Movie Reviews

Kate Bush Under Review
Duce Jackson | Bogue, KS USA | 08/08/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD sadly is one of the few of Kate's work available at this time. If you are an avid fan you will probably want is just because there is so little of her on DVD, but it was disappointing to me because there is a lot of stuff from the UK that I haven't seen. On this disc there are seldom more than thirty seconds or so of any performance or video played. It is mostly the interviewers talking about how great she was. If you don't know much about her work it is a good overview of her career, but I don't think most of her die hard fans with be satisfyied with the sound byte style that has been employed to review her songs and videos."
Good for "newbies" but not for much more.

"I've been following Kate Bush's career since her first album, "The Kick Inside" was released in 1978. I'm not an aficionado or a fanatic, but have kept tabs on her and have all of her albums and a few collectable/bootleg CD's. Well okay, you could consider me a fan.

This DVD isn't endorsed by Kate and does not live up to her high recording standards. It's mostly made up of interviews with four fairly knowledgeable people about Kate's life and their take on her music, some very short (old) interview clips with Kate and a few poor quality snippets of her videos. The entire DVD is of VHS quality IMHO and doesn't really offer anything new.

For a newbie it might be a good starting point, but for anyone looking for quality Kate Bush material it will be a disappointment. If you want good quality Kate Bush video and music look elsewhere...it's almost all available.

A "one off"

"I'm not really that familiar with Kate Bush but certainly, after watching this disc, i feel i have a very good understanding of what she brought forth.
Several professionals from the music business speak passionately about her unique style,taking us through all of her albums one by one honing in on key tracks.
Segments from many of her song-video's are shown and numerous interviews with Kate herself are scattered through the program. There are a few brief clips of Kate performing live.
By the time this program arrived at her 4th album "The Dreaming" it became very clear to me that there is no one else like Kate Bush in modern music. A true original"
Awesome!

"I never heard of Kate Bush until I met my boyfriend. He loves her so I bought him this DVD collection for Christmas. I watched it with him and it made me a fan. It was an awesome perspective on Kate as a person and as an artist and had many clips of her music that made me want to hear more. She is an amazing artist."
