Get Closer found Ronstadt returning to the genres that had resulted in her commercial and critical success throughout the 1970s, and working again with British musician and producer Peter Asher.

Linda Ronstadt’s voice has never sounded better than it does on Get Closer. It’s an uneven album, to be sure, but its spirit is unassailable. Ronstadt’s ringing soprano vibrates with clarity and authority on the record’s best songs, and sometimes she uses her voice like a daring rock & roller: she yells until it hurts your ears
