I first bought this album on vinyl in the '80's and I've always thought that it was one of her best. It's hard to believe that it was ever recorded in a hurry as it sounds so well crafted, and I had no idea that Kate now supposedly dislikes 'Oh England, My Lionheart', which is one of my favourite Kate Bush tracks. I've bought this again on CD since and it's still great: full of atmospheric, intelligent, thought-provoking, emotional and beautiful songs. Kate is a multi-talented performer, both musically and visually, and something of a genius. Her music brings back wonderful memories and it's a shame that we don't hear more from her. EMI could put out a compilation of B sides/extra tracks which so far have only been available in the 'This Woman's Work' box set. It would also be nice to see stuff like 'The Whole Story' video re-released onto DVD. Well, in the meantime, there's still Kate's older material to listen to and fall in love with, as the fantastic Lioheart proves. Enjoy.

It has been said of Lionheart, Kate's follow up to The Kick Inside that it was a retrograde step in her career, too like the first album. I think that the similarity is one of it's strengths, it continues the themes of The Kick Inside while exploring the darker side of the human experience. The orchestration is beautifuly executed and Kate's voice has never sounded lovelier. The material does seem to thin toward the close except for the theatrical Hammer Horror but an album that contains songs of the quality of Wow, Symphony in Blue and In Search of Peter Pan still deserves a place in the heart of any lover of Kate's Music.

For me, this is Kate Bush's best complete work, free of the sort of musical experimentation and twoddle that manifested itself in some of her later albums (and indeed in some reviews). This may be pop but every track is memorable with a great lyric and a great tune. I may be easily satisfied but I can live without the experimental fripperies and machinations of half the tracks on her later albums. From the very first note to the very last, you will never tire of this album or have to press "Skip" on any track. Buy it.

Yes indeed - 'Second Star on the right Straight on 'til morning'

It is quite a scary Edwardian Nursery sometimes, definitely Rackhamesque (he would have - should have - designed a terrific cover) but really you are safe there and it is a good place to be.

This is the one that Kate Bush is on record as saying she likes the least - rushed and she did not have as much control as on all the others, so DON'T TELL! The strongest bunch of songs, a warm sound and arrangement that is not duplicated in this or almost any other catalogue (except maybe Nick Drake with Joe Boyd and John Wood to look after him). Maybe it is better not to have total control and ten years off every time to make an album.

So many gems here, kicking off flawlessly with the lovely melody of 'Symphony in Blue', then the underrated sad, sad Edwardian Nursery lament 'In Search of Peter Pan' segueing into that other lament of Camp Failed Luvvies that is 'Wow' (this is an Edwardian Backstage to complement the Nursery) then 'Heartbreak', an evocative breakdown going on there, then `Oh England My Lionheart' (like our own beloved anthem, admirable sentiments but a dreary tune) then there is 'Fullhouse' (`Watching the wipers squashing the leaves away' - a reminder that this Album's spiritual season is Autumn) 'In the Warm Room' is a tad embarrassing but nice, 'Kashka from Baghdad' is cosily exotic, 'Coffee Homeground' a wonderful Weimar Cabaret Macabre - and last but definitely not least, the Autumnal Halloween Classic itself 'Hammer Horror.'

So this was an unrepeatable LP for anyone, such a variety of songs embracing such diversity and originality of subject matter and yet with a unifying and peculiar Englishness.

I call that rather good.

When Kate Bush was recording her debut LP The Kick Inside in the summer of 1977, EMI envisaged her as an albums artist, someone who would take a few years and a few records to build up a fan base and a critical response. You can imagine the surprise of all parties when Bush achieved a No.1 hit with her debut single "Wuthering Heights" and multi-platinum success with the album, released in February 1978.

What ensued was a whirlwind of hectic promotion in the UK, Europe, Australia, the US (briefly), and Japan through the first half of 1978. So much for a slow-burning albums artist. Bush was catapulted into the pop mainstream, and it was a bit of an awkward fit. Such was the speed of her success that EMI deemed it a good idea to capitalise immediately and put out another record in time for the Christmas market. Bush had not found sufficient time to write, owing to her never-ending promotional commitments, and arrived for the sessions in Nice in July 1978 with only three new songs.

'Lionheart' is filled up with material dating back to 'The Kick Inside' and earlier, but it unfairly has a reputation as a quickly cobbled-together rush job. The sessions in Nice were, according to the excellent Under the Ivy: The Story of Kate Bush, relaxed and luxurious, but there were some tensions with producer Andrew Powell - Bush wanted different musicians and more control. It was to be the last album where she did not have as much of a say in the arrangements and production.
