Not Great, But Funky
Brian Case | Wellsville, N.Y. United States | 10/27/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Get Close is one of those albums you put away for a while but keep coming back to. It's not the best Chrissy Hynde has released, but it's just ... average. The Pretenders are always evolving with different members coming aboard all the time. My favorite cuts are For Your Soul and the gorgeous Chill Factor. There is no doubt in my mind that Chrissy Hynde has one of the best voices in the music industry. Get Close showcases
a funky side that was missing in a lot of their earler (and better) releases. Not the best the Pretenders have put out, but not a bad release either. If you want to get funky some day, play Get Close !"
Pretenders -- always quality

"I can't let those bad review people trash a great album. Get Close, like all Pretenders albums, is one of the best in rock and roll. Chrissie Hynde will go in the record books as the best female rocker of all time.

This is much smoother music than Pretenders I or II, much more alone the lines of Learning to Crawl -- which I think is one of the top 10 albums in rock history. The style is great, the chords are a pleasure to listen to, and the beat is strong. Classic Pretenders.
