Barnes & Noble - Jon Dolan
The second album by the only band to perform on both the Warped Tour and at Woodstock '99 is rife with wicked, raw, hip-hop-influenced grunge-punk that satisfies without offering too many musical surprises. Overheated overdrive guitars are girded by a heavy-handed punk-funk fury that'll have a nation of testosterone-tweaked teens throwing their hands in the air and waving 'em like they just don't care. Singer Lajon Witherspoon gives new meaning to the phrase, "Shit, dude, lighten up," as he fires off nihilistic, proto-psycho songs like "Reconnect."

Barnes & Noble - Jon Dolan
The second album by the only band to perform on both the Warped Tour and at Woodstock '99 is rife with wicked, raw, hip-hop-influenced grunge-punk that satisfies without offering too many musical surprises. Overheated overdrive guitars are girded by a heavy-handed punk-funk fury that'll have a nation of testosterone-tweaked teens throwing their hands in the air and waving 'em like they just don't care. Singer Lajon Witherspoon gives new meaning to the phrase, "Shit, dude, lighten up," as he fires off nihilistic, proto-psycho songs like "Reconnect." Like Limp Bizkit's SIGNIFICANT OTHER, this music derives its dramatic intensity from depicting the bipolar angst of life in teenage wasteland, using overlapping vocals to suggest a loner on the edge hearing voices in his head and moving from Chili Peppers-style funk-rock verses to explosive hip-hop-rock choruses. Witherspoon is certainly a muscular, if relatively samey, rapper-moaner, but it's his jarringly sweet singing on the downright poppy "Licking Cream" leavened by the backing vocals of Skunk Anansie singer Skin that saves the record from sounding repetitious. It's a nice change of pace for an album that overall is about as tight and tough as punkified skate-metal gets.
All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
All too often, bands that have shown as much promise as Sevendust did on its self-titled debut album which went gold have fallen prey to the dreaded sophomore curse and failed to make good on that promise. But there are no signs of a sophomore slump on Sevendust's second album, Home, which like its predecessor, is as melodic as it is angry and brutally heavy. Melody isn't simply an afterthought on this CD -- it's an integral part of the band's sound, and it complements the intensity and forcefulness of songs like "Denial," "Feel So," and "Crumpled." Many of the influences heard on Sevendust are also heard on Home -- the Atlantans still show an appreciation of artists ranging from Living Colour and Nirvana to Anthrax, Metallica, and Faith No More. But Sevendust is quite recognizable itself, and it had become a major player in the alternative metal world of the late '90s. Those who savored Sevendust's first album won't find Home to be the least bit disappointing.

    An alt/metal classic

    Overall this is one of the best Cd's of the late 90's , in any genre . 20 years from now people will still be cranking this . It is a classic . It is a little repetitious from a chord structure point of view , but other than that , it is consistantly good all the way through .

    good

    I bought animosity and liked it so much that I had to buy this CD. This CD is really good. The best songs are waffle, home, denial, and licking cream.

    If I could give it 10 stars, I would!

    ''Home'' has the same root intensity of their first album, but their sophmore effort goes far beyond their self-titled record (which I loved!). If you like melodic tunes, you should get the album for songs like ''Feel So'', ''Licking Cream'', and ''Reconnect''. If you like hard and heavy songs, then try ''Rumble Fish'' and ''Home''. If you like heavy and emotion-filled songs, then ''Denial'', ''Headtrip'', and ''Waffle'' will make you feel things you haven't felt before! BUY THIS ALBUM!!! You won't regret it!

    Not what I expected

    I bought the album because I heard the song Denial which is an excellent song. I'm glad that I have denia on CD but not the rest of the album. I was very disapointed. I thought the music was stuck somewhere in between Korn and 80's hair metal. The songs where weak and repititous. Sorry guys go back to the drawing board.
