A critic at the web site No Depression wrote, "There are some albums that are so sonically gorgeous, they sound as if the music has arrived from another plane; the players are so connected to each other, weaving their own parts so tightly together, the sound encloses you in its warmth and beauty…The twelve songs on Coming Home display the elegance, polished style, and supple songwriting of a group that's been playing together for years…Every song on Coming Home is a treasure."
