"Looks like I'm in the minority, but this is one of the most disappointing albums I've ever heard. To me, the first four Fairport Convention albums are bursting at the seams with memorable songs; the songs on Full House are completely forgettable. Even the short songs drag, and the nine minutes of Sloth is excruciating."
Perhaps Their Best

"One of Folk-Rock's finest jewels. This record followed "Liege and Leif" as well as the leaving by Sandy Denny of the band. Both factors contributed to low expectations at its release. Yet "Full House" was and is a major success. The vocals and song writing evince a keen, authentic sense of what Fairport Convention understood its qualities to be. Moreover, the playing of Swarbrick and Thompson--not only replete with virtuosity but also clearly a shared discourse--places this album among the greats of Rock and Roll.
It's a limetime top fiver, for me."
