    Two full decades after the first singles by Bronski Beat, Jimmy Somerville's HOME AGAIN reasserts the falsetto-voiced singer as one of the most distinctive stylists of electronic dance music with the singles "Come On" and "It's So Good."
    By the end of the '80s, Jimmy Somerville's records with Bronski Beat and the Communards sounded unpleasantly dated and of their time. By 2004, when a new generation of bands were taking Bronski Beat's take on skeletal dance-pop as one of their primary influences, Somerville's Home Again sounds both entirely in keeping with his earlier work and utterly contemporary. Songs like "Under a Lover's Sky" and the lovely ballad title track wouldn't sound out of place on a circa-1984 dancefloor musically, but Somerville's voice is a richer and more complex instrument decades on. 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. ~ Stewart Mason
