Informative and entertaining DVD

"I am always skeptical of DVD biographies and such. Looking at the cover art I was even a bit apprehensive about picking this one up -- scared it would just be another unauthorized ho-hum affair without much new information or insight.
This is definitely worth the price however -- you won't find any gossip here -- instead you get informative interviews with musicians who played on the sessions -- as well as commentary from others who were there when it happened.
Hounds of Love is a great masterpiece that is worthy of discussion. It was cool to watch this DVD and get a little peak into some of the movies/events/etc that may have inspired the songs.
The only thing I still don't agree with, and this has nothing to do with the DVD really, is that THE DREAMING was a failure! In my own personal opinion DREAMING was just as good, if not better than HOUNDS OF LOVE. That's a matter of personal taste though.
If you are a Kate fan and want to spend a chill afternoon learning a bit more about an album we already love to death, pick this up."
If you're a Hounds of Love fan this is quite worth your time

"Full disclosure: I'm not a Kate Bush fan. Her music is just not my type of music. Except for Hounds of Love. It's phenomenal. If you're a major fan of her work, well versed in the trivia and minutiae of her career, this DVD may not have anything for you. Its most notable flaw is a lack of participation from Bush herself. But if you're a casual fan, or a fan of this particular album, you may enjoy the presentation.
I love the "sausage-making" aspects of music documentaries - all the creative decisions, the happy accidents, the fights that changed music history - and the DVD brings them out, track by track. Even without Kate Bush herself present (there's a barely-audible tape interview in the extras) there's plenty of insight from the other musicians."
An In-Depth Profile of Kate's Masterpiece

"This release is a definite MUST for all fans of Kate's "Hounds of Love." Not only do the interviewees discuss the background and making of the album, but we are also taken on a journey through the conceptual story of the album itself via breathtaking visuals and informative narration. Full of valuable insight from musicians, Kate historians, and even Kate herself, this documentary pays thrilling tribute to one of the greatest musical narratives of all time."
