Apr 20, 2017Most of the record's 11 songs are graced by provocative sounds lurking at the margins of the mix--something that sounds like a music box on "Halfway There," a saloon piano on "Rest of Me," all the compressed guitars as percussion--that help elevate this set of strong, sophisticated pop into something special.

The rock based rhythms are back, as is real groove in a number of the tunes, echoing earlier albums. There are a number of excellent tracks: Halfway There, Long Way Back, the title track Be Myself but for me the standout is Love Will Save The Day. Be Myself is a thoroughly enjoyable, easy to listen to album and I've already played this multiple times which I can't say for Sheryl Crow's last few albums.For me it hit the spot.… Expand

The best thing about 'Be Myself' is the fact that it sounds distinctively like Sheryl Crow. An extensive promo tourGood but not brilliant.
The best thing about 'Be Myself' is the fact that it sounds distinctively like Sheryl Crow. An extensive promo tour put great emphasis on how this record would be a return to Crow's rootsy sound from the nineties - I was disappointed as this only seems to be the case with a few tracks.
The best noise features in the diaphonous outro of 'Long Way Back' while the greatest lyrics smack you in the nose during the first few lines of 'Grow Up'.
There is however a satisfying theme which webs the songs together. A theme which rejects pretentious modern-day crap like selfies and technology saturation - this will definitely strike as an ear pleaser for nostalgia seekers and hipsters.
Supreme songs are 'Long Way Back', 'Roller Skate' and 'Grow Up'.… Expand
