CRITIC REVIEWS

Northern Transmissions

Recorded mostly at this home studio, Home, is a perfect summation of how Rhye feels at this point in his life. At his creative centre, positive and bright, just a little bit sexy but ethereal in all the right places.

The Independent

Milosh’s Home is a welcome respite from reality and a shelter to hole up in for a while.

80
Clash

A record that allows itself space to shfit and evolve, ‘Home’ is both airy and immersed in strong roots.

80
AllMusic

This being the Rhye album with the most layers, Milosh was wise to employ the brilliant Alan Moulder as mixing engineer. Every change pays off.

70
Gigwise

Despite all its ornaments, the album never loses its sense of soothing minimalism.

70
Uncut

For the most part, Milosh goes for mood over hooks, but the sultry “Helpless” seductively sports both.

Exclaim!

While Home lacks the consistency of previous records, it makes a strong case for Rhye as a pop star waiting in the wings, à la the Weeknd, thanks to a voice versatile enough to complement any instrumental choice.

70
PopMatters

Home is an ambitious effort and contains some of the most exciting music released by Rhye.

70
Spill Magazine

With Home, it’s clear Milosh has found the sweet spot with his brand of alternative pop.

Rolling Stone
Mike Milosh's third album is a chill art-disco outing inspired by the multi-instrumentalist's safe space and new relationship; his whispery falsetto and meditative grooves will draw you in.

Pitchfork

Rhye leader Michael Milosh remains king of the most respectable horny music possible. His new album testifies to those talents without calling too much attention to itself.

65
Spectrum Culture

On his fourth outing under the Rhye banner, Mike Milosh undoes his artistic progress and settles for something far less interesting than growth: a musical background for glamorous sex.

Beats Per Minute
Rhye’s music, while bountiful with beauty, texture, sensuality, and grace, is also pretty nondescript much of the time. If not for Milosh’s velvety coo of a voice the songs here would mostly fade into the background – and they almost do anyway.

Mojo

Home is as challenging as it is comforting.

The Forty-Five

‘Home’ has the personality of somebody tempted by the call of the dancefloor – before deciding to stay home to Spotify and chill.

on their fourth album ‘home’, rhye create a dreamy collection of alternative r&b.

rhye’s latest effort is comforting music with a warm, welcoming feeling. this project is full of love songs and relaxing music.

for some background, Milosh is the main member of Rhye. he produced the entire album, wrote the entire album, sung lead vocals on 11/13 tracks, and programmed/played the drums throughout. he also organized most of the piano/keyboard/synth parts. Milosh is an ... read more

Home takes us to the dancefloor for a moment and it feels good, but it's not convincing enough to make us come back often. Apart from a few solid and catchy passages, Milosh struggles to give the depth we find in his previous projects.

The lonely and romantic Mike Milosh, who has been the only member of Rhye for 4 years now since the departure of the instrumentalist Robin Hannibal, is now alone in a new stage where the road is more than ever winding. Eleven years ago, Milosh and Hannibal ... read more

Do you know when you finish listening to an album and can't remember any element of it, when it sounds completely forgettable? That is the case here.

All the tracks on the disc sound incredibly equal, without any difference, it's all extremely similar. Not satisfied with that, the record goes on longer than necessary.

It sounds like another empty record with psychedelic influences, and that voice, that damn Pseudo falsetto voice that seems to have become a trend in the industry, but that ... read more
