Overview

Kate Bush's first album, The Kick Inside, released when the singer/songwriter was only 19 years old (but featuring some songs written at 15 and recorded at 16), is her most unabashedly romantic, the sound of an impressionable and highly precocious teenager spreading her wings for the first time. The centerpiece is "Wuthering Heights," which was a hit everywhere except the United States (and propelled the Emily Brontë novel back onto the best-seller lists in England), but there is a lot else here to enjoy: The disturbing "Man with the Child in His Eyes," the catchy rocker "James and the Cold Gun," and "Feel It," an early manifestation of Bush's explorations of sexual experience in song, which would culminate with "Hounds of Love." As those familiar with the latter well know, she would do better work in the future, but this is still a mightily impressive debut.

Outstanding talent from an artist who was not even out of her teens when the album was recorded.

I was 13 and I only knew one song: wuthering heights (kate first and only no. 1) when I bought it I fell in love with al songs. My favorites are: wuthering heights, moving, kite them heavy people, oh to be in love and the kick inside. this is Kates first album and her first single Wuthering heights went straight to no.1 but the album got stuck on no.3. Her voice is high and she's almost screaming when she is singing, but that's wat makes her work so unique and beatiful. I didn't regret that I bought this album but she made better ones like: hounds of love and the sensual world. I hope you will buy this CD it's worth it.

This album is unlike anything you've ever heard. The melodies are inventive and the singing is extraodinary. Kate Bush is a major talent.

For one so young when this album was made, Kate Bush was extremely mature in her writing and performing. Her lilting style accompanied by her often ridiculed dancing to her songs made her something of a laughing stock in the UK. But her songs endured and have stood the test of time (my has it been 16 years since this was released). Over time her songs have become more gritty, with strong lyrics about subjects such as nuclear war (Breathing) and child birth (This Woman's Work). This album is timeless...and so it should be.
