Kate Bush, "The Red Shoes" C/D?

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed
It's no classic but it doesn't deserve the indifference with which fans have greeted thsi album since its release (though the critics, at least here in America, were sympathetic).

It's the Kate Bush album I play the most. Good short pop songs, most of which have a couple of unexpected arrangements that redeem the rather anonymous self-production. "Eat The Rich" was a terrific first single; "Big Stripey Lie" is a return to The Dreaming-era Bush exotica; the title track adduces Michael Powell and manages to sound like his overwrought ballet looked like. The big ballads ("Top of the City," "And So is Love") are sung with a minimum of fuss.

What say you?

I have always liked it a lot. I exchanged a gift copy of Zooropa to get it. I like the first song (Rubber Band Girl?). I like the one with the Bulgarian singers (The Red Shoes?). I like the one that quotes a Jewish prayer I can never remember with the four angels. I think Top of the City is nice. I don't think the production is anonymous at all. I vastly prefer it to anything Tori Amos has done since.

It's a weak "Kate Bush" album, in that a lot of it is (relatively) commercial sounding and not stunningly original or creative ideas-wise.

I think my hang-up with it is that sense of it being a thematically abandoned concept album. The title track seems completely lost in the middle of the record. The artwork too, lends a sense of some kind of expectation that never exactly gets fulfilled.

That said... if you can ignore that, and the occasionally naff playing of the guest musicians on certain tracks (actually more of a guilty pleasure for me) it's very frequently great. In a much more straightforward way than I suppose some people had been used to from her.

Alternating deliciously light-hearted and outright fun (this song featuring Prince!) numbers, with absolutely burning sad weepies. This album is not short on terrific songs.

I've found myself defending it before. However, if I *have* to place it in my affections alongside her other work it still gets kinda disrespected. I mean I'll take it over "Lionheart" but that's not saying much.

I'll stick with my "The Kick Inside" LP; after "Never Forever", it seemed like only the singles really mattered ("Sat In Your Lap" etc).

I may be completely incapable of being objective here after all. Iffy bits aside 'The Sensual World' is fantastic.

retort otm - dude, dreadful compared with what? It may not be one of her stronger outings, but the first two tracks alone make it a keeper. The fact that David Gilmour straight rips on "Love And Anger" is just icing on the cake.

Right. Back to The Red Shoes then...

Well anyway, The Red Shoes is fine. Nobody's mentioned "Lily," which I like a lot -- witchy funk. The aforementioned ballads really are good. The title track's great. It gets watery toward the end, but not a bad album. And yeah, she's no singles artist. The Whole Story is a great collection, but The Dreaming and Hounds are straight classics, top to bottom.

i agree with "the sensual world" being utterly magical... yes, it is not "hounds of love" (hello earth, one track i could never live without) or "the kick inside" or any of the older material but, it is still an incredible record. she is just a genius that still goes relatively unheralded in the US, which is sad, sad, sad.

I dunno about that. The Red Shoes is her highest charting album; she's got two gold albums. Outkast's Big Boi has given several interviews wherein he declares his love for Bush and "Wuthering Heights" in particular. Maxwell? I won't mention Tori Amos.

And so we come full circle to the Pat Benatar thread. Her cover is a strange strange thing. It should be a showcase for her voice (and it is) but I'm not quite sure what the point is of proving that your pipes are almost-but-not-quite in Kate B's class.

Or maybe Pat and Neil just really like the song, which is possible and kinda sweet.

From her Capitol Records bio:

Patricia Andrzejewski, born January 10, 1953 in Brooklyn, began studying voice as a child growing up in Lindenhurst, Long Island. Her mother had trained as an opera singer, and Pat eventually developed her own impressive four-and-a-half-octave vocal range.

So the tale of the tape sez it's an even match. In the ring though... almost-but-not-quite.

Just what I wanted to see. A giant picture of someone else in a KB thread!

Merely reading the title of the some of the tracks on The Red Shoes gives me goose pimples - "Lily", "Top Of The City"...despite a two or three tracks that fall flat, it's an amazing album. And how the hell a Prince collaboration actually worked, I can't figure out.

