TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – ‘The House Of Love’ – By THE HOUSE OF LOVE

Remarkable albums from the past…

The House Of Love by THE HOUSE OF LOVE
Released: July 1990

ALL MUSIC wrote: “Following the combination of indie success and massive hype
leading up to the band’s first album proved to be too much for the original lineup,
with Bickers leaving after a series of problems and pressures once the group signed
to Fontana. Yet rarely has a fraught series of recording sessions resulted in something
so flat-out stunning. The House of Love’s second self-titled album in a row remains
something of a high-water mark in what can loosely be termed U.K. post-punk.”
Score: 4.5/5 – Full review here.
