I waited in anticipation for the arrival of this CD. Would Alans departure affect the sound of what is undoubtedly this countries most undervalued band? would Dave actually live through any ensuing tours which could result from this album? How on the face of this planet could the boys follow up the musical mountain that is SOFAD? The answer was immediatly apparent with the release of Barrel of a gun, SOFAD is not a mountain No, ULTRA moves me! What a JOY. DM (especially the genius of Martin) are phonominal, they go from strength to strenght with seamless effort. Home, Usless, Freestate, Insight, where the hell do these inspired tunes come from? I am a fan, and therefore impartial readers of this review may question the validity of this opinion, my only retort to these questions is buy this album, listen to HOME, and be prepared to go out and buy every other recording that this fandabbydozie band have ever made.
