    The tunes are serviceable, if hardly Fast Car. [Dec 2002, p.102]
  2. Many of the songs have a similar feel and lack distinctive melodies to keep them from blending together.

    Too much about Tracy Chapman's Let It Rain is austere. [#12, p.138]
  4. It's a harrowing trip, and while clearly heartfelt, one is left with the impression that Let It Rain isn't so much meant to be enjoyed as pitied.

    I think it is much more like her roots than the past albums have been.
