Building on the intrigue and quirk that has made her such an acquired taste in music, Kate Bush is back and in fine form with "Wild Man".

While I was hoping for something a bit more 'wild', with tribal drums a-banging, some screeching and lots of spunk distributed around, I had to remember that Kate has put that 'banshee in the attic' trait behind her and is moving at a glacial pace with her sounds, evident in her last album, 2005's Ariel. She's still the lyrical Mother Goose and will rightfully be so when 50 Words For Snow is released next month, as no one but Kate could formulate compassionate love letter to a Yeti. No one.
