    “Home” is bookended with a musical tactic that is both perfect and obvious: cantos sung by the Danish National Girls’ Choir. ... But as with everything Rhye, it’s all in service of Milosh’s crystalline voice.

    A record that allows itself space to shfit and evolve, ‘Home’ is both airy and immersed in strong roots. A Canadian in Los Angeles, Rhye is proof that ‘Home’ is where the heart is.

    This being the Rhye album with the most layers, Milosh was wise to employ the brilliant Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails, the Killers) as mixing engineer. Every change pays off.

    While Home lacks the consistency of previous records, it makes a strong case for Rhye as a pop star waiting in the wings, à la the Weeknd, thanks to a voice versatile enough to complement any instrumental choice. Four albums in, Rhye has finally begun to branch out, and not a moment too soon.

    Home is an ambitious effort and contains some of the most exciting music released by Rhye. There are disappointments on the album, but they are equaled, if not exceeded, by the number of exciting successes on the album.

    For the most part, Milosh goes for mood over hooks, but the sultry "Helpless" seductively sports both. [Feb 2021, p.32]

    Home is as challenging as it is comforting. [Mar 2021, p.85]

    The critics score average spot on I believe. Maybe he should stop pumping out albums every year or every other year and let his music matureThe critics score average spot on I believe. Maybe he should stop pumping out albums every year or every other year and let his music mature even more for some time. It's still good, but it's not a progression. It's hanging on the threshold.

    This album is just a two to three songs cut into 13 pieces to form an album. All were the same. Not impressed.
