"Settle down / It'll all be clear," Phillip Phillips sings in a repeated verse from his smash hit "Home." Will it, though? Phillips' American Idol coronation song and mainstream breakthrough is notably distinctive from Idol originals past in many, many ways, but its ambiguity is one of its most striking differences. Unlike past super-direct, face-value Idol songs, specifics are kept to a bare minimum, and the song's "I'm gonna make this place your home" refrain, while touching and comforting, has a vagueness to it that allows the listener to sort derive their own meaning from it.
