What's the story?

"THIS IS HOME" is one of the few non-instrumental songs featured on the soundtrack from The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (it played during the end credits). This is a rock ballad.

Is it any good?


This single starts with a simple piano and slowly adds in the rest of the instruments' sounds to produce a feel-good rock ballad that builds momentum through the chorus. The song itself is just OK -- a bit generic and probably needs the visual impact of the movie to elevate it.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the Disney empire. How effective is their marketing? Why do you think they're such a tight-knit company? Why would a non-Disney artist want to be a part of a Disney project?
