Very rare 2005 UK EMI label 16-track 2LP set - eccentric, sensual, poetic and playful British singer and songwriter with the subtle metaphors and sublime palette of expressive vocal textures' 1st album in twelve years - since 1993's 'The Red Shoes' - incorporating elements of rock and reggae as well as folk, classical and renaissance music.

Whereas Bush' more normal focus is fantasies, personifications, ghosts, mysteries, angels and other immortals, 'Aerial' is more an ode to her everyday life and abstractions - divided equally between a record simply being a collection of more unrelated songs - entitiled 'A Sea of Honey' and including the single 'King of the Mountain' - and the 'A Sky Of Honey' part, which is a suite dwelling in the experience of outdoor adventures on a single summer day...

Vinyls are manufactured as an 180 gram pressing - packed in front stickered gatefold picture cover - complete with picture booklet.

Condition: 2xVG++ (Vinyls)/VG++ (Labels)/2xM- (Inner Sleeves)/M- (Booklet)/VG++ (Cover):
Vinyls are sublime - high lustre and hardly any signs of play or handling.

Side 1 label for record 1 and Side 2 label for Record 2 have a single light, simple, small and superficial spindletrace. Record 2 has a single, hardly visible sleeve line in the otherwise superlustros vinyl, whereas vinyl on Record 1 is plain mint - looks like an album tried on and then stored.

Inner sleeves are mint - as is booklet. Cover has the utmost faint opening corners rubbing and cover is otherwise mint - a simply superb copy.
