Editorial Reviews

The Road Home, the 14th album from American rock band Heart, is a stripped down, 'unplugged' live performance of many of their greatest hits. Performed in their home town of Seattle, The Road Home showcases the talent of Ann & Nancy Wilson, without the 80s production values and loud guitars that marked their early work. That doesn't stop the duo from bringing their big arena hits to the small stage, 'Barracuda,' 'Crazy On You,' 'Dreamboat Annie' and 'All I Wanna Do...' are all here, though recast as intimate acoustic numbers, giving new life to these classic hits. Rounding out a roster of extraordinary music are covers of Elton John's 'Seasons' and Joni Mitchell's 'River.' Produced by legendary Led Zeppelin member John Paul Jones, The Road Home is a must have for Heart fans new and old alike.

Being a longtime Heart fan, the idea of an acoustic album really took my interest. Especially as one can easily bookshelf them as either an 80's "hair band" or as a really heavy 70's arena rock band.
The core (heart) of Heart is truly the talent of Ann and Nancy Wilson, and the acoustic setting for this album truly shows how their voices have improved with time, not needing to be hidden behind 80's production values or overly loud guitars.
The main highlights of the album are the songs that are starkly different from their studio counterparts, especially their 80's stuff. "All I Wanna Do" is performed at a much slower pace, telling the story much more effectively, and giving the song a new lease of life. "These Dreams" is even more enchanting, once again performed a tad slower, giving each ethereal line of the song just that little bit more resonance. "Alone" is "so 1987" and to hear it stripped down like it is here, really sheds new light on the song.
"Barracuda" still rocks, plugged or unplugged!
Finally, the sound quality of this album is superb, audiophiles will have NOTHING to complain about. Crisp, clean guitar sounds....wonderful bass....Obviously they took great care in making this release sound great!

1995 was an annus horribilis. I was unemployed from July and sank into a deep depression. When I saw that Heart had come out with The Road Home, I saw the titles and said to myself, "Big deal, yet another live album!" and never gave it a second thought. Besides, my initial reaction, now since corrected, of course, of 1993's Desire Walks On, was still etched in me. 2003 is looking to be another annus horribilis, but this time, a renewed interest in the Wilson sisters, thanks in large part to Eric Andrews--take a bow :), is trying to fend off my dark demons. Anyway, I just heard The Road Home for the first time this year and was totally blown away at the stripped down renditions of the songs, taken from acoustic concerts recorded 12-16 August 1994 at the Backstage in Seattle, representing a new phase in Heart after the arena rock reputation they achieved in the mid-1980's.
The tempo for "Dreamboat Annie", despite being the Fantasy Child version, mirrors the original version, but then it has that lovely string section and flute in the Reprise version.
I've always wanted to hear "Dog And Butterfly" live and that's next. But the string section of the Seattle Symphony, including a nice oboe, really melted me.
The first new song is the bluesy "(Up On) Cherry Blossom Road", which due to the mandolin, I can imagine appearing on Little Queen. John Paul Jones of Led Zep, produced this album and does mandolin here. Ann introduces him as they launch into "Back To Avalon", which has the same engaging energy as the original despite the lack of electric guitars.
The most noticeably difference in Heart's scaled back music are their renditions of their two #1s and #2, "Alone", "These Dreams", and "All I Wanna Do...

I'll admit it! I LOVE IT!!! I was so completely shocked at this version of Ann and Nancy Wilson in an "Unplugged" style format. I was really skeptical that I'd like the album but being a Heart fan for many years and the fact that I was given this album as a gift, I opted to give it a GOOD listen before passing judgement. So, after repeated listenings, I am so thankful now that I'm not sure I can effectively express it. Suffice it to say that when I am in the mood for Heart now, THIS IS THE FIRST ONE I REACH FOR!

I don't usually like live albums but this is an Exception To Every Rule! This is not just a re-hash of their catalogue done live. This is an intimate, well executed, and beautifully arranged re-visit to some old friends with some new twists and a few new friends, along the way. The inclusion of "Cherry Blossom Road" & "Seasons" is such a fine treat and both songs are welcome editions to Heart's already incredible catalogue.

I am in love with Heart all over again! Especially the new acoustic arrangements of "Alone" and "Crazy On You". I finally went to visit another friend and he had the video of this LP! WOW!! This is one of the best things to come out of Heart since the inception of their career! The fact that there is an exceptional line up of "friends" to help out on this offering, starting with John Paul Jones (of Led Zepplin fame) who sits in with them on this set of songs among others is a special treat too! Don't miss this beat of Heart!

Sit back, relax and enjoy.

P.S. If you liked this Unplugged Version of Heart....check out "Isle of View" The Pretenders

Typically fans of Heart fall into one of two camps, `70s album rock fans, or `80s Power ballad fans. I am a huge fan of the former, and a fan with less fanaticism about the latter. But I also fall into a third category as a huge fan of the more acoustic pieces. Love Alive, Dreamboat Annie (the song), Dream of the Archer, etc are some of my very favorites from what is probably my very favorite band.

I still recall when I saw Heart on their first headline tour supporting "Dreamboat Annie", and the first time Ann played a bar on the flute, I was hers for life. During that show which was curiously opened by a pop group (Player.. "Baby Come Back"), the crowd was in a very mellow mood, wanting to sit on the floor and wave the lighters. Ann was kind of befuddled about the reaction, and Said "Wow you guys really like the quiet stuff; Someday we'll come back and play a show like that... But tonight we're gonna ROCK & ROLL!

To this day, it was one of the best shows I ever saw. But I still am waiting for that show. I wish I would have been in the club where "The Road Home" was recorded, because it is the show I always wanted to see. These songs are performed largely acoustic, give or take, and have a very intimate feel. A lot of performers use the line Ann does in this set of "Welcome to our Living Room", but it really has that feel. The versions on this song you can readily imagine being at one of the sister's houses and watching a jam session like this from them and a few friends.

This is definitely a CD every Heart fan should own, but I think it is an album anyone would enjoy would enjoy, even if they didn't know they were fans yet.
