Originally titled "Perelandra," after the C.S. Lewis science fiction novel of the same name, The Way Home melds sonic sophistication, emotional refinement and spirituality. Braheny's work on the EWI gives the album's two pieces, "The Way Home" and "Perelandra," a shimmering, weightless feel, which the subtle flute accompaniment emphasizes. An expressive and forward-looking album, "The Way Home" set the tone for not only Braheny's career but for much of the new age/electronic music to come.
