All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Nick of Time not only was an artistic comeback for Bonnie Raitt; it brought her largest audience yet, so there was no reason to mess with success for its sequel, Luck of the Draw.

Nevertheless, Luck of the Draw is an unqualified success, filled with strong songs -- including the hits ...

    Love Bonnie!

    I had the cassette tape of Luck of the Draw and enjoyed it so much that I got the CD. My favorite track is I can't make you love me.

    Her Best

    I enjoy listening to Nick Of Time but Luck of the Draw is even better! Bonnie Raitt is joined once again by some great talent, including Paul Brady and Delbert McClinton. This album has several excellent songs - with more originals than Nick Of Time. And I love listening to Bonnie sing ballads. Buy it.
