The eighth studio long player from the veteran Lone Star State alt-rockers, Home finds Blue October offering up a positive spin on their frequently dark blend of melodic alt-rock and angsty post-grunge. Notoriously troubled frontman Justin Furstenfeld, now four years sober, has crafted the group's most inspiring and life-affirming collection of songs to date. Propelled by the soaring, chart-topping title cut, Home wasted little time ascending to the top of Billboard charts, debuting at number one on the Alternative Albums Chart, number one on the Independent Albums Chart, and number five on the Billboard 200. ~ James Christopher Monger
