    Home doesn’t successfully balance variety and cohesiveness, and as a result, Home sounds more like a collection of songs than a listening experience that is meant to be heard front to back.

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

    Rudimental have already shown on their tremendously successful singles that they have that special knack for making exciting and diverse pop. Sadly on Home it is a knack that we hear too little of.

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

    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.

    The soul vocals of 22-year-old Yorkshire lad John Newman helped send the hit ["Feel The Love"] into anthemic stratospheres. The rest of this debut doesn't quite take off in the same way.

    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. Full Review »

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link 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!
