Outstanding album

This 2nd release marked a transition from the more earthy, acoustic based debut to the Flowers more pop based direction to follow. Lyrically, Home finds some Paul Simon moods, both contemplative and celebratory. Check out the title track, Christchurch Bells, Trying To Get Through, Sweet Marie and Eyes Wide Open for introspective moments and Give It Up, Hardstone City and Movies for road tripping.

Greatest unkown band?

One of the best bands of the late 80's. Almost 30 years later, this is still one of my favorite albums of all time. Traditional, pop, jazzy, blues, a great mix of influences make an incredible blend of original outstanding music. I hope they come out with something new sometime soon. This band deserved much greater success.


This album got me through the summer of '90 as an exchange student in a place where little English was spoken. I played the cassette until it popped. Lyrics are introspective, poetic, and the music is seven shades of awesome. Glad to own it again. It sounds as good as the first time.

Hothouse Flowers should have been a bigger band. They were/are certainly better than most.
