CRITIC REVIEWS

91
Entertainment Weekly

Seven albums in, Carlile has long since proven herself constitutionally incapable of making a bad record. She's not about to start now.

American Songwriter

This is, in every way, a crowning affair, one that’s destined to be considered a high point in Carlile’s ever-expansive career. It’s little wonder then that In These Silent Days consistently speaks volumes. 

90
AllMusic

As the album alternates between candid whispers and raw catharsis, it is unmistakably the work of Brandi Carlile, who once again proves she's one of the best singer/songwriters of her generation.

90
The Young Folks

Yes, isn’t necessarily a radical reinvention for neither Carlile nor her collaborators, but song for song, it’s the most compassionate and unflinching collection of the artist’s career thanks to the fresh clarity her memoir’s reflection and self-examination provided her.

As Carlile finds a vision for the life she wants to lead, she questions rightness repeatedly.

Paste

On Silent Days, she reins in the grandeur a bit, but still manages to wring her share of big moments out of a leaner sound.

Certainly, there's nothing here to stop her rise.

Uncut

The songs are introspective, reflective and fretful, all qualities amplified by its proximity to the writing of Carlile's acclaimed memoir Broken Horses

She’s not messing with a good thing so much as offering subtle refinements of the strengths — particularly as a vocalist — that led to her breakout.

Após toda a melancolia do aclamado "By The Way I Forgive You", Brandi Carlile retorna com as reflexões existenciais, mas otimistas de "In These Silent Days".

Brandi Carlile, com certeza é uma das artistas estadunidenses que merecia mais reconhecimento, com sua voz surpreendente e capacidade de escrita admiráveis, ela consegue seguir o country e folk sem em nenhum momento soar genérica em tais respectivos gêneros. E a ... read more

Sorry for no reviews lately, had some personal stuff I was going through. Anyway, let's do this review!

I feel like people tend to overlook the country genre a bit. Now of course, much of the country that charts these days is pretty bad and should be overlooked, but I've noticed that many music listeners tend to look at that and dismiss country as a terrible genre overall. However, there have always been the artists with less chart presence and more critical acclaim, as well as the older and ... read more

I love how true to her art Brandi Carlile is. ‘In These Silent Days’ is no different. Although some songs don’t connect with me as much, I can still recognize the care put into each track. ‘Right on Time’ is SOTY by the way.

Rootsy and often raw blues rock, sentimental and bittersweet

Standouts: Right on Time, Broken Horses, When You’re Wrong, Sinners, Saints and Fools
