Lionheart is a curious album, displaying one step forwards then two steps back in terms of Kate Bush's progression as an artist. On the plus side she's more adventurous with her writing, reaching far more diverse and interesting topics. Her attempts to expand musically, however, are undermined due to the fact that this album was rushed far too quickly, leaving potential ideas sadly a little underbaked, leaving tracks that are weakly structured and thinly executed.
Best Tracks; Wow, Hammer Horror, Don't Put Your Foot On The Heartbrake

I love this albums warmth, simplicity and intimacy. It doesn't challenge like later KB albums but that's ok, if you want to be challenged go listen to 'The Dreaming'. Me, I like this album for what it is and listen to it when I become melancholy, or to be reminded of dear old Blighty. Oh yes, there's plenty of romanticism here folks.....

I absolutely adore 'Symphony in Blue' but can't quite tell you why. 'Wow' everybody knows about, a biting and somewhat cynical critique of theatre life. It's the strength of this album that throughout you'll find songs that take you away from wherever you happen to be. Listen to 'In the Warm Room' and you'd have to be made of stone to not feel the temperature rise just a little, if you know what I mean!

It's worth noting here that this probably isn't the album KB wanted to release, but producer Andrew Powell was at that time all powerful, guiding/forcing her to give us another 'Kick Inside' type album. It makes sense when considering her follow up 'The Dreaming' with its sharp edges and challenging musical arrangements, and that she produced herself from then on.

The thing I have noticed the most especially from American fans of Kate Bush is that they don't get "Lionheart" as one reviewer succintly put it.
True,Kate Bush has always been the most English of all English singers.Her looks and her voice recall the windy wily moors of Northern England,the lush greenery of the English countryside,the dark eroticism of English manors,and nowhere is this more apparent than in the brilliant "Lionheart".
Hammer Horror is about a plot by an understudy to kill a play's main protagonist to steal the part from her or him for that matter.Hammer refers to the venerable Hammer Studios who produced all the Dracula and Vampire movies in Britian from the 50's to the 70's.
Coffee Homeground is another song about murder ,its 19th century atmosphere is amzingly produced and nowhere else is Kate Bush's voice more eerie.
Oh England My lionheart is a true classic in both lyrics and performance.You can actually feel the aching in Kate's voice as she vows her love for her country.In the hands of any other artist this song could have been a syrupy mishmash but with Kate Bush,it's a strong declaration of love without being aggressively patriotic.
Kashka from Baghdad is a sympathetic story of 2 gay men who even though shunned by their friends and families for being gay don't care because as the landlady can clearly see every night under the moonlight,they are deeply in love and obviously oblivious to what the world thinks of them.You can hear in Kate's voice her longing to join them.I find this to be typical of Kate's sensual persona.
And by the way ,Kate has always tackled taboo subjects long before it became fashionable to do so.How many of you know that the song "Moving" from The Kick Inside is about orgasm??

I think this album is a bit underrated since everybody is always so wild about Hounds Of Love. "Lionheart" is Kate Bush at her best.
This album is lush and sensual and in a way deliciously 70-ies with its weird cover photography and instrumentation.
A warm record to cherish and keep a secret and listen to in the darker and colder part of the year (for that specific reason the album's overall atmosphere strangely reminds me of Bjork's "Vespertine")
It doesn't suffer the somewhat hysterical overproduction of later work such as "The Dreaming", "The Sensual World" and "The Red Shoes" (although it loses one star because of "Coffee Homeground", which in its silliness should've been on "Never For Ever".)
On Lionheart the melodies and choruses are richly beautiful ("Fullhouse", "Symphony in Blue") and songs like "In Search Of Peter Pan and especially "Oh England My Lionheart" have that typical Romantic-Kate-Bush-Old-English-Roses-And-Nursery-Fairytale-Feel that is so unique (and pretty hard to describe..)
That Feel of secrets in the garden and whispers in your sleep.
The smell of coffee and dusty attics and female eroticism...

This is by far my favourite of all kate's albums. her voice is fresh and melodic some thing to be treasured. her best song i think on this album is "Symphony in Blue" I cant wait to hear more from kate the Red Shoes is the best musical ever for any one who likes a darker sound yet in a classical sense buy Lionheart or if you are a fan of kates already buy the box set "This Womans Work"

It really does matter which version of the album you have. I recently acquired an version found in her box set and I notice a marked increase in quality. But i've never thought that the sound of the American edition was that lacking. You just have to listen harder. ;)
