On this day:
At 16th September of 1985,the album ‘Hounds of Love’ by Kate Bush was released.
Hounds of Love is the fifth studio album by the English singer Kate Bush, released by EMI Records and it was a commercial success and marked a return to the public eye for Bush.
It was Bush’s second album to top the UK Albums Chart and her best-selling studio album, having been certified double platinum for 600,000 sales in the UK, and by 1998 it had sold 1.1 million copies worldwide.
In the US, it reached the US Billboard chart top 40.
The album’s lead single, “Running Up That Hill”, became one of Bush’s biggest hits, and it produced three further successful singles, “Cloudbusting”, “Hounds of Love”, and “The Big Sky”, all taken from the album’s first side. The second side forms a concept album about a person drifting alone in the sea at night.
Hounds of Love received critical acclaim on its release and in retrospective reviews.
It is considered by many fans and music critics to be Bush’s best album, and has been regularly voted one of the greatest albums of all time.
The album was nominated at the 1986 BRIT Awards for Best Album, where Bush was also nominated for the awards for Best Producer, Best Female Artist, and for Best Single (“Running Up That Hill”).
In 1998 Q magazine readers voted Hounds of Love the 48th greatest album of all time, while in 2000 the same magazine placed it at number 20 in its list of the “100 Greatest British Albums Ever” and the third “Greatest Album of All-Time by a Female Artist” in 2002.
