Kate Bush remixes, reinvents, and mostly re-records songs from two patchy albums, THE RED SHOES and THE SENSUAL WORLD, and comes up with DIRECTOR'S CUT. The concept is self-indulgent and the results are far from compelling, unfortunately. "The Sensual World" finally gets its James Joyce lyrics, as Bush originally intended, and it's fascinating -- but few of the other cuts here justify the attention to detail clearly evident in the album. "This Woman's Work" in particular suffers from an overworked reinvention; the original is a masterpiece of craft and simplicity. "Song of Solomon" is one of Bush's worst songs, and "Rubberband Girl" is one of her silliest -- neither warrants revisiting. Still, Bush is in fine voice, and anything she does is worth hearing. One question, though: Why doesn't she revisit songs from her first three albums? Most would benefit beautifully from her mature voice.
The CD looks impressive, however the music was a disappointment to me.
