EDITORS’ NOTES

After two albums that leaned heavily on a more pop-friendly sound, Home brought the Dixie Chicks back to their bluegrass roots. That meant no drums, but plenty of Dobro, banjo, and mandolin. "Truth No. 2," for instance, opens with a ferocious fiddle lick that complements Natalie Maines’ tough, tender voice, while "Long Time Gone" finds the group directing their ferocity at the country-music industry, longing for the days of Merle and Hank over an instrumental that toes the line between barn dance and barn burner.
