    All 11 songs here showcase Lynne's ambition and control.

    There's a welcome '60s pop feel to the material, proof that Lynne doesn't need anyone else to show her how it should be done. [Dec. 2011 p. 129]

    Her voice [is] a soft, soulful instrument that draws the listener in with seemingly minimum effort, then delivers whatever message she wishes to impart to willing ears. [Dec. 2011 pg. 94]

    She's never tackled [her childhood tragedy in] such a head-on way and in such astonishing depth as she does on Revelation Road, a pathway that doesn't reach understanding so much as acceptance out of absolute necessity.

    Revelation Road is the quietest record of Lynne's career, but it feels like her rawest, too, even as it offers, in small bits and pieces, the varying shades, complexities, and pleasures in her musical world.

    As a whole, Revelation Road is the closest Lynne has got to where she should always have been, even if she mightn't stay here long.

    Her third self-produced, self-released record in less than two years, is checkered with sweet-and-salty Americana, despite Lynne's tendency to wander precariously close to Jordache-commercial territory
