10. Threads (2019)

“Sheryl Crow has stated publicly that this is the final album she will ever release. She stated that the main reason for her decision is because nowadays music is mostly bought in digital download form, and in a lot of those cases just as individual tracks. She went on to say that she felt that the whole integrity of the “album” as both an art form and as a complete musical statement by an artiste, has therefore been completely compromised. I have to admit that I wholeheartedly agree with her.”

9. 100 Miles From Memphis (2010)

“Sheryl Crow’s last album was pretty damn good but she could have written an album that is in the same league as her breakthrough debut. After listening to the new Prince record and all its awesome funkiness comes a very soulful offering from Crow. The opening cut is a complete winner and one of my favorite songs of 2010 sitting pretty high on the list, top 10 right now. The lady doesn’t disappoint at all on this album Sheryl has kinda taken a side-step from what her regular music style of singer/songwriter pop usually sounds like. This is a very good thing and a welcomed change as she’s always at her best when her sunshine pop side is in full effect.”

8. Feels Like Home (2013)

“Sherly Crow was once the ultimate indie rock/country rock crossover artist. While Crow was always leaning towards the pop side of rock, her tunes had the fire and the edge to them that appealed to fans of rock, albeit soft rock. She also allowed herself to bring in some of her influences from the country side of things to give her music a nice, laid back feel. As she has matured/gotten older she has drifted further away from the rock side of things and gone more MOR/country. “Feels Like Home” is Crow’s out and out country album. It’s better than I expected and you can’t help yourself from foot tapping your way through most of the songs. I still prefer her early stuff, especially her first 3 albums and I would take those records over “Feels Like Home”. “Feels Like Home” is consistent but lacks any individual standout moments. That said, this has a place in any Sheryl Crow fans collection.”

7. Be Myself (2017)

“Sheryl Crow still sounds quite a ballsy lady, which has always been one of her better qualities, but she definitely seems to run out of songs and things to say towards the end of this album. The last two tracks, Grow Up & Woo Woo are obvious fillers and should have been left on the cutting room floor, which is a shame really as the rest of the album isn’t too bad. There is still enough evidence on show here that she can deliver some decent music, but this album is not as strong as some of her earlier output.”

6. Detours (2008)

“Detours see’s Ms Crow in flying form once again. “Detours” has some interesting themes going on  and is generally quite a topical album. The songs are strong, very tuneful and her vocals are excellent. The production is great as well with Bill Bottrell at the controls again. There is a mix of folk, pop and rock going on and fans of her earlier stuff will lap it up. It’s not her best work and the first half of the album is far stronger than the second half,but overall it is a very solid record and one I would definitely recommend to fans of hers.”

5. Wildflower (2005)

“I have never really been a huge fan of Sheryl Crow until Wildflower.  I think the song “Leaving Las Vegas” is one of the all time worst, but Crow took a different approach to her latest effort that is strangely satisfying.  The album is much more reflective and atmospheric than anything she has done in the past and it shows through the best tracks such as “Good is Good”, “I Know Why”, and “Perfect Lie”, all melodic atmospheric anthems.  Wildflower really does not have any bad songs at all and flows nicely as an album.  This is easily Sheryl Crow’s finest work, and I hope there is more like it to come.”

4. C’mon C’mon (2002)

“Even the untrained ear can tell this is NOT an album Sheryl was trying to make to please the public.  Many melodies are complex, song titles don’t match the chorus, and the four minute song idea went out the window.  But what is left IS something pleasing; since it seems to be the most personal to date with no hook other than its greatness.  And even the most popular track, the lighthearted “Soak Up the Sun” has a great theme buried in it and goofs on the people who it seems she knew would try to pick it apart.  From sing-song tracks like “C’mon C’mon” to the haunting melodies and lyrics of “Diamond Road”, this work is SOLID.”

3. The Globe Sessions (1998)

“I was a fan of this lady at the height of her chart success in the mid to late 90’s. At the turn of the century I seemed to forget all about her (coincidently around the same time she collaborated with the Corrs). I was recently going through some of my albums and found this and gave it a belt. I had heard the singles of this a few times over the years but I had forgotten just how great this album is and I really reconnected with her tunes. It’s as strong a record by a solo female artist that I’ve come across in recent times. The songwriting is consistently strong, the playing and vocals are tight and the production fits the songs like a glove. Lots of rock and attitude present, great singles and solid album tracks. I’m glad I’ve blown the dust off of this gem of a record and it will be getting far more frequent use in the future. Excellent.”

2. Tuesday Night Music Club (1993)

“Apart from The globe sessions Crow’s debut remains her best album. Of course it had a lot of hit singles and even though they’re good, these songs are not the ones that make the album great. The less well known material turns out to be much more interesting: “Can’t cry anymore” sounds like the Stones and is actually better than the Stones themselves have done in a long time, “No one said it would be easy” is a lovely ballad with some excellent guitar playing, “Solidify” is a decent attempt at funk, but the best bits can be found at the end. “We do what we can” is a lovely piano ballad with some great trumpet playing, while “I shall believe” which closes the album is probably her best song ever. The hits still sound good, at least to my ears, but as they have been played to death over the years they aren’t worth discussing here. In fact, the album only goes wrong 2 times. “

1. Sheryl Crow (1996)

‘I’m so glad that the reviews for this album are so much more sensible. Yes this is a great album. Sheryl showcases her voice on this album and is sounding much better than Tuesday Night Music Club. It shines through that this album is much more a part of her. “Oh Marie” is my favorite but only because I’m sure I dated the exact same Marie the song was written about and she was the most gorgeous girl. Musically too this album is so much more involving and interesting. Enough said except that Yes I like this album and Yes I liked “Tuesday Night Music Club”. Sheryl evolves as do all musos from album to album. Two different albums but two good albums.”
