"50 Words for Snow" is as close to classic pop gold as we got this year. But, this being Kate Bush, it sometimes meanders -- into unexpectedly awesome places! But, still. "Wild Man" is the most accessible track on the album, and maybe the most seductive song you'll hear all year about a Himalayan yeti who may or may not double as a proxy for Bush herself. --E.M.
