is the first album from Edwyn Collins since his cerebral haemorrhage in 2005, which left the former Orange Juice frontman seriously ill in hospital. Dont be fooled by the title, though. Recorded before Collins hospitalisation but only mixed after his recovery, this record isnt so much a story of rehabilitation as and album written in the spirit of reflection. Much of Home Again
, you see, finds Edwyn chasing his history, retracing his roots--see the ancient-sounding, folksy "Leviathan", written about Collins hometown in the East Highlands of Scotland, or "Libertinage Rag", which finds him singing "Ill take a train/Ill take a plane/Way up north, where they know my name/Where they dont bug me/How some folk do" over deft, finger-plucked guitar and subtle percussion. Elsewhere, therere songs of love and affection ("In Your Heart" and "One Track Mind"), a bluesy, Biblical stomp in the shape of "7th Son", and the gorgeous title track--a delicate, classic-sounding torch song that stands not just as a symbol of Edwyn Collins survival, but as a story of joyful salvation for any of lifes tired travellers. --Louis Pattison
