4 stars Released in 1978, only nine months apart from her charming and endearing debut, Lionheart is often considered to be one of Kate Bush's weaker albums. I beg to differ as I find it to be a wonderful exercise in romantic and somewhat bizarre imagery. This is vintage Kate Bush. I'll admit that it's slightly less inspiring than the debut album, but it is still very very good.

Her voice on the album is as wonderful as always. And so is the musicianship, she has always had great musicians on her albums. Her lyrics are on par with the debut. In fact, I think that she has always excelled in the lyrical department of things. It is only the compositional part where her albums differ. Lionheart is full of great tunes like Symphony In Blue, Wow or Don't Push Your Foot On the Heartbrake. But it also has its share of weaker tracks like In the Warm Room or Coffee Homeground. Still, there are no bad or even just ok songs on Lionheart but they are all very pleasant to listen to, and some are even KB classics. The flow of the album is quite natural, and the songs segue into each other very well. All in all, an album where all the songs complement each other quite nicely.

In my opinion Lionheart is an underrated album, 4 stars.
