Part of the imminent overload of Bush media coverage marking her return to live performance, this looks promising --

And Exhibit B is this Guardian piece by Simon Reynolds, which is a very astute piece of historical contextualisation --

Thanks, Andy. Yes, I read that piece too. Not bad. He gets major brownie points for putting "The Dreaming" in its proper place in her career. I loved her from Day One but I remember when I heard that it seemed like she was suddenly in a different league.

Not a massive devotee but it was a pretty good overview. Could have done without Steve Coogan but talking heads had some interesting contributions, pleasant surprise to see Viv Albertine called upon. On second thoughts, Coogan's observation about her being more Keats than Byron contained more than a nugget of truth I think. A more Byronic Kate Bush would be quite something.
