  1. Another collection of wise, witty tracks marked by her usual spunky vocal style and slashing slide-guitar work.
  2. Assured and dignified. [May 2002, p.119]
  3. Silver Lining is ultimately a showcase for exceptional singing and riveting backup work.
  4. Raitt can still shake some action, but ''Silver Lining'' makes you wish she'd shake it up a bit more.
  5. Throughout all the various textures, Raitt puts forth her signature soulful vocal delivery and gutsy bottleneck chops, once again proving herself queen of the Americana road.
  6. 70
    There's enough happening here to perk up demanding ears. [June 2002, p.106]
  7. 40
    This rote Los Angeles studio rock is dominated by the radio-friendliest songwriters money can buy. [Jun/Jul 2002, p.112]
