    SILVER LINING may be Bonnie Raitt's 16th album, but this scarlet-haired troubadour shows no signs of a creative downturn. Still possessing a rich singing style, an exemplary guitar style, and a passion that imbues every note she sings, Raitt returns to work with the production team of Mitchell Froom and Tchad Blake. Always known to have a keen ear for budding lyricists, Raitt does a fine job in presenting a wide range of songwriters, from the ethereal title track penned by David Gray to the bouncy, GRACELAND-flavored "Hear Me Lord" by Zimbabwean Oliver Mtukudzi, and the esoteric blues of "Back Around," a collaboration with Mali guitarist Habib Koite.
    Bonnie kicks back and has fun trading slide guitar licks with fellow slide master Roy Rogers on the barrelhouse raunch of "Gnawin' On It," wallowing in the funky grit of "Monkey Business," and pouring some soulful singing into the Memphis-flavored snap, crackle, and pop that defines "Time Of Our Lives." Equally noteworthy is "Valley Of Pain" with its yearning vibe, and the nudge-and-wink-infused sass of "Fool's Game." For new and old Bonnie Raitt fans alike, there's no tarnish on this SILVER LINING.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (4/25/02, p.79) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...Superb...Raitt and producers clearly had fun together in the studio on this one. This is an album that makes you want to boogie....proving herself queen of the Americana road."
    Q (May 2002, p.119) - 4 out of 5 stars - "...[A] return to the lurchy blues-funk of her early collaborations...[and] big slide guitar curves....Assured and dignified."
    Uncut (9/02, p.118) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "... a top class product..."
    Mojo (Publisher) (6/02, p.106) - "...Raitt sings soulfully, contributes a solid array of guitar licks and, over 30 years on from her debut LP, demonstrates that she's still seeking fresh ways to move."
