If there is a moisture problem in your home, no insulation is going to work. If there is no moisture problem, any type of blown-in will work. Although, I believe that the best way to insulate is to strip your drywall/plaster and lathe, and insulate with a vapor barrier. That is not economical timewise or financially though. If there are rooms that you will be opening walls in, or have exterior walls in need of serious repair anyway, I HIGHLY recommend doing it right.
