You know that hollow, echo-y 'huh' noise some people make just before they throw up all over your carpet? Well, Simple Minds have captured it and made it in to a song, but for the sake of decency they have pretended the sound is actually the word 'home'.
Jokes about how funny the chorus sounds aside, this track is really pretty alright. While it's more mature and easy-going than the likes of The Killers and The Bravery, the guitar riff on this track demonstrates exactly the kind of thing Flowers and Endicott were thinking of when they decided to rip off the eighties, and it's probably the kind of music they'll be making in twenty years' time when another generation of young 'uns have come along to rehash their music and steal their thunder.
If this track is a good reflection of the forthcoming album, then it's probably going to sound a lot like New Order's 2001 album Get Ready, which wasn't a massive success despite being really quite good. But in a time when The Departure and Bloc Party are getting the trendies dancing, maybe with this Simple Minds have come up with the perfect soundtrack for their sleepy Sunday afternoons.
