2 stars For the first and only time in her career; Kate Bush relinquished the control of her career to the record company's quest for more commercial success on the back of the very successful debut album. The result of rushing out Lionheart is an album of underdeveloped songs.

Despite of this album being underdeveloped and the songs not particular good, this is still a good album. There are several good songs here. Wow is one of them. The two epic songs In search of Peter Pan and Oh England My Lionheart is the best songs here. The latter one is the best song of this album. It is an understated song with piano and her voice as the leading elements in this superb song. The rest of this album contains some rather anonyme songs. The closing song Hammer Horror is a commercially driven song and a pretty dire one too.

Yes, this is a major step back from the excellent debut album. It is a two star album with only three good songs in it. This album is what you get when the record company takes over Kate Bush and send her down the wrong path. Kate Bush is at her best when she run her career herself. This album proves this point.

2.5 stars
