    It makes for another assured chapter in a celebrated life, a celebrated achievement. [Jun 2022, p.24]

    It all adds up to an album that slowly works its way into the subconsious, sounding deeper and richer with each successive play.

    [“Livin’ for the Ones”] draws a life force from mourning, countering petty impulses toward lethargy or self-pity with the blunt recognition of so many lives lost. ... Another kind of solace after death arrives in the quietly poignant title track of “Just Like That…”. ... The rest of the album features Raitt’s more typical fare: songs about love lost and found, about getting together or drifting apart.

    She could have ventured further afield with the covers, as she did with Dig in Deep’s sly take on INXS’ “Need You Tonight.” Still, she sounds good, she plays better, and her band, co-led by longtime foil George Marinelli, simmers.

    As warm and soulful as ever. [May 2022, p.79]

    The material is consistently strong, thanks in large part to her ability to integrate her originals with a well-chosen collection of covers. And while she doesn’t feel the need to lean on standards, the material does have meaning.

    Solid and dependable rather than spectacular. [Jun 2022, p.91]

    Bonnie Raitt she is a legend that never disappoints and that holds true for this album. There are some mellow thoughtful tunes along with ForkBonnie Raitt she is a legend that never disappoints and that holds true for this album. There are some mellow thoughtful tunes along with Fork Rock and her famous slide guitar. A must have even after a long hiatus Bonnie delivers Just Like That... Expand
