  1. 8.0 |   All Music

    If Krauss wants to be the new voice of retro countrypolitan music, Windy City leaves no doubt that she has the talent and the intelligence to make it work, and this album is a richly satisfying experience

  2. 7.5 |   Consequence Of Sound

    A rich look back at country’s sorrowful, heartbroken roots

  3. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    Krauss’s tendency to cool perfection masks a vulnerability that would set this album alight

  4. 6.0 |   The Arts Desk

    One complaint: at just 34 minutes, Windy City just isn't long enough

  5. 6.0 |   The Independent

    Save for a couple of uptempo trotters like the jaunty kiss-off “It’s Goodbye And So Long To You”, it’s mostly melancholy fare

  6. 6.0 |   Uncut

    It would have been much more satisfying had she and Cannon stuck with the style of the songs that bookend the album. Print edition only

  7. 6.0 |   Mojo

    A rather safe album. Print edition only

  8. 6.0 |   Q

    Sometimes, good taste just gets in the way. Print edition only

  9. 5.9 |   Pitchfork

    Her first solo record since 1999 is mildly ambitious and sounds spectacular, but Windy City is not a great showcase of Allison Krauss' crossover sound
