Prog Reviewer
3 stars There had been two singles taken from Kate Bush's debut album The Kick Inside (released in February 1978), both containing album tracks only, and the same procedure continued with Lionheart, the slightly weaker econd album that was maybe pushed out a bit too quickly. In November 1978, one month before Lionheart, came Hammer Horror / Coffee Homeground. Neither of the songs among my favourites of the album, nor did the single reach top 40 in the charts.

Wow / Fullhouse was released in March 1979 and 'Wow' was a top 20 hit in the UK. Bush has said the song was her attempt at writing something spacey in the Pink Floyd style. Spacey it may be, but quite far from Floydian atmospheres. It's a mellow and very sensual song about show business. I still enjoy it.

'Fullhouse' was one of the three newly composed songs of Lionheart. It is pretty mellow too but gets a bit edgier on the chorus, which I find less pleasant than the wonderful, moody melodies before it.
