There's a Home is the 1995 debut of the Las Vegas alternative, progressive rock band I Am and contains thirteen tracks. The album was the only commercial release of I Am, which disbanded later that year. The album feature Greg Greer on vocals, Rod Arnett on bass, Dan Ryan on guitar, and video game music composer Frank Klepacki on drums.[1] The album draws influences from Tool and Soundgarden, which are thanked in liner notes.[2] The thirteenth song is not listed on the album; on this track, a somber man recites what are apparently self-help instructions and a humorous mantra—"the louder the apartment is, the happier I will be."[2]

The song Destructible Times was used the same year in the video game Command & Conquer, specifically in the credits for the Brotherhood of Nod. Developers at Westwood Studios specifically requested the song because it "reflected the war aspect and bad-ass vibe of Nod's side."[3] The band was once recorded live while performing this song. EA is currently being sued by the artist for copyright violation.[4] It was the first commercial album Klepacki's playing appeared on; he wrote several songs for the band. The album was recorded and engineered by Brett Hansen as Audio Art studios, and mastered by Brian Hamilton at Bernie Grundman Studios. Michael Lohr photographed the band.[2] Though disbanded in 1995, Klepacki continues to support the band's music, offering There's a Home for sale on his website along with a t-shirt referencing Destructible Times.[5]
