3 stars After the triumph of her debut album, Kate rushed nto the studio to release this record. I think her company must have forced her to release a second album very quickly, therefore 'Lionheart' is a little bit uneven. The first side of the vinyl is simply irresistable. 'Wow' remaiins a classic and the title track is one my favourites.

The second side of the album, on the other hand, is disappointing. The first four tracks don't add anything, and 'Hammet Horror', the album's last track, is, thank God, the brilliant exception: A track that's one of the best Kate's written. The quality of this track doesn't compensate us fully, but it's better than nothing.

If I had to come to a certain concllusion, that would be the following: 'Lionheart' is more than good but less than great. Those who love the 70s sound, try 'The Kick Inside'. That doesn't mean that 'Lionheart' is a lesser album, but if only there were more fine tracks on the second side of the album! -like the ones on the first side. Anyway, it's much better than 'The Dreaming' though!
