  • Summary: The ever-popular contemporary country act returns with their sixth album.

  1. A magisterial album.... If the group has cast off some of the youthful eclecticism, the three Chicks have pulled off something more difficult: refined their trademark sound without allowing it to turn into a copyrighted formula.
  2. An album of stunning simplicity.
  3. This is a pure country album, loaded with fiddles, acoustic guitars, and close harmonies, but retaining the Chicks' signature flair, sense of humor, and personality.... An instant classic.

    An album that continues their mission of yanking bluegrass into the modern era. [#9, p.149]
  5. Home is a raucous acoustic album that mows through bluegrass and traditional country with a vengeance.
  6. Although Home isn't entirely successful, it doesn't get out-and-out boring until the second half, laden with generic songs about believing in love and needing more of it, plus a lullaby that sounds like Don Henley's "The End of the Innocence."
  7. They are incapable of shaping a song, teasing out tension, friction or emotional swoop; they're happy to just play it.

    Ask Entertainment Weekly or CMT this is one of the GREATEST COUNTRY albums ever made. With the genre of Country being invaded by large pop influences this album easily goes down as one that is purely true to the original Bluegrass roots of Country, this album is incredible. Expand
