This Sentient Soul, This Living Breath

 nice to see some praise for aerial, of all her work this stands out as her most accomplished. it makes sense in its resolute quiteness, its resigned calmness and acceptance. it shows us the most wonderful aspect of life which is when one finally gives up and lets life do what it will. its unforced and simply happens, nothing to prove, no ambition or need to strive it bypasses strife and strain. we happily wait for our respective death and enjoy this temporary materialization of freedom until then. a happy life indeed...

 Nice pick; I look forward to reading through this week's articles on Bush.

 I tried to find this info, but couldn't. The third inductee into the hall of fame was The Boredoms, right? Who took the first and second spots?

 Sylus Hall of Fame = Kate Bush, the Boredoms, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and the Electric Light Orchestra.

 Sorry, that should read "Stylus" obviously...

 Excellent choice and great article. Aerial may have sold fewer copies than any since The Dreaming, but Aerial still sold more than 1 million copies worldwide in the first 5 months of its release, which is pretty good considering that Bush hardly did any promotion for it and did not make any TV appearances for it whatsoever. There's no track-by-track musician listing in the album booklet, but there is on the official website, which states that Rolf Harris's didgeridoo is not on "Nocturn", but is on "The Painter's Link".

 Is Stylus planning a YouTube/ITube/WeTube of Kate's videos? That would be delightful.

 glottal, we're doing a feature-type thing on her videos tomorrow, but it's not quite an itube/youtube/wetube. keep an eye out.

 Praise be to the Stylus collective for running week-long features on Kate Bush. I hope my praise is not too little, too late. I've grown up with Kate's music -- for better and worse, but *especially* with the unknowable in-between. She continues to write songs that are (deliberately) not easy to like upon first hearing. Yet returning to the "difficult" pieces is almost always rewarding. And the Big-Sky-"pop" songs, overplayed in their 70s/80s heyday, resonate more with me now than in decades previous. She is... wonderful.
