Product Description

Amazon.ca

Home wasn't a place Sevendust saw much of following the 1997 release of their self-titled debut. The Atlanta-bred quintet spent nearly two years on the road, eventually earning gold status for Sevendust. The result is a band that is tight, precise, and finely honed. The songs on Home, however, while boasting a heavy and headbanging coolness like the Deftones with a touch of Faith No More funkiness, tend toward the unremarkable and redundant. The lack of hooks aside, Home still sounds excellent, thanks to producer Toby Wright (Fishbone, Korn), who ably captured the band's ample instrumental and vocal talent. Still, most listeners would be hard-pressed to sing along--or describe the difference between--"Home," "Denial," and several of the other aggro, riff-based songs on Home. While vocalist Lajon Witherspoon is powerful and melodic and writes thoughtful, personal lyrics, a welcome diversion is the addition of Skunk Anansie singer Skin on "Licking Cream," her wailing wakes (and shakes!) up the song and the record. It may be where their hearts are, but Home won't make Sevendust household names. Katherine Turman

To be honest-Sevendust's debut didn't impress me.My whole view of the band changed once "Denial" hit the airwaves and I bought "Home".I dare you to find me a better so called "new metal" album.
1. Home 10/10 the choppy riffs are just the start of great things to come
2. Denial 20/10 the best sevendust song ever, i can listen to this all day and night and never get tired it's just amazing
3. Headtrip 15/10 the second best Sevendust song ever very aggressive and brilliantly crafted
4. Insecure 10/10 even this little 1 minute guitar lead in is amazing
5. Reconnect 9/10 i usually skip reconnect to get to the next couple of tracks but still a great song
6. Waffle 10/10 good, old fashioned sevendust here folks-the second single off the album which didn't see as much airplay as Denial
7. Rumble Fish 10/10 Sevendust really release some aggression here and throw in some of the best chopped up guitar patterns ever
8. Licking Cream 12/10 the third best Sevendust song ever I can't get tired of this one-the whole Lajon and Skin (Skunk Anansie) combo is amazing-definitely worth your time
9. Grasp 9/10 good song, but overlooked
10. Crumbled 10/10 awesome track i love how the bass really stand out
11. Feel So 9/10 good effort but usually i'll pass
12. Grasshopper 10/10 haha I like the little 8 second cowboy thing
13. Bender 10/10 amazing combo of Chino (Deftones) and Lajon rock out the end of the album-a definite stand out track
I praise Sevendust for their work on this album.Definitely in my Top 5 albums of all time.Well done!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Self-titled or the newer Animosity June 14 2003
By Beasly
Format:Audio CD
I've been a Sevendust fan for 3 or so years after discovering their Self-titled first album. The raw guitars juxtaposed with Lajon's soulful voice were amazing. However, Home leaves much to be desired, with clone songs that I can barely tell apart and can't even keep straight in my head. The cd starts out mediocre with the track Home, which isn't that interesting. The lyric "I'm home, leave it to me....from left to right" strikes me as comical and I have a hard time taking it seriously or even understanding what the chorus is trying to say. Then the hard-hitting single Denial is next, which is more talent-driven, but the album quickly fizzles out with Headtrip, which sounds dull and uninspired. Insecure is an almost eery guitar solo, which happens to be my favorite part of the whole cd, actually, then it breaks into Reconnect, which has some interesting lyrics and I think it is a good song overall, followed by Waffle, which is a thoughtful song in which Lajon really bares his soul and his smooth vocals. But the rest of the songs on the cd leave much to be desired. Rumble Fish, Grasp, Crumbled, Feel So, and Bender sound like they were written in two minutes on the way to the studio, and I have a hard time telling the songs apart because of the almost uniform guitar riffs. With so little going on in these tracks except similar guitar riffs and loud, shouting vocals, it's easy to see why I dislike most of these songs. However, Licking Cream is a good song, with a cameo by Skin, formerly of Skunk Anansie. Her voice adds much to the song and the lyrics are cryptic and interesting. Only when the distorted guitars give way to quieter moments and soft guitars do we get blips of Sevendust's creative potential.
As a whole, I think it was half good, half uninspired and garbage.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dammit May 20 2003
By Stevox
Format:Audio CD
A classic case of the sophmore jinx. When Sevendust's self titled debut hit stores, circa 1997, it was one of the most diverse hard hitting hard rock collections of the time. Sevendust was quickly (and deservedly so) given awards for hard rock collection of the year and new band of the year. People wondered how they could match their intensity on the second disc. And the answer was, they couldn't. Sevendust just didn't deliver with this one. Every time in the cd, where it starts to get going and you think its good, it just stops. The singles are good ("Denial" and "Waffle"), as most singles are, but most of this cd is just not worth it. The guitar riffs sound the same on almost every song, and The vocals are pretty weak. The Discs best track is laced with vocals from Chino Moreno of the Deftones, one of the best bands ever. (track 13, Bender). But not even Chino's stellar performance can pull this cd out of the gutter. Either pick up the s/t or their newest Animosity, the best of the three in my opinion. Sevendust still remains one of my favorite bands. They were not thrown off by the sophmore jinx and came back with a strong 3rd album. A Rarity. I expect alot from this band in the future. But unless ur a hardcore fan, avoid this cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sevendust: The Evolution and a New Beginning April 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
In comparison to the 1997 debut, and the most recent Animosity, Home has a very different style to it. In fact, I'd have to say that this should be noted as THE true evolution of Sevendust. It's the heaviest record the band's put out, and the tracks have their own special feel to them. I know some people think this is either the band's best album, or their worst, but I'm not going to say which is the better choice (they all deserve a 5 out of 5). Anyways, these are my ratings of each song.
1. "Home" - A heavy song with killer bass, vocals are loud and lyrics are excellent! 5/5
2. "Denial" - The first single and a perfect showcase for the entire album. Memorable, catchy, and raw. 5/5
3. "Headtrip" - Another good song. But I'm not really into the jazzy style. It is essential to the album though, as it adds diversity. 4/5
4. "Insecure" - Just a guitar solo, but not very long. 1.5/5
5. "Reconnect" - Yet another heavy song, but not very catchy. 3/5
6. "Waffle" - Melodic, heavy, and soulful. Lajon really shows us just how good of a singer he is. 5/5
7. "Rumble Fish" - This song is really cool in its own right. But it gets kind of shaky at points. 4/5
8. "Licking Cream" - THE ABSOLUTE BEST SONG ON THE WHOLE ALBUM!!!
Maybe even the best 'Dust song ever! It seems really R&B inspired, and the vocals are like butter. There's also a special appearance (and some kickass singing) by Skin of Skunk Anansie. 5.5/5
9. "Grasp" - A really good song, but a little misplaced. It seems like a knockoff of "Licking Cream", which I guess isn't bad. 4/5
10. "Crumbled" and 11. "Feel So" - Crumbled is a song I don't like (2/5), but "Feel So" is decent (3/5).
12. "Grasshopper" - A silly interruption with bassist Vince doin' some weird stuff. 2/5
13.
