  • Montgomery stays in familiar, romantic ballad territory on HOME TO YOU, a CD's worth of songs full of swooning devotion and desire. The best of these are the lovely title track, a song about how comforting it is to have someone you love waiting for you at home, and "Holding An Amazing Love," which narrates the emotions of a blue-collar guy who thinks he doesn't deserve his woman's love. Another standout is the mid-tempo, melodic "You Are," a sure-to-please number in which the narrator insists his feelings are deeper than his lover realizes.
  • Even when Montgomery kicks it up a notch, as he does on the energetic "Love Made Me Do It," and the turbo-charged "Hello L-O-V-E," he stays firmly on the topic of romance. The one exception is the closing track, "Nothing Catches Jesus By Surprise," one of two songs on HOME TO YOU co-written by Waylon Jennings. This introspective cut seems to be the musings of the male half of a longtime couple, but the lyrics are impressionistic enough to introduce an element of ambiguity. It's an unusual choice of material, but one that adds a bit of variety to HOME TO YOU's love-fest.
