    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.

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. Expand

    It took me a listen or two to acclimatize to it, but when I did, did I ever. Once in a while an album comes along that as soon as it's over you want to play it again, and again. Feels Like Home is right, it fits like a comfy old glove. I could quibble and say I'd prefer something more alt-y and gritty, maybe produced by Jack White, but on its own terms, this album works a treat.

Every song works strongest songwriting since Globe Sessions. Nothing sounds like an empty genre exercise, unlike some of her other material of the last 10 years. She sounds fully engaged and invested and it shows in her singing, she sings the hell out of these tracks. A warm and welcome place to be indeed. Expand

    Mostly she's clever, soulful, sexy, and only a gram of venturesomeness short of her early best. [Apr 2014, p.90]

    This daughter of Missouri has merely up-twanged her still-rockin' sound, and boosted the songs' mom, kids and downhome content and the gritty, often rub-tickling detail in the telling that keeps it real. [Mar 2014, p.111]

    Everything is despatched with verve and attitude, respectful of country music traditions but filtered through a broader, more urbane worldview.
