Bonnie Raitt Reviews

With such disparate folk as Adele and Bon Iver giving props, it's small wonder that Bonnie Raitt sounds energised on her first album since 2005's Souls Alike. Producer Joe Henry - no slouch as a singer-songwriter himself - calls the studio shots and provides the veteran rock slider with an amiable assembly line of grooves and rhythms that will keep her fanbase onside and guarantee airtime on grown-up TV music shows...

It's been seven years since Bonnie Raitt released Souls Alike, and a lot of life has happened. Losing her parents, brother and a best friend has left the veteran blues/soul rocker with plenty to think about--and that pensiveness colors Slipstream with knowing acceptance, nuanced takes on loss and a grace that finds splendor in the raw places. On the hushed, gut-string "What I Had To Do," there are amends being made, regret expressed...

Bonnie Raitt has been at the top of the tree of female Blues players for as long as I can remember. Never ?showy? or overtly sexy but she has a subtly rich voice that just makes you pay attention to her. One of my abiding memories is of her playing with John Lee Hooker and of the sexual chemistry that was crackling between them ? in my book anyone that can bring a chuckle to JLH?s playing is something special...

Bonnie Raitt is such a class act it's easy to forget she's kind of a badass: Harvard African Studies major-turned-world-class-blueswoman, slide-guitar master, platinum pop star and a singer-songwriter with interpretive skills so sharp she once turned "Baby Mine," the maternal lullaby from Dumbo, into a seduction. Slipstream, her first album in seven years and the first she has self-released, is a loose and adventurous reminder of everything she does well...

Redwing We're used to performers of a certain age shedding the overtly sexy part of pop and veering into relatively cooled-off territory. After all, we live in an era when one-time rock and rollers like Rod Stewart and Paul McCartney interpret the standards of their parents' eras. And yet, at the age of 62, Bonnie Raitt still brings the heat--in an adult fashion--as she proves on Slipstream, her 19th album in four decades...

Rock Bonnie Raitt's first album in seven years comes after a period of personal upheaval in which she lost her parents, brother and best friend. Most songwriters would have wilted under the weight of tragedy, but the nine-time Grammy winner handles it with typical grace, channeling the angst in low-slung blues and lending her full-throated voice to a set of covers and originals that by turns reveal anguish and elation...

Etta James and Whitney Houston are gone, but Bonnie Raitt is back, and that's something to be thankful for. "I'm not getting older, I'm getting better" might be an idle boast for some. But Raitt's voice, like that of the ageless Tony Bennett, has gotten even better with more miles on it, still sounding like the sonic equivalent of a glass of Southern Comfort. And when it comes to selling a lyric, there's no one better in any genre...

Bonnie Raitt has made a habit of exposing previously undiscovered songwriting talent, and it appears she's about to do it again with her 18th album, "Souls Alike," the first since 2002's "Silver Lining." What's different this time is that Raitt produced the record (co-produced by Tchad Blake), and made a conscious effort not to repeat herself with too many--nay, any--signature 12-bar-blues songs...

For those of us who've been Bonnie fans throughout her long career, a recording like this just makes us fall in love with her music all over again. She's all raw emotion on ballads like "All At Once" (which she wrote), "I Can't Make You Love Me" and "One Part Be My Lover" (obviously inspired by Raitt's recent marriage to actor Michael O'Keefe, and a mature lover's anthem, for sure, it's nonetheless one of the album's weakest cuts—the instrumentation is somewhat sappy)...
