Only Kirsty MacColl's second solo album in the tenth year of her career she took several years off to have children after marrying producer Steve Lillywhite, 1989's Kite is the pinnacle of her achievement. By far her best-sustained work, this lengthy 15-track album features some of the singersongwriter's best work on both sides of the hyphen. Her always-terrific vocals - MacColl was quite likely the best female singer of her generation - are overdubbed several times on most tracks to create thick, lush harmonies, most notably on the gorgeous cover of the Kinks' D. 29 tracks 98:50.
