About this album

Review by William Ruhlmann

On its debut album, A House reveals a taste for driving, catchy guitar rock somewhat in the style of U2, although the lyrics are full of attitude (attacks on journalists (“That’s Not the Truth”) and production team Stock, Aitken & Waterman (“Stone the Crows”)), and violent imagery — song titles include “I Want To Kill Something,” “Watch Out You’re Dead,” and “Violent Love.” The album contains the raving “Call Me Blue,” which hit number nine on Billboard’s Modern Rock Tracks chart in December 1988.
