"I'm sick of trendy music critics who slate "MOR" groups just because they are what they are. Some of the best albums of the last ten years might be lumped into this category, The Devlins' Waiting, George Michael's Older and, certainly, Lighthouse Family's Postcards From Heaven. Never a big fan of their debut, Ocean Drive, Postcards is a much moodier, mellower record full of subtle, implied emotion. The closest they come to 'pop' is on the two lead singles Raincloud and High, but it's elsewhere that the real gems lie. The ballads are timeless - particularly Sun In The Night, Lost In Space and the title track. As dreamy and endearing a trio of songs as you could ever hope to hear. The album is essential for these tracks alone, but the whole works splendidly and for anyone, and I mean anyone you self-righteous muso bastards, this is a very worthwhile purchase."

"As a huge Spinners fan with an appreciation and deep respect for Seals and Crofts, my jaw dropped when I heard Postcards From Heaven, a near-flawless hybrid of them both, with a dash of Beatles and Blackbyrds sprinkled in for good measure. Every song on this mesmerizing album bears repeated plays. But don't think that this record is merely an exercise in retroactivity; the Lighthouse Family sound is indeed contemporaneous to Seal and especially the Christians (why does it seem there is no reference to that immensely talented combo anywhere on Amazon?) not to mention Jai and the late Ephraim Lewis. One day the Nineties will be rightfully looked upon as a golden era for British soul, and the Lighthouse Family will be as worthy a representative of that revival as any. NOTE: some European pressings of Postcards From Heaven, such as the one I found, do NOT include "Lifted", one of three sizable hits (the others being "Raincloud" and "High")."
Brilliant album...

"There are only a few albums in my collection that I have taken a liking to upon first listening. This album is definitely one of them. I discovered LH while vacationing in Thailand of all places, where it is not uncommon to hear their music played live in the local pubs. To this day, though, it still baffles me that they can be so popular in Europe and parts of Asia, but not the U.S. Lighthouse Family are the best kept secret out there...although from reading the other reviews it appears that people are starting to catch on and appreciate their music as much as I do. Although "High" remains the song that "put them on the map," it is the other songs that make this CD so special. Their sound is quite mature, led by Tunde Baiyewu's calm, soothing vocals; the melodies are lovely and their lyrics are quite profound and very spiritual. I highly recommend this album!!!"
