  1. In an era of bloated and overproduced albums, Moorer has delivered a small wonder with Getting Somewhere, and it ranks with her best music to date.
  2. A stunning shot of muscular, melodic rock.
  3. 80
    A set of punchy roots pop whose backbeat thumps as hard as her still-wounded heart. [Jul 2006, p.86]
  4. While The Duel was notable for its forays into blues-rock, Getting Somewhere features several songs crafted in the mold of classic pop, the kind made by the Byrds, Tom Petty, and the Pretenders--heavy on melody and hooks.
  5. 70
    Her keenest yet. [Jul 2006, p.108]
  6. For all of the music's surface catchiness, the writing is some of Moorer's deepest to date.
  7. Getting Somewhere is the first of her albums that not even her vocals can save.
