Director's Cut

Genre: Rock; Lead Performer: Kate Bush

The beloved English art-pop eccentric’s first CD since 2005 is a characteristically odd proposition, with Bush redoing the vocals and drums on tracks from 1989’s The Sensual World and 1993?s The Red Shoes. (Three songs receive total overhauls.) But if Director?s Cut is a tad superfluous, it?s also gorgeous: She reclaims ”This Woman?s Work,” which has been co-opted by shows like American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance, with stunning fragility.
