The KT Fellowship - Before The Dawn album review

Album Review

Worth the wait – Kate’s live album finally emerges

You had to be there – as they say – but if you weren’t, here’s the next best thing. Since Kate Bush’s critically acclaimed – and then some – comeback shows of autumn 2014, we’ve anticipated the album release. When she returned to the Hammersmith Apollo (née Odeon) stage after 35 years away, moving audiences to raptures with visually breathtaking sets and consummate performances, a new fuse was lit. At long last Before The Dawn arrives, with its three acts on triple-CD (or four vinyl), and while it remains a mystery as to why there’s still no glimmer of a DVD of such a spectacle, it confirms her mastery and perfectionism. The atmosphere survives, as does the sense of suspense as to what might come next.
