As with previous singles from Dori Freeman's upcoming album, "Almost Home" just sounds slightly off. Of course, I mean that in the best possible way. "Almost Home" is a great country/Americana song, but it's definitely not like typical country although it does have all the elements. Freeman's voice is stunning, and has just the right country tinge to it so make it country, but it wavers just a bit too much to be country. And then there's the guitar. Sure, there's twang and some jangle to it, but it's an otherworldly jangle. Despite being sunny, "Almost Home" has some darkness and dinge to it as well. This is why you're going to need to listen to it.
