Album Review

I Am the Greatest is the unusual but intriguing album from Dublin, Ireland's A House. In places melodious with a bent twist; in others, dissonant with an arresting groove. Picture the Velvet Underground nursed on Celtic roots. Highlights: the title track's dissection of the price of fame and "Endless Art," essentially a roll call of dead.

Fondly remembering A House

I bought this album in a second hand record store in New York in the summer of 1995. It was only 50c from the bargain bin; I'm guessing because noone had really heard of A House in New York. It's the best 50c I ever spent. I couldn't guess how many times I have listened to this album since, but it is STILL one of my most listened to CD's. The album is certainly a grower - I initially thought that it had nothing on 'My big fat merry-go-round' an earlier release by A House, but with a few listens it proved that it had. The album puts me in a good mood every time I hear it despite some of it's depressing lyrics - The version I have only contains 13 songs omitting Cotton pickers, Victor and Live life dead died, which I have yet to hear. As i've not heard these songs, I hope they haven't upset the flow or unnecessarily drawn out the length of what to me is almost a perfect album of good pop/rock songs done in a unique Dublin style.
