Fans of the Dixie Chicks' blockbuster albums Wide Open Spaces and Fly, prepare to be whisked to new places by Home. The title is a model of truth in advertising: Pre-megastardom, the Chicks rooted their sound in acoustic music -- bluegrass, traditional country, and folk -- and that's what their first album in three years delivers. But that's only half the story. The big news on '99's Fly was Natalie Maines and her booming voice, blues-based on big ballads and triumphant on up-tempo songs.

Fans of the Dixie Chicks' blockbuster albums Wide Open Spaces and Fly, prepare to be whisked to new places by Home. The title is a model of truth in advertising: Pre-megastardom, the Chicks rooted their sound in acoustic music -- bluegrass, traditional country, and folk -- and that's what their first album in three years delivers. But that's only half the story. The big news on '99's Fly was Natalie Maines and her booming voice, blues-based on big ballads and triumphant on up-tempo songs. She boasts some equally great performances here, notably a taut, beautifully rendered treatment of Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide" -- with its message of self-empowerment it could be read as a statement of purpose by the Chicks, whose recent label dispute seems to have energized and refined their singular musical vision. But Maines also cedes to some captivating ensemble singing on tunes such as the riveting "Travelin' Soldier," Bruce Robison's tale of love between a soldier and the girl he left behind, fleshed out by a compelling fiddles-guitar-snare drum arrangement and Maines's startling vocal solo. And that's what's so sweet about this Home. It's got the songs -- by Robison, Patty Griffin, Tim O'Brien, Darrell Scott the hit single "Long Time Gone," a sharp, wry barb aimed at country radio's restrictive programming tactics: "They got money but they don't have Cash", and the Chicks themselves, among others -- and a warm, distinctly non-rock production from Lloyd Maines, which all adds up to an absolute winner. Home sounds great now, in the glow of the resurgence of all things acoustic and bluegrass. But it's only going to improve with age. Kinda like the ever-evolving Chicks themselves.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Delivering a successor to their breakthrough smash Wide Open Spaces was easy -- Fly followed a year afterward, sounding sleek and satisfying. Following that album turned out to be a little more difficult for the Dixie Chicks, not least because they were involved in an ugly battle with their record company over royalties. While they were away, country radio grew stricter, but there were undercurrents of change, particularly in the grassroots success of the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack. The Dixie Chicks always had deep country roots, but it was entirely conceivable that they could have chosen the pop route, since it's always the safest bet for established stars to follow the mainstream -- especially after they have been away for a while. Fortunately, one thing this trio has never been is predictable, and they were emboldened by their successful battle with the label, along with the O Brother, leading to the stunner that is Home, their sixth album. There may be a Stevie Nicks cover here, but there are no concessions to pop anywhere; there are hardly any electric guitars, actually. 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. It's a vibrant, quirky, heartfelt record that finds the group investing as much in a funny, rollicking number like "White Trash Wedding" or something as sadly sweet as "Godspeed Sweet Dreams." But the key to the album is that, as they so brilliantly put it on the wonderful opener, "Long Time Gone," they recognize many modern country singers "sound tired but they don't sound Haggard" and "have money but they don't have Cash" -- and this is a sentiment that doesn't just apply to those riding the charts, but to the po-faced alt-country contenders who are too serious to have fun. They deftly balance modern attitudes with classic instrumentation, all built on terrific songwriting, winding up with an album that feels purer than anything on the charts, yet much livelier and genuine than alt-country. This is what country music in 2002 should sound like. With Home, the Dixie Chicks illustrate that country music should be simple but adventurous, sincere but fun. In doing so, they've delivered not just their best album, but what's arguably the best country album yet released in the 2000s. Needless to say, an instant classic.

    Great Dixie Chicks album

    At first listen, you'll see how the chicks went back to their original country style.
    "Fly" was a step in a different direction with mixed results. It didn't sound as country as their first album "Wide Open Spaces." "Home" is a great return to country from them. There are no percussion through the entire album. It's a mix of contemporary country and old bluegrass music. The standout tracks are the remake of Stevie Nicks "Landslide", "More Love" and "Travelin Soldier."

    The Chicks Rule!

    This texan trio have such great singing. What I love the most is their own version of Landslide. It sounds charming compared to the Smashing Pumpkins' version and the original which is Fleetwood Mac's. I always listen to it when I feel lonely. It's just the greatest from the three.

    The best DCX album ever!!!

