EDITORS’ NOTES

After gently warming up with the swaying title track, Rudimental’s debut album immediately delivers the hard-hitting single that stormed UK singles charts in 2012, “Feel the Love.” Enlivened by a crackling drum 'n' bass groove, joyous refrain, and funky organ riff, the tune is emblematic of the rousing fusions that make Home recall early ’90s pop/dance alchemists like Massive Attack and Soul II Soul. The quartet of producer-musicians at the group's core embrace an ecstatic dance-'till-you-drop ethos that's further articulated by a variety of guest vocalists (including BRIT Award Critics' Choice-winner Emeli Sandé, upcoming American rapper Angel Haze, and upstart UK soul singer Ella Eyre). Sure, there are moments of reprieve—like the downtempo, muted four-on-the-floor pulse and liquid synths of "Spoon"—but Home is at its best with crowd-pleasing, party-rocking anthems ("Waiting All Night," "Not Giving In").

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

I've been waiting all night... more like months!

This has been released in the UK for months now, I can't wait any longer. But an album worth a wait.

UK vs US

Despite their late release into the US, I still enjoy Rudimental's songs, especially since each one has an entirely different sorry to tell unlike most US Songs today, which really only use sex as a theme. Overall, I WISH THEY RELEASED IT SOONER HERE!!!

Missing two songs

Seriously, after months of waiting, this doesn't even include "Give You Up" (feat. Alex Clare), "Alien Basement", or "Solo"? Instead, it's just a bunch of "Feel the Love" remixes. That's disappointing. "Give You Up" is such a great song. I guess I'll just have to get the non-deluxe version and get the other good deluxe songs through other means. I have to say, Rudimental is a great artist, but they seem to be persistent on screwing over their American customers.
