    Overall, the hybrids hold together: as their No. 1 single ‘Feel The Love’ has shown, this may well be an experiment with the mainstream that pays off big time.
  2. A skittering collage of vocal drum'n'bass, garage, and funky house that parties, in the best way, like it's July 1999.

    At its best, Home is a sumptuous, thrilling experience on a purely sonic level. There are absolutely zero boring moments here, and the details are often transcendent.

    Home walks the fine line between commercial viability and musical integrity with confidence and flair.

    You catch several moments of inspiration but overall there's the sense of things having been made to a template.

    Those two moments ["Powerless" and "Waiting All Night"] aside, Home is a very satisfying debut. [May 2013, p.107]

    At times, those love ballads veer into over-the-top Leona Lewis territory (Emeli Sandé’s More Than Anything) that only the Brits, it seems, can get away with.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This album is just so so good. A mix of drum and bass along with the odd bit of dance and pop. By far, my favorite track on the album is "Powerless" with Becky Hill, who was a semi finalist on the first series of The Voice UK. Its so so good, and very powerful.
    My mum, who hates drum and bass actually loves this album & has it on repeat in the car. This is just amazing! Go & buy it!

    Not bad but tries to cover all bases for all tastes in a half baked manner. Still a decent listen and vastly superior to the identikit SwedishNot bad but tries to cover all bases for all tastes in a half baked manner. Still a decent listen and vastly superior to the identikit Swedish House Mafia and David Guetta attempts at dance music. Expand
