  1. Bare Bones is a remarkable work from one of the best artists in vocal jazz.
  2. Bare Bones is a beautifully slow-cooked album that encourages us to look on the bright side. Not a bad message these days.
  3. Peyroux's care for her materials never falters.
  4. All sound pretty wonderful in the hands of Peyroux's stealthy, silk-draped vocals, delivered with a winning air of slightly detached mystery.
  5. Peyroux still sounds like Peyroux, only more so. Which isn't a bad thing either.
  6. The smart and emotional material makes for an impressive step away from the retro ghetto.
  7. Q Magazine
    Another way classy set they make. [May 2009, p.118]
