    Bonnie Raitt returns after more than seven years of hiatus, with her latest - and most successful in career, rock-blues album - "Slipstream". Songs have an amazing groove, which is revealed even in "Used To Rule The World" or "Split Decision". Certainly in sixteenth Bonnie disc could be seen experience drawn from previous publications revealing in even avant-garde for artist compositions -Bonnie Raitt returns after more than seven years of hiatus, with her latest - and most successful in career, rock-blues album - "Slipstream".

    Saloon-bar rockers such as Split Decision sound tired and hackneyed alongside a beautifully downbeat cover of Dylan's Standing in the Doorway... the peaceful life suits her. [May 2012, p.105]

    Raitt remains a master interpreter of song. [May 2012, p.87]

    There are a few lesser moments, but they don't distract; Slipstream reveals Raitt at another creative peak.
