    Potter’s roar makes every song worth listening to, even if each one more or less preaches the same point—something along the lines of “All you need is love.” But there’s an argument to be made for singing about love frankly.

    Though the rest of the album doesn’t meet the same standard as its closing track, Daylight is a solid pop album with no bad songs and a few brilliant moments.

    Some of the slick production, that drowned the last album for many, remains. Yet Daylight goes a long way to reassuring the roots/jam based audience Potter initially cultivated, that her time trying to be the next Taylor Swift is over.

    Daylight works best when Potter is steering the ship. Even with the considerable and seasoned talents of Valentine, Nocturnals alum Benny Yurco, and keyboardists Larry Goldings and Benmont Tench behind her, Potter commands the room.

    Grace Potter returns to her stylistic comfort zone with Daylight. [Jan 2020, p.28]

    The scattered feel at the start of the record, and the decision to use some of those songs as the lead singles, may keep people from absorbing the full work, but ultimately this ends up being a strong album and a giant step forward.
