3 stars I really like this album. I listened to this a lot before I'd heard any of the others. While it's often considered to be a weaker effort of Bush's, I've always found it perfect to relax to. The songs are quite slow and romantic.

I am very fond of Kate's early style and reckon that "Lionheat" has some of my favourite songs of that period, such as the dreamy fairy-tale like "In Search Of Peter Pan". It's also somehow slightly dark and eerie, which I find appealing. "Wow" is another favourite moment and was the only hit from the album. The piano leads most of the songs and the other arrangements are often very subtle in the background setting a laid back atmosphere.

Kate's voice is more delicate here than on her debut which was released earlier the same year. Other highlights are the lovely "Oh, England, My Lionheart" which has some very interesting lyrics. "In The Warm Room" is also good. The other songs are fairly average but still quite enjoyable. "Lionheart" would be a good edition to your music collection. 3 stars.
