  1. 80
    Charitable largesse aside, it's a must-have for fans of anyone involved. [Sep 2009, p.98]
  2. 80
    The all-together family vibe permeates this unabashedly life-embracing album. [Sep 2009, p.83]
  3. As usual with supergroups—even casual supergroups who cut albums in three weeks like this--no forceful voice dominates. That leads to a lot of creative pudding, but occasionally the chemistry works to break the pleasant, if rarely memorable, bunch-of-pals-having-an-after-hours-jam vibe.
  4. The Sun Came Out, whether intentionally or not, is an album for singers, but often it's the music that elevates the songs and prevents even the slickest moments from falling into the AOR mire.
  5. The songs across this double album aren’t always particularly memorable, but they feel suffused with the warm glow that obviously accompanied the recording process.
