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.

Customer Reviews

A great album

A House were a rare thing, raw and passionate, well informed and musical. They combined intelligence and insight with emotional honesty and openness. This album has depths and range and well repays repeated listening.

Got a lot of great memories traveling across the country while playing the whole CD. I would buy it again if I didn't alreadyh own it.


It's a shame this is the only album available by this band. This is good but, not the best work they've done.
