  1. 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.
  2. Home is a definite top pick for 2002, and certainly kicked country music in its ass once again when it needed it the most.
  3. They are incapable of shaping a song, teasing out tension, friction or emotional swoop; they're happy to just play it.
  4. 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.

    An album that continues their mission of yanking bluegrass into the modern era. [#9, p.149]
  6. An album of stunning simplicity.
  7. 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."
  8. Home is a raucous acoustic album that mows through bluegrass and traditional country with a vengeance.

    I love the Dixie Chicks! My all time favorite song is Landslide, I never liked the Stevie Nicks version of Landslide it was too slow and dullI love the Dixie Chicks! My all time favorite song is Landslide, I never liked the Stevie Nicks version of Landslide it was too slow and dull but Dixie Chicks remade Landslide into a hit, this song is so addicting and I love everything about the Dixie Chicks version of Landslide, great guitar work, great vocals, and it's an upbeat catchy song that never gets old. I haven't listened to any of the songs on the album yet besides Landslide because it's so addicting to listen to.

    I highly recommend this album.

    Ask Entertainment Weekly or CMT this is one of the GREATEST COUNTRY albums ever made. With the genre of Country being invaded by large popAsk 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.
