"It just keeps getting better and better. I loved Terry Hall when he was in The Specials and Fun Boy Three. Now that he has his solo career, I love it as well. It proves that there is more to Terry Hall then meets the eye. 'Home' sounds different than the bands of his youth, with a pleasant melange of not so typical love songs. I recommend this album to everyone."

"I know it's not a nice thing these days to say that an album is "perfect pop", but this is truly one of those albums that after a few listens will draw you in. I never heard any of Terry Hall's previous work before hearing the "Forever J" single when looking for Ian Broudie productions, and I was pleasantly surprised. Surprised enough that I picked up the album and was stunned by it's sheer beauty.I can't say enough about it. Terry's voice, layered over top of jangling guitars and swirling synths... heaven.If you like the Lightning Seeds, you will love this."