    This is by far the best album of the Dixie Chicks. The CD has a bunch of different songs that really made the Dixie Chicks hit the big time. Unfortuneatly, that wouldn't last too long because of what Natalie said, but I'll tell you what, this is still a great CD. BUY BUY BUY

    Disregarding all Politics...

    Home is a great country record. I had to go out on a limb here and go against everything I believe in to buy it, but at least I'll be the bigger person - separating politics and music - as it should be.

    Our new Led Zeppilen

    I think Natilie is one of the best female singer our country has seen in a while. I think the chick's new album defined what the music industry needs to look at...talent.

    Way to go Chicks!!!!

    I bought the the CD the other by the Dixie Chicks called "Home", I have to say what a totally different sound to there first two albums. It is so great how they take the bluegrass sound, and take it to a whole new level. I have to say that the songs on the album is totally great. My favorite songs on the albums are "Travelin Soldier", Landslide, and Long Time Gone. This is a must have CD to your music collection.

    HERE'S TO THE BEST COUNTRY HAS TO OFFER--EVER!!

    If you thought that Stevie Nicks' "Landslide" was a song that could NEVER be reinterperreted, oh ye of little faith!! Mix The Dixie Chick's rendition with the infectious, foot-stomping, sing out loud (really loudly!!) tune "Long Time Gone," the sweet, sad, time-warp masterpiece of "Travelin' Soldier," and the heartfelt sentimentality of a parent's deep love for their child in "Godspeed," and you have found the most perfect album of the last decade!! These Texas gals are RED HOT--and their music and voices deal with every spectrum of human emotion with equal precision. THIS IS A KEEPER CD THAT, ONEDAY, IN THE FARAWAY FUTURE, I KNOW I SHALL BE SHARING WITH MY GRANDCHILDREN!! ORDER IT TODAY---CHERISH IT FOREVER!!!

    Free Speech Rocks!

    I have no idea what they sound like, and I really can't stomach country music. But I'm going to go out and buy all their records anyhow, to show my support. I usually don't pay much heed to celebrity activists; the self-importance and self-righteousness is usually just too much to bear. However, there was something almost -- dare I say -- heroic about the way the Dixie Chicks made their impromptu anti-war statements. Let's hope they don't get cold feet and backpedal, as they now seem almost prepared to do.

    Sing-Out-Loud, Heart Happy Music

    Natalie Maines is incredible, this band is incredible. The writing is fabulous. I have never bought a country album before and just bought this CD after I saw them perform Landslide at the Grammy's. I am a marathoner and I listen to this CD over and over and over again, singing out loud on the city streets and feeling happy! I am going to buy their previous CDs too and I bought a copy of Home for my Dad. Dixie Chicks you are talented! Awesome stuff!

    DIXIE CHICKS RULE!!

    I heard them before on our Pop radio channel, but never before thought of buying their CD. I'm so very PROUD of them! I've ordered three, and am encouraging my friends to do the same. These women have guts, talent, beauty and intelligence. They're my idols! True Americans, they idealize what Southern women like me should be!

    The Dixie Chicks Did It Again.

    I think the dixie chicks are totally amazing with their music, how they can take bluegrass and blend it in with the country side and make this amazingly beautiful sounding music.I like country and bluegrass and to have them together is great. As I listen to these songs I can feel the real emotion and time that they put into it.These songs take me away to a place where all is pleasent. I have bought two copies of this CD. One for work and one for home.I believe it is most definately their best album.

    A "Home" Run!!!

    I have been a fan of the Dixie Chicks since the beginning and I eagerly awaited the release of their newest album. I was not disappointed. This CD is great. The first single "Long Time Gone" is classic Dixie Chicks with the tongue-in-cheek lyrics and Natalie Maines' awesome voice. And the remake of "Landslide" has been bringing the Chicks deserved crossover success. I never thought it would be possible for someone to remake the song because of Fleetwood Mac's original and Stevie Nicks' voice. But the Dixie Chicks more than do justice to this classic. But my favorite tracks on the CD are probably "Truth No. 2" and "Travelin' Soldier." I love the combination of all three voices on these songs. For sheer laughs "White Trash Wedding" is another great track among many. Their fans will definitely not be disappointed with the long wait for this CD and new fans will discover why they have been so popular after their first two albums.

    They nailed it!

    Everything about this CD is great. Just when Country Music was getting that 'it all sounds alike' sound, the Dixie Chicks have gone HOME to their roots and latched on to the Blue Grass/New Grass sound. The quality of the music, production, -- even the packaging says they wanted to do this right.
