  1. These are pop's most artful anti-Bush statements to date.
  2. 90
    Her best in two decades. [Dec 2003, p.120]
  3. Her magnetism radiates as powerfully as ever.
  4. For once, the return to form tag rings true. [Dec 2003, p.129]
  5. 80
    Although Evening... has this unexpected core of angry commitment, she's still slick with Californian cruisers. [Nov 2003, p.123]
  6. If things seem schizophrenic it's because they are.
  7. While political manifestos are never something attractively wedded to song, Jones keeps humanity on the record, mostly with supportive grooves and her tantalizing way with twisting a note.
