The Road Home

by Heart
The Road Home by Heart
Released: Aug 1995
Label: Capitol Records
Much in the vein of Johnny Cash's American Recordings released the year before, The Road Home is Ann and Nancy Wilson re-embracing their baroque-folk roots. It's a refreshing change of pace, considering Heart had hit both an artistic and commercial brick wall with the power-ballad formula that made them MTV darlings the previous decade. With production aid from Zep legend John Paul Jones, the sisters re-imagine just about every one of their big hits, from "Crazy on You" and "Barracuda" to "Alone" and "These Dreams." The only egregious omission is the amazing "Magic Man" -- why, Heart, why?
