My Audio Fidelity version of Hounds of Love arreivd today perfect timing. It’s stunning. Listening to it now, being transported back to 1985 and twirling around my parents’ living room singing and dancing to Running Up That Hill and The Big Sky and having my mind expanded by the masterpiece that is The Ninth Wave. This remains not only my favorite Kate album, but my favorite album period. It never fails to amaze me, move me and I hear something new 25 years later every time I listen. HOL remains one of my strongest sources of inspiration as a writer and poet. Hats off to Kate and Del for creating this iconic piece of music. Without HOL, I would be nothing.
