Biography

2013 marks the 25th anniversary of a certain young band from Glasgow’s first public concert.

That night in March 1988, nobody looking towards the stage of Dundee University students’ union would have been any the wiser about the unknown and unsigned vision before them. A female-fronted quartet with a twangy, gang-like swagger harking back to the pout and punch of Blondie and ... Read more in Amazon's Texas Store

5.0 out of 5 stars It doesn't get better than Texas April 10, 2001
By gnomic
Format:Audio CD
Texas is my #1 favorite; EVERY album is a must have. Not a bad song anywhere. The lead singer, Sharleen Spiteri, has such a awesome and seductive voice that it makes me ache. The group plays a variety of styles and influances. The lyrics are sophisticated, yet simple. Many in the US aren'f familiar with the #1 UK band due to poor US marketing and abizmal US radio, but this group knocked the Beatles off the UK chart with thier Greatest Hits release.
If you like strong female vocals - Anne Lenox, Sara McLaughlin, Tara McClean, Chantal Kraviasuk, even Mellisa Ethridge - Just pick ANY album (or better yet, ALL of them) and buy it. You won't be sorry. In fact, you'll probably understand just why Texas makes me long to see Sharleen in concert.
This Album is truer to Texas' roots, more blues/motown influance like Ricks Road and Southside, closer to raw emotion than Hush or White on Blond where you will hear more pop and polish.

5.0 out of 5 stars UK's best kept secret December 11, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I haven't listened to "Mothers Heaven" in years. I came across it as I was looking for 'new' music to review for Amazon. When I threw in my cassette copy of "Mothers Heaven" into my stereo, I had wonder to myself why Mercury Records didn't do a better job at promoting the band. Sharleen Spiteri has one of the best voices in modern rock history in the past decade. Unfortunately the band Texas has been floundering for years with very little exposure in the US market while their music overseas have achieved mainstream success. It is a shame because what the US needs is a shot in the arm in the current climate of music which I find to be truly boring and repetitive. I first discovered Texas through a local radio station when I was in high school. I was particularly drawn to the songs they played from "Mothers Heaven" . The songs are very bluesy yet maintains a modern rock edge to the music, especially on the opening two tracks like "Mothers Heaven" and my personal favorite "Why Believe in You". "Dream Hotel" opens up sounding a bit like The Cranberries and a little bit like Mazzy Star (with a much less annoying lead singer). It has a very ethereal feel to the song. I believe it was the first song I had heard from Texas. Sharleen Spiteri has a beautiful voice. She is truly one rock's most underrated and overlooked singers today. My other favortie songs includes "Alone With You" and "In My Heart". "Mothers Heaven" is truly heavenly to listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great CD to add to your collection June 12, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I would say that the songs on this CD remind me of Ry Cooder and the Cowboy Junkies, except that I don't like either of them half as much as Texas. Mothers Heaven presents some very memorable songs and I highly recommend it for every music fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of those "Must Have" CD's September 12, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This, to me, is one of those rare "must have" CD's. It is my favorite "Texas" work, possibly because it is the first CD of theirs that I heard. Still, the mix of blues and rock is great. If you are new to Texas and like "White on Blond" I believe you will enjoy "Mother's Heaven" as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Should have been a USA hit September 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Just pulled this CD out the other day.....almost 15 years after buying it! I picked up this album in France in 1991 and could have sworn it was an American band that was hitting the charts while I was living abroad. I can't believe Texas was never played on the radio in the US! I love the lead female voice and will definitely buy more of their albums.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pop rock with soul. This album has loads of heart. September 16, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
For someone who grew up in the heyday of the Beatles, the Stones, the Doors, and Van Morrison, Texas' Mothers Heaven is the kind of music that I can listen to endlessly as I'm driving, working, or contemplating the meaning of life. The lead singer has soul, pure and simple. Her voice, mixed with subtle rock rhythm, is really quite powerful. If you like Van the Man, try Texas. They do things right.
