  1. Another collection of wise, witty tracks marked by her usual spunky vocal style and slashing slide-guitar work.
  2. The album has only one dark cloud amongst its dozen songs.

    Assured and dignified. [May 2002, p.119]
  4. Raitt can still shake some action, but ''Silver Lining'' makes you wish she'd shake it up a bit more.

    There's enough happening here to perk up demanding ears. [June 2002, p.106]

    This rote Los Angeles studio rock is dominated by the radio-friendliest songwriters money can buy. [Jun/Jul 2002, p.112]
