JFK once famously said of the space race "We choose to go to the moon and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard". Not sentiments that hold any great sway in the world of Michael Bublé it seems, his style of music is as easy as it gets and Home is a typically safe, pop-oriented ballad.
While he is seen by some as being one of the saviours of swing, this is far from any big band razzmatazz, instead being a quietly downcast love song carried by gentle strings and acoustic guitar. The jetset lifestyle appears to be getting to the young crooner as he sings "Another aeroplane / Another sunny place / I'm lucky I know / But I wanna go home", which may explain why he looks so miserable on the cover.
Light, more accessible than the House of Commons and as comfortable as a warm bath, Home is the epitome of 'nice', and there is nothing wrong with that, unless you prefer a challenge of course. Less a mission to the moon than a trip to Tesco, where this single should help his new album sell by the trolley-load.
