House Of Love
The House Of Love was introduced to be my a former friend of mine, who was
interested in more recent bands, such as
Social Distortion, Sonic Youth, Oasis to name a few. The House Of Love was
from England, lead by guitarist/vocalist Guy Chadwick. A blend of British pop
best describes this group, and reading some reviews of Babe Rainbow,
some say the songs contained on this release just may have been ahead of its
"You Don't Understand" leads the album off, with a very powerful
pop style. "Crush Me" is way mellower, where "Cruel" has a
good powerful pop sound, compared to that of Love & Rockets. (Maybe not as
hard rocking as their "I'm Alive.") "High In Your Face" is
another medium-paced pop rock song, where "Fade Away" is just as
mellow as "Crush Me."
"Feel" kicks in high pop rock gear, yet it shapes into a
medium-paced rhythm. "Girl With The Loneliest Eyes" has great
poptential -- it's very dreamy (as say The Moody Blues), as this style
is pretty much is the shape from the second track on. "Burn Down The
World" seems to lose interest, boring. "Philly Phile" is just
as boring, yet the last track, "Yer Eyes" has more hope than the
previous two songs.
In reading other reviews, it's a disappointment how the second song and
throughout the rest of the album it didn't compete with the opening track.
Yet, the album is somewhat listenable, for mellow-type pop songs. Babe
Rainbow may take more listens to ensure a better rating, yet there are
songs on this album are enjoyable, for those who enjoy the mellow-pop style
