Eileen Tackney's "The Return Home" is a call to calm. Its electronic ambience combines with a classical aura and folk instrumentation that gives this album a place in another dimension, where music as a healer, using the quality of music to reflect, reverberate and bring us home to our core. This is music that talks to the soul, comprising mainly 3 and 4 minute tunes that occasionally challenge but always remain powerful in a world where love and peace always win, and working to the principle that 'less is more'.

Hot Press reviewed the album in July 2019. Heres an excerpt of the review: “Telling tales of friendship, family, death, love, mental health struggles and rebirth, there’s much to love on this self-described soundtrack to the singer’s new life. ‘Run’ is a grandiose and gorgeous listen; ‘Porcelain’ is a soaring, stadium-ready slab of synth-y alt pop; and ‘Team’ harks back to his time as ringmaster for Empire Circus. Best of the lot is ‘The Dark Chromatic’: clocking in at nearly eight minutes, and built around a riff reminiscent of ‘Shine On You Crazy Diamond’, this marvellous labyrinth is worth the price of admission alone.”
