  1. The record is patient and delicate, but Chung remains a constant if not aggressive presence within every track, imbuing each with immaculate detail.

    Home is a significant statement from a hugely impressive producer at the peak of his powers.

    Home is an overall softer, lighter affair and one that deserves attention.

    The glinting "Glue" and well-titled "Snap" excepted, they [the nine remaining tracks, all instrumentals] lack the muscle of Chung's earlier releases, but they're more evocative--detailed enough to withstand numerous plays whenever comforting, if downcast and unobtrusive, abstract hip-hop is sought.

    Home's biggest problem is that it can easily drift by almost unnoticed.

    It's frequently beautiful, but perhaps too ephemeral an experience to establish a hold on anyone with more than music on their mind.

    Home feels like an afterthought, the sound of Chung's craft diluted to the point where it's barely there.

    This album just doesn't give off the same vibes as Drift did. I'm not very impressed. It's just another standard, downtempo electronic record.This album just doesn't give off the same vibes as Drift did. I'm not very impressed. It's just another standard, downtempo electronic record.
