Michael Kiwanuka's Home Again is honest and refreshing. Songwriters who can perform their own style and music deserve the utmost of respect. Having heard Michael being interviewed on CBC radio, he also is a humble, hard-working and optimistic musician.

Kiwanuka is a phenomenal singer and songwriter. He pays tribute to the greats of the past, and adds his own style to create a fusion that is both emotional and authentic.

This CD containing a bonus disc is amazing! Michael's voice and delivery sounds like Ray Charles, but with a jazzy relaxed vibe-I can't wait for more from this artist- love it!

HASH(0x9cebe018) out of 5 stars Flawless! April 25 2012
By N. Gray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I didn't know about the hype of this guy; I was simply watching Rage one morning (Australian music program), and the usual dribble that assualts me at that time of morning was instantly transformed by this guy singing 'home again.'

I didn't get it. Here was a young man in 2012, singing like he belonged in the 'oldies' section of my CD collection. I thought, 'i'll keep an ear out for him', and proceeded to answer the questions being asked of me by my assignment...

... but I couldn't get it out of my head. I couldn't remember any of the words, and I could only remember but half his name; Google did the rest. Still not having heard anything from him apart from the brief snippet caught by my half inclined ear during that sleepy Saturday morning in Darwin, I found out that his album was being released soon.

Long story short, I acquired the damn thing.

I am a musician. I am a musicologist (among other things). I am a tough man to please when it comes to 'new' talent. But after one listening, this album went straight onto the ipod, the iphone, the USB stick in the car, and the 'spare' mp3 player... IMMEDIATELY.

It's not the most amazing thing you'll ever hear. It's not going to rock the music world to its foundations; especially not the industry as it is today. For instance, he doesn't promise to get undressed, drunk, arrested; surprisingly, he doesn't offer to undress anyone else. He doesn't pee on anyone, and he doesn't defame the male or female gender claiming that all men or women are a$$holes. He doesn't even get all ragamuffin on anyone's behind - it is a really under the radar thing he's done here. He's almost come out saying, 'i don't care if this doesn't make me a millionaire - here it is anyway!' But what an understanding this man has of music!!! This album is really deeply beautiful; the ingredients are all right! He gets it, and I am a fan.

If you can get a hold of it, be sure to grab the 'deluxe' version, as it has 15 songs on it as opposed to the standard 10 on the normal release. Some of those extra 5 songs are different versions of the album songs, but 3 of them are new and strong enough to be on the album proper. 'Ode to you' is a standout of the entire release, although it's not on the normal release. This is why I exhort you to keep searching for the deluxe version - it is worth it.

Anyone looking for something old in something new, this is it. Michael Kiwanuka is the reincarnate Curtis Mayfield; he is the new Bill Withers. And whilst these giants of the genre spring to mind when one listens to Michael, there is something undeniably new about this man that defies comparison, and so should their be. Otherwise, why would anyone buy this instead of an original Withers or Mayfield classic? No, this album is not a reaching back to revive a forgotten vibe - it's a recreation of that vibe relevant for today. Unfortunately, I don't think it will be relevant for today's 'people'. Don't let it pass you by.

HASH(0x9cebe06c) out of 5 stars Not retro. Timeless. July 5 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I bought this album today and have listened to it twice already. I can't remember the last time that happened. It's just hauntingly gorgeous. Lush classic soul orchestration, a 70s singer songwriter vibe and a touch of African phrasing in the vocals hinting at Kiwanuka's Ugandan heritage. This isn't reto, it's timeless.

HASH(0x9cebe84c) out of 5 stars A worthy new talented debut April 9 2012
By Jetrocket - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Michael Kiwanuka is a young British singer/songwriter who has gotten a lot of buzz in recent years for a number of limited release eps featuring his stripped down and throw back style. Now that his first long player "Home Again" has been released onto the masses, the question is does he live up to the buzz or are we victims of the hype? I would say "Home Again" lives up to the buzz. Home Again is a compact 38 minutes; short by today's standards of overly-filled releases but just right for the project. Home Again brings together most of the tracks from the 3 eps released between 2010 and 2011 and adds a clutch of new songs to the mix. Together they blend into a cohesive statement that merges together folk, soul, pop and jazz stylings to create something that leaves a lasting impression. Great care was taken to produce a vintage sound which would make you think you've stepped back to 1972 where on am radio you were could hear the likes of Al Green, James Taylor, Bill Withers, Roberta Flack,and Joni Mitchell, all in the same format. However upon repeated and close listening, you will notice the great care and subtlety embedded throughout the album. What at first appears as light, easy listening unfolds to be something filled with soul, heart and emotion. The songs go from lush to sparse, and each track is imbued with unique touches such a small violin section, or a male quartet, or a mandolin solo. The production is super clean and brings Michael's reedy and plaintive voice straight to the center and captures his essence very nicely. All songs work together to create a cohesive musical statement -- by album's end you really have a sense of Kiwanuka's artistic perspective and what he stands for musically. Home Again is overall very mellow - and can be great background music or just as effective as salve for the heart and for listening to in the quiet hours when the heart is troubled. All and all I am well pleased and look forward to his career.

HASH(0x9cebe864) out of 5 stars Should Be On a "Best of 2012" List July 4 2012
By iameclectic - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Most blogs I've read are describing Michael Kiwanuka's sound and voice as a combination of soul and rootsy folk, and I concur. The opening song on the album didn't really grab me at first. I thought it was going to be another Motown modern wannabe, but hang in there ~ the 2nd song, "I'm Getting Ready" is wonderful and then the 3rd song, "I'll Get Along" sold me on the entire project. I spent the rest of the evening playing acoustic guitar along with Michael Kiwanuka. This album is now on my top 5 "Best of 2012" list. I recommend you take time-out from some of the pop drivel out there and give Michael's "real art" sooth your brain cells. Now back to the guitar. Enjoy the '.

HASH(0x9cebe888) out of 5 stars Good album, but not on vinyl Jan. 22 2013
By Jeremy Storly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: LP Record Verified Purchase
The first time I heard Michael Kiwanuka on Spotify, I was completely engaged. The music is heartfelt and sincere, warm and inviting, even if a little contrived and retro at times (but of course, this is a part of its charm). For this reason, I thought to myself, this would be perfect on vinyl.

Bad choice.

The quality of the LP is noticeably inferior. It is a flimsy record that came warped right out of the sleeve. Even the sound quality is poor. Instead of the warm glow of classic R&B, this sounds like nothing but a scratchy mess. Seriously, did this come off the back of a cereal box?


Great album! Definitely four, if not five stars. It should be perfect on vinyl. Due to inferior manufacturing, it's not. The quality of the vinyl itself is less than one star. I give it three stars simply because it is such a nice recording. Don't even bother with this one on wax.
