Cold House is the fifth studio album by English rock band Hood. It was released on Domino Recording Company in 2001.[11] Three tracks feature vocal contributions from Doseone and Why?, two-thirds of Clouddead.[12] "You Show No Emotion at All" was released as a single from the album.[13]

Reception[edit]

Cold House received generally favorable reviews from critics. Metacritic gave the album a rating of 87 out of 100, based on 14 reviews.[1] Phillip Sherburne of Cleveland Scene called it "not only one of the most melancholy records of late, but also a triumph of musical gene splicing, drawing together folk-flavored indie rock and the skittering beats of experimental electronica".[14] Nathan Rooney of Pitchfork Media noted that "with Cold House, Hood seem to have finally stumbled into a sound all their own".[6] Bradley Torreano of AllMusic described the album as "the next step toward the icy-cold future of alternative rock that Kid A forecasted".[2]
