fantastic classic Madchester band, perfect Indie music all round, like the same mellow level as The Mock Turtles and Inspiral Carpets, you can't fault anything about this band or their music, House Of Love may they 'Shine On', wonderful vocal's from Guy Walker.

I was first turned on to the House Of Love when I heard 'Yer Eyes' playing on a stereo in a friend's house. It gripped me and it wouldn't let go. Their lovelorn guitars and Guy Chadwick's creamy vocal are truly mesmerising. Every song on this compilation is stunning. The good thing is that this album isn't even their best but it is a great introduction to to their work - many a classic here. If you consider yourself a fan of indie music then this is an essential buy...

For me, the 'House of Love' debut was perhaps the best 'indie' guitar album of the 80's, alongside 'Psychocandy'and 'Doolittle'.The follow-up 'Fontana' was also strong but afterwards successive releases got progressively weaker. For me, this best of comp. only gets 3 stars as some of the best tracks from the first 2 albums arent included e.g. 'Love in a car' and 'Hannah', while less good stuff from later LPs are. Its a good intro to HoL but get the debut if you like chiming guitars, big atmospherics.

If you only buy one more CD in your life then buy this. This is a must have collection of many of the greatest songs ever put together. As you may guess I'm something of a fan. The House of Love made music that had everything, it could in turn be uplifting and beautiful, dark and threatening, world-weary and lonely. Guy Chadwick's voice sends shivers down the spine and Terry Bickers delivered the most haunting guitar music you'll ever hear. Don't waste any more time reading this and order the CD, you'll never regret it.
