Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
On The Road Home, Heart re-records some of their biggest hits acoustically live in concert. It's interesting to hear these arena rock and AOR standards -- including "Barracuda," "Crazy on You," "Dreamboat Annie," and "All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You" -- recast as intimate numbers; Heart manages to find new layers in all of these warhorses, partially due to the sublime production of John Paul Jones. The result is Heart's best album in years -- the old material sounds more alive than anything they have written in a decade.

    Truly a great live acoustic album

    In a hushed club in their hometown of Seattle, this band played a stunning acoustic set of their popular songs plus a few covers. The bright spots here are ''Alone'', ''Crazy On You'', and ''These Dreams''. The standout track though is their #1 ''All I Wanna Do is Make Love To You'' which has been slowed down and stripped to it's bare essentials...the guitar and Ann's voice and it works wonders for the song. The singer's emotions come across much better then it did in the loud, sonic studio version which Ann finally admits in the sleeve interview that she ''didn't like all that much'' as she felt it stood for the wrong things. All in all...one of the best live ablums I've ever listened to.
