Seizing the opportunity for a comeback opened by his daughter's success as Hannah Montana — and his accompanying role as Hannah's father — Billy Ray Cyrus gives it his all on Home at Last, his tenth solo album but the first one to really seem to count since the glory days of "Achy Breaky Heart." Smartly, he avoids any boot-scooting shuffles and pitches the record directly toward the housewives who danced the night away to his big hit and now raise daughters who watch Hannah Montana. This means there's not much of the lean country that marked his very good 2006 set Wanna Be Your Joe but instead a lot of earnest midtempo tunes and ballads, along with covers of such standards as "Brown Eyed Girl" and "You've Got a Friend." It's modern-day adult contemporary music, but it's not given the drippy, saccharine, and synthesized arrangements that made AC music stultifying in the late '90s. Instead, it's stripped-down and direct, never sounding too slick but never sounding like something that could be mistaken for anything other than commercial adult pop, either. If the album suffers a little bit from a sense of sleepy sameness — it sure could use more numbers like the working-class anthem "The Buffalo" or the mildly driving anthemic rocker "You Can't Lose Me" — on a track-by-track basis, it's sturdy and Cyrus is always likeable, never pushing too hard and always sounding like a warmer, more genuine singer than he did at the peak of his fame in 1992. Make no mistake about it, Home at Last is as safe and comforting as its title suggests (which may indeed be a let-down for those that liked the sly, wily nature of Wanna Be Your Joe), but it's to Cyrus' credit that he pulls it off like an old pro, which is what makes this not only a handsome commercial comeback but a deserved one. [A bonus track edition of the album was issued in 2007.]
Billy Ray's done it again
It's the best I've heard in a very long time. He sings from the heart.
BUY THIS ALBUM
This album is awesome, I would put it right up there with the most recent Brad Paisley/Keith Urban/Tim Mcgraw offerings. Good covers, along with good songs that sound like they come from the heart. Ready, Set, Don't Go is fantastic, put it on the list of wedding songs. Look out Carrie Underwood/Taylor Swift, If Miley can sing like that now on the Ready, Set, Don't Go bonus track....just imagine what we have to look forward too when Hannah Montana ends and she gets serious about a career in country.
this is a great album... my favourite song is ready set dont go featuring miley cyrus.. its a touching song about a father and daughter relationship. i think that its so sweet that billy ray wrote that song for miley the day she left for california. its a great song, and it was sang amazing by both of them on dancing with the stars <3
