The more educated Kate fan will generally complain about this one - after all, it is your
average Greatest Hits collection, with a smidgen of new stuff thrown in for good measure.
However, for the uninitiated Kate fan, this is certainly a good place to start. Released
in 1986, after the massive success of "Hounds of Love", this sold just as well, and for a
good reason - it's a great collection.

I mean, look at the tracklisting! Wuthering Heights (presented here in a new vocal
version - you could debate all day about whether old or new would triumph, but i think
they're just as good as each other)...Running Up That Hill, Cloudbusting, Babooshka,
Man with The Child In His Eyes, Wow...and of course, Breathing, a song which,
on it's own, makes the album worth the money (At least, for those who don't have Never
Forever).

Of course, for the gentleman who's already a fan of Kate's, there's the new song. A
wonderful, wonderful ditty by the name of "Experiment IV", which rides on a catchy riff,
and Nigel Kennedy's excellent violin in the chorus. Utterly infectious - a good single.
Generally, I like this collection - it does show a lot of sides of Kate Bush, including her
"mad" side (The Dreaming, despite not really being a hit, is included here), the piano, the
full-out rock, and of course, songs that are utterly memorable. If you want to start with
Kate, then this isn't a bad place to begin your journey (Although personally, i'd stick a
copy of Hounds of Love in your hands and then tell you to thank me later)...for the huge
Kate fan, it's certainly not worth a 10. However, for the uninitiated Kate fan, it
certainly is worth a 10.
