Home is a somewhat forgotten Depeche Mode single, coming after the huge impact that "Barrel Of A Gun" and "It's No Good" had obtained through the sheer shock that Dave Gahan wasn't actually dead after all.

Dave was very much alive, thank god, and those first two singles from Ultra certainly proved that point.

However, the third single was this, "Home". Continuing the long tradition of (albeit sparsely seeded) Martin Gore fronted singles, Home is without doubt a highlight of Ultra.

Starting off with a sick downtempo rhythm that is not unlike Massive Attack, it slowly progresses cooly into the first verse. It is soulful (as usual for Martin), and once he reaches the chorus it really takes hold. A very strong song indeed, it does indeed bring similarities with the aforementioned Massive Attack, especially their remix of Garbage's Milk.

It is difficult to compare this single mix to the album version as they are almost identical, but much like the single mix of Useless it is obvious upon comparison to favour the single mix. I would not usually do this with Depeche Mode single edits, but really with Home and Useless they really do improve upon their original album counterparts.

This disc also contains remixes, of which AIR definitely take centre stage for their typically Moon Safari-esque take. Lovely indeed.

All in all, a great single from Depeche Mode. Some may say this album (Ultra) marked the critical end of their career, but I do hope to hear more from the band in the years to come.

Perhaps if Martin can allow Alan back into the fold things will improve...
