  • Summary: Sheryl Crow's fourth album features guest appearances from Emmylou Harris, Don Henley, Lenny Kravitz, Liz Phair and Stevie Nicks.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 9 out of 17
  2. Negative: 1 out of 17
  1. A skillful synthesis of classic rock and modern sensibilities that's pretty irresistible.
  2. One of the best commercial rock albums of the year so far, and the sort of quality work that should dispel any skepticism about Crow's current hyper exposure.

    Crow's subtle, stirring vocal style exhibits the same resilient innocence that makes Meg Ryan a sympathetic screen star. [Apr/May 2002, p.115]

    C'Mon, C'Mon makes such consensus-building sound like a virtue, imagining a world where the Dixie Chicks and Stevie Nicks and Emmylou Harris and Dr. Dre's bass player can all ride the same tour bus. [May 2002, p.118]
  5. It's frustrating to imagine how much more power Crow could amp up by tattering the edges of her best songs and avoiding the crowd-pleasing delicacy that makes her sound like a Sheryl Crow cover band. Led by Bob Seger.
  6. No dolt, she figures it's in her best interest to sound like one--as well as an insider outsider like Gush and Bore, whose horrible lessons in playing it safe she takes to heart.
  7. Maybe this is what passes for rebellion now -- a major label, videogenic looks, and VH1's stamp of approval -- but it equals undistinguished California rock and will probably sell a couple million.

    It is a light rock-pop album that inspires and suites every mood. If you wanna have some fun, "Soak up the sun", if you wanna shout and scream, "steve mqueen" and if your heart is broken too, "Over you." You can listen to it any time, good mood or bad, and there will be a song to cheer you up. Some of Sheryl's best work to date, this album features some heart rendering songs about broken hearts, but this, seemingly, is what Sheryl does best! 10/10. She's proved yet again that she definately has what it takes to be a rock legend! Expand

    She insteals the Tesla phrase " It's not what you have but it's what you give. It's not the life you choose but it's the life you live." She gives! You are in our hearts Expand

    Wow. It's amazing, coz first I loved all of the singles. Then I finally heard the whole disc and now I hate the singles and love everything else. "It's So Easy" is tragically beautiful, written through the eyes of a a woman in love with a married man, "It's Only Love" tells of her broken heart when the man dumps her. It's a story, really. The story of a helpless romantic woman who's looking for love in all the wrong places. "Abilene", the best track on the album, is inspiring. Expand

    5 for the only 2 real Crow songs on this disc, "Soak" and "Original". The latter is the best song by a wide margin, a seemingly biting swipe at airheads like Spears and Aguilera and all their millions of analogues. I love Sheryl Crow's work but this disc is not even in the same league as her other three studio albums. Stevie Nicks may be a wonderful human being, but musically, she's the kiss of death lately. It was nice to hear Don Henley again. Fortunately, it won't take much time for Sheryl to try on a different persona and we can hope that one will make another good album. So far she's tried "groovy cool SoCal outsider" (10), "angry ballripper" (10), "devastated depressive" (10), and now "sunny well-heeled hippy chick with lots of famous friends who are no help" (5). I'm hoping for "country girl with a rocker's heart", which is what she really is, for the next persona. -danny Expand

    One great song (Steve McQueen). The rest is mediocre-to-wretched.
