Cover Smother: Stepping Out Off The Page...

Wednesday, February 4, 2009

For the smarty-artsy pants music listener. I'm a literal loon for Kate Bush. She is in two words: bizarrely brilliant. There aren't any other two words that can describe her, she is just. I'm particularly fond of the cover photo for her 1989 album, The Sensual World. Most famous for featuring the glorious, "This Woman's Work" (which was given new life when Maxwell covered it) and much of what you hear on that song, you'll hear on the album as a whole. The album isn't the best in her catalog (that honor goes to 1980's Never For Ever, but that's another post at another time), but it's still a beautiful and luxurious record. The photograph fits into exactly what the album's music entails. It blooms open just like the rose on the cover, like a secret that's gradually being told...divine.
