonderful World, so twelve points to you, Saint Sarah.
Also the lyrics to Once in a Lifetime make me so uncomfortable. I did not want to know that much about Sarah Brightman's sex life. Even if her idea of BDSM is pretty laughable.
Did she do any other rock songs like Why / How Can Heaven Love Me / A Question of Honour / Ghost in the Machinery?
After Eden she went in a more electronic direction for the most part. Symphony has some I think, but I honestly haven’t listened to it in years. I prefer my Brightman more ethereal, which could be why I’m drawing a blank
And yeah, I can definitely see what you mean re: Harem - it gets dangerously close to beating you over the head with the concept, but pulls back just enough. Plus as lowkey corny as it is, The Journey Home is one of my favorite songs of hers
Oh @ my autocorrect putting Dreamcatcher when I meant DreamCHASER jeez
