I've had a change of heart... House is one of my favorites
on September 24, 2013
To be honest, when House first came out it wasn't one of my favorites. Maybe I was caught by surprise, and compared it too much to Katie's previous albums. Maybe it was the lyrics to "I'd Love to Kill You," which I didn't quite understand. But now, in hindsight, and after listening to it many times since then, House has grown on me. House is great, and one of her best. For starters, Katie wrote or co-wrote most of the songs and she did a wonderful job. They're excellent songs, and refreshing compared to the seemingly never-ending Mike Batt songs that are starting to all sound the same (as on Katevan). This album sounds more like Katie herself. And her voice is a wonderful and beautiful as ever. There is really no one like her. Some of the songs have a stronger beat, even almost a dance beat, which is nice to have as a part of a larger Katie Melua collection. So today, if I look at Katie's entire body of work up to now, House stands out as unique, refreshing, more personal, and one of her best.
