The energetic frantic sound continues with Run Away which feels to emphasize the electronic work a bit more as well. If the first track was something like Fall Out Boy, Run Away feels more like Mayday Parade. Blue Sky Gray does feel a bit generic and a tad bit like easycore until it hits the straight pop choruses. The title track Where The Heart Was goes full on dance party with the electronics taking front stage. It's a lot of fun and something other bands seem to miss. Don't Say Anything which also continues the trend of sounding like big band mixed with post hardcore, probably has my favorite vocal delivery and chorus. It feels upbeat and passive aggressive at the same time. The closing track Sayonara is the lighter ballad and really shows off the range of the vocalist. It's more serious in tone overall and softer but it's a nice way to close things out.
Home Sweet Home's Where The Heart Was manages to feel nostalgic, fresh, and progressive all at the same time. It blends in elements of a lot of genres and manages to have fun with it. Something a lot of bands especially in the post hardcore arena miss is just having a good time with things and not being so serious. It's a great album for the summer and feels like a refreshing glass of iced tea on a hot day. This may only be a six song EP but there's a ton to work with and like. Home Sweet Home hit a home run with this.
