Conclusion

Pro-social Content

A young mother who left an alcoholic (perhaps even abusive) partner asks God for forgiveness and praises the man for reportedly turning his life around (“Humble Me”). Love songs seek clarity in romantic relationships (“What Am I to You?,” “Be Here to Love Me”), wish to deepen commitment (“The Long Way Home”) or reminisce fondly about a past love (“Don’t Miss You at All”). On “Toes,” Jones seems to regret seasons of indecisiveness in her life.

Objectionable Content

Minor. “Be Here to Love Me” mentions “the warm glow of wine.” Jones lingers in an unhealthy relationship, confessing, “I try to quit you but I’m too weak ... I’m your slave whenever you call”(“In the Morning”). Several cuts allude to intimacy without a clear marital context.

Summary Advisory

The 23-year-old’s last disc won eight Grammys, so fans were quick to welcome her Home. It doesn’t exactly preach virtue, but it poetically avoids vice, emphasizing the artist’s sweet, smooth melodies instead.
