Kate Bush: The Kick Inside (EMI EMC 3223) *

Sandy Robertson, Sounds, 18 February 1978

WHAT IS this supposed to be? Doom-laden, "meaningful" songs (with some of the worst lyrics ever; sample: "Beelzebub is aching in my belly-o/My feet are heavy and I'm rooted in my wellios") sung with the most irritatingly yelping voice since Robert Plant.

Total word count of piece: 178
