House of Love were a band that were too good for words. Because of in-fighting and drugs they disappeared into the backside of the mid-nineties. If you listen to their music with an open mind and an open ear you will hear a band with originality, wonderful melodiousness (is that word? I mean tuneful), and, in my view, sounding as fresh today as they did all those years ago. This double disc album showcases House of Love at their best. Guy Chadwick's fragile vocal overlaying complex musical arrangement and, frankly, catchy melodies. Perhaps they peaked at a time when it was cooler to disdain this type of band. For me they remain a case-study in underachievement. When inferior bands were being feted here you'll find the genuine quality that slipped below the radar. Some of the best money I have spent... enjoy ....

I guess if you are reading this review you probably already know a bit about the House of Love. I must confess I bought this cd a while ago and never really listened to it, but that has changed recently thanks to the release of their new album, She Paints Words in Red. Whilst it might not be the best introductory album by the HOL you could do a lot worse. It contains live recordings of tracks from the first 4 (or 5 if you could the Spy in the House of love compilation) HOL albums. The track selection is pretty good in my opinion. Whenever I listen to this, or indeed most HOL albums, I always wonder why they were not more successful. The quality of the songs is impressive, Guy Chadwick is such and under rated song writer.

But the main reason to listen to this album is because it has the energy of a live album but with a more polished sound, so it never sounds over produced. It showcases the strength in the HOL live performances.

If you like good indie guitar music then give it a whirl.

I am looking forward to the live album which is due later in the year (2013).
