I love how sinister people are.

There is a nonsensical streak that keeps you on your toes about who you want to hate versus who you should hate. 

 
And I love that Kate no longer makes my fillings drop out (an agreeable ageing of her voice dropped it down half an octave.)

Conflicted over Rolf Harris, having met him, albeit only once, he was a likable character. The real RH was not known to the world in general at that time.

the rocky outcrops are actually a waveform... of a bird, to be specific.

Loved it since the first time I heard it in 1978. Took the train down to London to buy it. (Only Virgin Records at Marble Arch had it.) I remember as I picked up Peter Gabriel's firs album while I was there. Solsbury Hill is still one of my favorite songs. I think I may have picked up Tangerine Dream's Sorcerer on that trip as well. I miss the big Virgin Records store.

I sooo wanted to like it but the more I listened the more annoying it got; I mean pi for chrissake! '3.1415 blaa blaa'. I  think I understand the album; even the washing machine song, I get what she's saying I just don't think it translates to a particularly good album. More disappointing was  '50 words for snow' which turns out to be yet another list to music (surprised?). The only redeeming feature of both these albums was that her voice was just as engaging as ever.

Hello from the northern Pacific.  I bought this when it came out and had a rough slog w/ it.  Some of the tunes were appealing, but much of it left me shrugging the cosmic "meh." Interesting thing is that I'd go back from time to time and slowly found the entire thing growing on me to the point where I really enjoy it.  It truly is a coherent piece and works best for me hearing it that way.

I respectfully disagree. Aside from the washing machine song (I mean, come on) and the "laughing with birds" segment, where her laughter sounds embarrassingly forced, I quite like the album (yes, even the Pi song), and "50 Words for Snow", for that matter. Neither is "Hounds of Love", but what is? Cheers.

I like both now; however, they were an "acquired taste" for me. Actually, I was exposed to Wuthering Heights in high school, but didn't really get interested until Kate's strange song (really, more her really cool/strange video) piqued my interest. So I re-read the book and—imagine this—got much more from it now than then! (Okay, I know a simple "yes" or "no" would have sufficed. :-)

I had it bought for me as a present, being a Kate Bush fan from the 80s. There are some cracking tracks on it, including this one, but also some real turkeys (especially the one with Rolf Harris on). IMO it would have been better released as a single CD with the dross left out. It's still worth having, though.

Kates' waveform album art mystery solved

(To the question: Has there been a change to the shape of waveforms?) 
 
Given the album's theme, I'd venture a guess that what that waveform represents is bird song. Or maybe it's Kate laughing, or her son's voice. If you expand the timeline out (horizontally expand the waveform), the graphic will look more like the cover. The pic on the cover looks like a human voice... unless there's silence in a recording, you won't see that much separation between sounds. If you were to look at Bill's voice, it might look like this:



music doesn't have that much lack of sound between sounds, though if you expand the waveform enough you will see more dips. The following is apparently Beethoven's 5th, which does have some separation:
