Home Again

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
By the end of the '80s, Jimmy Somerville's records with Bronski Beat and the Communards sounded unpleasantly dated and of their time.

He's still capable of one of the most spine-tingling falsettos in pop music history, but Somerville uses his lower register more here, most effectively on the Hi-NRG dance track "C'Mon" and a startling cover of Depeche Mode's "But Not Tonight." Both a sterling comeback album for his '80s fans and a quality introduction for newcomers, Home Again could be Somerville's best record since Bronski Beat's still powerful 1984 debut, The Age of Consent.
