Fury, Hannah: Through The Gash

For a woman with such a small oeuvre Kate Bush has spawned legions of imitators. There's the good (Michelle Young, The Tuna Helpers) and the bad (Hannah Fury). What Fury hasn't quite figured out yet is how to take her UNDYING LOVE FOR KATE and transform it into a texture rather than the be all/end all of her, um, artistry. The sound presented on this 13-song outing is that of a little girl gone wild with a Casio keyboard, maybe a Karaoke machine and too much time on her hands while Mommy and Daddy are off at work. Or play. Doesn't matter. They're gone, gone and little girl's out for a good time. Too bad she spends so much time including herself and so little thinking about what listeners might actually enjoy.

Fury, Hannah: Through The Gash

My Score:

Comparing women musicians to Kate Bush is not only a tiresome cliche, but in this case, I don't even think it is accurate.

I don't hear the resemblance between Kate Bush and Hannah Fury that you suggest. I own all the albums of both women. While Fury's songwriting does sometimes resemble Kate Bush's, and while some of Fury's earliest work sounded a bit like Bush, I think Fury's last two albums have diverged a lot from the music style of Kate Bush. While Bush is all about vocal acrobatics and ostentatiously complex arrangements, Fury is all about hushed, subdued singing with sparse, haunting arrangements.

Making this comparison really adds nothing to the review and mostly just makes it sound like you either don't know what you are talking about, or didn't really give Fury's album a careful listen. In either case, the review ends up lacking credibility.
