Arra, it was only some very mild criticism of Jig of Life and The Big Sky.Some of the comments I read on here, pretty much all of which I concur with, were focusing in on what's negative about the album. I don't really want todo that. Its not that the points are wrong or invalid. Its just - FUCK OFF - this album is great, end of story.
Yeah, I can see the similarity, the helicopter and shouting are very Wall-ish, and the yoke flying over the crowd during this but in the gigs was even more so but it sounds to me more coincidental than a direct influence. it's not that similar, like. Its hard to do anything with shouting voices and helicopter noises without sounding like the wall.I'm gonna go out on a limb here (and @Shaney is gonna kill me for saying it), but side 2 (or parts thereof) reminds me a bit of side 2 of The Wall by Pink Floyd. Come on, the percussion on Walking the Witch. Thats Run Like Hell, no? Even the grunts and shouts on it, The Trial, no? I never read any more into it to see if there was any connection between musicians, contributors, etc, but regardless, I don't think I'm wrong.
12 Things You Never Knew About Kate BushIn a stunningly premature move, the NME featured Kate Bush in a ‘Where Are They Now?’ article in August 1985. By the end of the year, her album ‘Hounds Of Love’ - generally regarded as her masterpiece - had reached Number One in the UK album charts.
Waking the witch was my alarm clock song on my old jvc cassette/cd player!!! every morning it attempted to wake me..i love that songWaking the Witch as well. Two very silly tracks really. The Jig of Life kind of sounds like a comedy number from the Princess Bride or Willow or something. Did it make any sense live when she was acting it out?
I love all the what I assume is fretless bass throughout the album. I just kind of assumed it was Mick Karn but it isn't, although he appears on some other stuff by her.
Watching You Without Me and The Morning Fog are quite touching songs.
I heard Waking the Witch on the radio yesterday. Can't say I'd ever heard it on the radio before, and here we are, a day later, talking about it on thumped. Coincidence? (probably)Waking the witch was my alarm clock song on my old jvc cassette/cd player!!! every morning it attempted to wake me..i love that song
