Hounds of Love by Kate Bush

This has to be the album of the year in terms of classic songs being brought back into the modern consciousness - thanks Stranger Things. It had to be the one I closed the year on. Kicking off with Running Up That Hill is a brave move as it is an absolute tune, but the rest does stand up. The album is in two halves - purposely - with the first being a collection of great songs and singles. The second half is a bit more of an experimental work, a woman falling through the ice and experiencing… something. I was less enamoured with that but actually considering it’s a bit out there, I liked it.
