Album Review: "Home" by Rhye (7/10)

Concord Distribution

Producers: Various

If you’ve listened to Rhye, you’re familiar with Michael Milosh’s sultry vocals, often heard ascending over an ethereal, R&B groove. Home is no different, but this time, Rhye has expanded their universe to include the Danish National Girls’ Choir, bookending the album with chamber-like harmonies. “Come in Closer” sets the tone for the whole album, displaying an unusual, yet natural marriage between orchestra and modern synth. Although, many of the tracks lack melodic distinction, they succeed in conveying a unified mood that is simultaneously haunting and familiar, engaging yet meditative.
