    Throughout her multi-decade-long career, Grammy-winning Lynne has combined eras, influences and genres to create a sound familiar, yet unique. Imagine continues in that tradition.

    I Can't Imagine might be her strongest release this side of I Am Shelby Lynne. [No. 120, p.57]

    The fiercely independent musical spirit that animated her two most recent, deeply personal full-lengths is still strong.

    Whenever the energy flags and the songs become a little so-so, she turns on the voice and dazzles again. [Sep 2015, p.113]

    I Can't Imagine is confident, assured, and fiercely independent.

    Ultimately, for coming back to the label system after so many years on her ownsome, I Can’t Imagine feels like a remarkably minor record in her discography, full of warmth and good vibes but lacking that conviction that has defined virtually all of her post-millennial work.

    Had she toned down some idiosyncrasies and worried a handful of these songs past what sounds like their draft stages, I Can't Imagine could've been a real coup for Lynne.
