  • Summary: The singer-songwriter scrapped the original recordings for this, her sixth album, so that she could re-record them with a bit more oomph, thanks to producer Rob Cavallo (Green Day).

  1. As a writer she's never been stronger.
  2. Somewhere beneath the Lilith earnestness glints something sharper. [28 Apr 2006, p.135]
  3. Although Goodbye winds down after the brilliant power pop of "Only One Too", Jewel never appears to be going through the motions. [Jun/Jul 2006, p.131]
  4. The sort of glossy folk-pop that makes you want to usher Alice down the rabbit hole, and roll out the cement mixer. [10 Jun 2006, p.41]
  5. 40
    The new songs are excessively polished and precisely drawn, and relentlessly deliver an uplifting message. [Jun 2006, p.145]
  6. A lilting acoustic-y record with ethereal leanings, plenty of canned, overproduced studio gloss and occasional dangerous forays into mild rock.
