I agree with all you said, BUT
Are you going to reveal the voter list @P'NutButter?
Also, King Of The Mountain gives me ''Spyro 2 - Ripto's Rage OST -Autumn Plains'', which is amazing
Without giving too much away, I haven't actually zeroed the whole 'Aerial' album bar 'King of the Mountain'.
But even if I had, I don't think it makes that huge a difference on the average once you've got 20 or so participants.
The Kick Inside - 7.8 (2 x 10's)
Lionheart - 6.8 (1 x 10)
Never For Ever - 7.3 (3 x 10's)
The Dreaming - 8.0 (2 x 10's) the last half of the album is a knockout.
Hounds of Love - 8.7 (6 x 10's)
The Sensual World - 8.4 (3 x 10's, 1 x 11)
The Red Shoes - 7.3 (4 x 10's).. shame about the last half of the album.
Aerial - 7.6 (4 x 10's) the interludes brought this down.
Directors Cut - 6.6 (0 x 10)
50 Words For Snow - 7.2 (2 x 10's)
Yeah, when I close up shop on the voting.
SUBMITTED! I'll have to comment on some as we go along as well.
Definitely won't finish this, but throwing into the wind that "The Sensual World" would've been my 11, and "The Dreaming" my fave album.
Submitted. Minimal commentary done. Why real life has insisted in getting in my way... I'll be having words.
Yes, I somehow made it. Scored everything and just sent in the results. And while I did commentary...it's rough. I hope y'all like reading lots of two word throwaway comments.
My scores are in! I didn't manage any commentary but will hopefully join in with some along the way... Walk Straight Down the Middle needs to be out first, thanks. xo
This rate is gonna traumatise me. Of the zeros most recently mentioned, Walk Straight Down the Middle and King of the Mountain both got 10s from me!
My scores coming before the deadline, promise!
Y'all really waited until the last minute to submit scores...
This gif really speaks to hosting a rate
Trying to finish the scores of some of the b sides
I am so close! Frantically finishing up.
I did commentary for all tracks... but have got a feeling some of you are not going to like some of it.
I've only been able to give scores to the main albums and won't get a chance to do the b-sides properly so will likely have to sit this one out, unfortunately.
I will, of course, be following along.
I am so amazed at how her discography is so solid and consistent, I also agree with @1991 when they said there is a very prominent feminine quality with her music, especially in records as The Dreaming and The Sensual World, there is a certain earthy quality to her producing, I always wondered how she would have been as a producers of other acts.
Director's Cut is definitely the most disappointing, but more because bar some songs, for an instance the reworked version of Moments Of Pleasure which I found extremely moving, some of the songs have pointless reworks (Never Be Mine, that to be fair should be heralded as a classic in Kate Bush repertoire), it is still a decent album, but quite disappointing for her standards.
Also I feel the reworked version of Wuthering Heights is superior to the original, Kate Bush really came to her own vocally speaking from The Dreaming on, she really displayed such a range of emotions and layers that her first years kind of lacked.
I also find always so extremely interesting how she created The Dreaming, for instance drinking milk and eating chocolate to have that raucous voice, I'd also would say that it slightly edges Hounds Of Love as her best work (Hounds Of Love is obviously a classic masterpiece)
