All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Olivia Newton-John revisits the material from her 2006 album Grace and Gratitude on 2010's Grace and Gratitude Renewed, a fitting title for the project that gives little clue to the music within. Newton-John returned to these songs of faith and healing to give them a slightly different spin: originally, they were written and recorded during the healing process; now, they have been recorded from a place of serenity. To the outsider, these differences may wind up being a bit too subtle to discern as both records sound as if they're coming from a calm, peaceful vantage point, offering new age paeans of pancultural religion, incorporating Buddhism, Judaism, and ...

To the outsider, these differences may wind up being a bit too subtle to discern as both records sound as if they're coming from a calm, peaceful vantage point, offering new age paeans of pancultural religion, incorporating Buddhism, Judaism, and Christianity under a warm, fuzzy umbrella. It's easy to knock this for not exactly being compelling -- it glides, it doesn't grab -- but that's the whole point: this is meditative mood music and it's gauzily effective in that regard in either of its incarnations.

    STUNNING!

    Olivia's vocals are so amazing on this album! I can't believe she waited so long to get in to this (New Age) type of music. Suits her perfectly. The instrumental interludes between tracks keep the album flowing from one song to the next perfectly. It's got a great Eastern sound throughout with sitar and chants. My new favorite CD!

    Without a doubt, one of Olivia's most unique albums, and one that I would have worn out if it still were the age of vinyl.
