Bonnie is still herself - and that's a good thing,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Slipstream, Bonnie Raitt (Audio CD)
After seeing several previous reviews, I decided to post my own.
Overall, this is a real good album. Mostly great songs, with a couple that could have been better. But, let's face it, no album is perfect. Even Michael Jackson's Thriller had a couple songs that weren't very good.
What I like most about Bonnie Raitt is that her style is all her own, which means that many times people either love it or hate it. She doesn't cater to pop, rock or blues standards. She'll play them all, but when she does it has her signature on them. That is what makes her better than anything that will ever come out from an American Idol, X Factor, or The Voice winner.
Does she do this album justice. Absolutely. Should you buy this album? Yes.
If and when she makes it to Milwaukee again, I will definitely see her in concert, too. She did a couple songs on the Colbert Report, and the band sounds tight.
