Kate Bush’s “50 Words for Snow”: Music review

Kate Bush’s 2011 album “50 Words for Snow” has a sonic continuity with 2005’s’ “Aerial,” with Kate’s piano and vocals anchoring the subtle touches of ebb and flow orchestration, a sort of soft-hued glow of instrumentation and arrangement. Kate’s voice soothes, lulls, then shrieks, with all the weight of her experience bearing down on the listener, slowly and softly, flake by flake, like a gradual build-up of snow.

The album features guest appearances by Elton John (“Snowed In At Wheeler Street”) and Stephen Fry (“50 Words For Snow”)
