Positive and powerful the whole way through, the soundtrack for DreamWorks’ animated feature Home brings the movie's uplifting feel to the stereo and/or headphones. Rihanna, who makes her voice-acting debut in the movie as the character Tip, offers three of the eight songs here, including the key cut "Towards the Sun," a grand and moving ballad. "As Real as You and Me" is her softer highlight although it carries the same emotional weight, and there's her club-worthy "Dancing in the Dark," which is quite good, but is topped by Jacob Plant and his simple, effective trap song "Drop That'." Charli XCX, Jennifer Lopez, Kiesza, and Coffee round out a short track list that's still heavy with pop superstars.