Although it did contain a few classics, The Sensual World sounded mostly boring to me. Like trying much too hard to come up with a Hounds of Love II.

Prince has got a song on his Emancipation album called "My Computer," which borrows quite heavily from Kate Bush's "A Deeper Understanding."

Re "Why Should I Love You?" According to the Prince bio "Possession," Bush was disappointed with what Prince had done to her song. After receiving the cassette demo, Prince proceeded to overdub instruments and vocals until the original melody line was lost. Bush had to re-remix it.

Re The Red Shoes vs The Sensual World, I've typically chosen the latter but now I'm not so sure. TSW starts and ends strongly (first three tracks esp, "Rocket's Tail" and "This Woman's Work") but dips sharply in the middle; TRS rises to a four-song stretch of greatness ("Moments of Pleasure" through to "The Red Shoes") but falls away again. Maybe a draw?

I would agree though about the difference in the problems with each album: the weak parts of The Sensual World are weak attempts at "Kate Bush" songs; the weak parts of The Red Shoes are when Kate comes across as just any girl.

me either. i also had this one point where in the back of my mind i was relating the bush's red shoes with hbo's horrible liteporn series the red shoes diaries. it wasn't just the titles but also the cover artwork for red shoes which continues to evoke all sorts of corny and trashy scenarious and themes for me.

"Corny and trashy scenarios" are exactly what make Kate Bush great! Y'all think The Dreaming or the second half of The Hounds of Love is Melville (or, gad, Emily Bronte) worthy?

Part of my problem w/ TRS and TSW may be the lushness of the productions -- I always liked her best when she was dinking around on the Fairlight dreaming up these shimmering phony orchestras. Here, I get lost w/ all the guitars and Bulgarian women's choruses and such.

Naive Teen Idol (Naive Teen Idol), Tuesday, 27 September 2005 00:27 (twelve years ago) Permalink

i also disagree with tim's assessment: "heads we're dancing" through "never be mine" is a terrific block of songs, the latter especially being one of my favorite songs of hers period. "rocket's tail" is a bit of a stumbling block - the choral singing at the beginning is fantastic and then david gilmour comes in and ruins it all. "reaching out" is pretty weak, i'll grant, but overall, i don't sense a "dipping sharply".

joseph (joseph), Tuesday, 27 September 2005 07:25 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Okay "dipping sharply" is a bit strong. But I think "The Fog" is awesome, and then "Reaching Out" is such disappointingly over the top guff, and "Heads We're Dancing" just feels like a pointless song to write, like, why would you write that song??? "Deeper Understanding" is v. good, "Never Be Mine" is beautiful and really should be on my list of stand outs. I've never liked "Between A Man and a Woman" because I can't shake the perhaps unfair suspicion that it's tacitly condoning domestic violence.

But yeah, my point was more that if you just heard the first three songs you'd think you were in for an utterly amazing album and instead it's just very good. Coming after The Dreaming and The Hounds of Love it really does feel like a shift down a gear.

Coming to this album for the first time after being a huge KB fan since I was 16. Not exactly a revelation on the level of finding another chapter of Ulysses, but more like hearing from an old friend you were really close to but hadn't heard from in a while. She could sing the alphabet in a certain tone of voice and I would listen.

Gonna give Aerial another listen as I kind of dismissed it when it came out as "boring".

She didn't really want him to do much: http://noisey.vice.com/en_uk/blog/how-prince-met-kate-bush-and-made-why-should-i-love-you.

Bush asked Prince to contribute a few background vocals to a song called “Why Should I Love You”, which she had just recorded in full at Abbey Road Studios. But when Prince received the track, he ignored the intructions and dismantled the entire thing like a crazed mechanic taking apart old cars on his backyard. He wanted to inject himself into the very heart of it, weaving his sound amongst her sound, giving it a new soul entirely. As Koppelman explains, “We essentially created a new song on a new piece of tape and then flew all of Kate's tracks back on top of it… Prince stacked a bunch of keys, guitars, bass, etc, on it, and then went to sing background vocals.”

Maybe she was just too polite to turn it down? (I actually like both versions, even though the Prince one is a little bonkers.)
