Editorial Reviews

For Sheryl Crow, the title of her seventh album isn't just a location; it's a state of mind. So for the Kennett, Missouri native, calling the disc 100 Miles From Memphis is a statement of purpose, both musical and emotional. It also marks a long-awaited return by the nine-time Grammy winner to the sounds that first drew her to making music. The results evoke a time when soul and passion filled the radio waves, when the sweat and joy of a recording session could be captured forever on wax. Sometimes the musical references--Al Green, Sly and the Family Stone, Stevie Wonder--are made apparent, but the album's 11 songs are characterized more by capturing a classic spirit than by imitating any specific style. Features guest appearances from Keith Richards, Justin Timberlake and Citizen Cope.

She has a lock on it if a special award is handed out for least interesting cover art (listing the tracks on it is a nifty retro look, though), but Sheryl Crow has produced the most interesting, if not the best, music of her career with "100 Miles From Memphis."

For one thing, not a single moody ballad is among the tracks. There are no fist-pumping, politically-themed-rise-to-action anthems, either. Lightheartedness and peace accent even the album most serious moment, the standout "Stop," a plea for safety and normalcy in a reliably imperfect world.

The no-frills cover of the Jackson 5's "I Want You Back" epitomizes the album's cool, laid-back vibe. Her vocals are uncannily - and delightfully - similar to Michael Jackson's.

No song among the dozen really stands out. This is not an album that will produce hits. Casual fans will long for something sweeter and catchier. However, others will be drawn in by the celebratory mood, sublimely pitch-perfect backing vocal harmonies and airtight musicianship that make songs like the well-oiled, beautifully arranged "Summer Day" and the airy, colorful title track absolutely and perfectly render Crow's artistic vision a reality.

"Roses and Moonlight" rides an infectious, soulful groove with one of the album's few noticeable choruses. "Say What You Want" has one of the album's simplest lyrics, with Crow putting all pretense aside, resulting in one of the album's cheeriest, most uplifting moments. Even the gloomy subject of matter of "Our Love Is Fading" does not detract from the optimistic atmosphere.

For an album so casual and folksy, its edges remain smooth and professional where it counts.

This is not likely the Sheryl Crow that you know, and to be honest, with the first two tracks I was wishing that it was. But by the end of the disc I was wishing that it was twice as long. I'm amazed at how authentic it sounds. It's as if Marvin Gaye himself was sitting behind the board dictating the production. This set has a few covers (which are undeniably great) but this disc is mostly SC-penned tunes--displaying another facet of her brilliant writing (except when she's overtly political--I'm not really into all of that. And there are tinges of this here but I have to make her that allowance since Soul and R&B, which she deftly re-creates, has always had socio-political elements. See MG's "What's Goin' On" for an example). But I was really shocked by her performance. I know that she can write and I know that really good writers can cross genre lines successfully but I wasn't prepared to her her sound so soulful. Think cool-Joss Stone minus vocal acrobatics. I'm now hoping that SC will do a live disc of about 20 such songs. I love her "standard" fare but this is "a happy surprise." And as far as the first two tracks, it's not that they're not good, it's simply that I wasn't ready--or willing--to hear 100 Miles until she delivered her take on Terence Trent D'Arby's "Sign Your Name." Simply incredible and satisfying. The rest... well, if you like the groove of Soul, believe me, Crow has your number.

Bottom line: If you like late-60s-Early 70s Soul and R&B, and you can set aside what you think Sheryl Crow is or can do, then you can love this album (yes, album because it belongs to that era). Other artists may do soul songs but SC DOES soul. Hearing is believing.

i am a big fan....but like many of her fans I like the more "rock" side of sheryl. songs like "if it makes you happy" and "steve mcqueen" are the ones I like best.

with this album you find very little rock...it's pretty laid back, soulful and peaceful. it does not in any way mean that it's bad. like many artists sheryl is evolving and experimenting.....for me as a fan I like her earlier stuff best but this album is far from bad. i can recognize that the songs are good songs but just not what i prefer most of the time.

so if you buy it expecting it to sound like her older stuff you will not get it....if you buy it with the understanding that she is experimenting a bit and the songs are a bit more laid back then you will have a good chance of enjoying it.

Who would've thought Sheryl Crow would be the one to put Jack Johnson in his place and prove a laid-back, summery album can actually have some ingenuity and variation from track to track? Pulling from a variety of influences, Sheryl Crow does just that with her seventh studio album. Opening with "Our Love Is Fading," Crow shows off her soulful side. Filled with horns and backup singers, "Our Love Is Fading" hits the ground running before settling into the peaceful groove that follows.

With the aid of Keith Richards on guitar, "Eye to Eye" introduces hints of reggae as the tempo slows down. Although the pace of the album makes a drastic change after "Our Love Is Fading," the horns heard on both tracks maintain a recognizable timbre that keeps the flow of the record smooth. This then allows the relaxed beats of "Sign Your Name," featuring Justin Timberlake on backup vocals, and the lead single "Summer Day" to follow without feeling out of place.

The smooth, soulfulness of 100 Miles from Memphis can be credited, in part, to the production work of Doyle Bramhall II (Eric Clapton and B.B. King) and Justin Stanley (Nikka Costa). Their collective minds give Crow's seventh record the same fun feeling heard on some of her earliest singles such as "All I Wanna Do."

Having grown up in a small town 100 miles from Memphis, Sheryl Crow hints, quite blatantly, at a return to her roots with the title of her newest album. By doing so, she has created an enjoyable album that shows off the true potential of her voice. For fans of her earlier work, this album has been a long time coming. For the more casual listener, 100 Miles From Memphis might just make the unbearable heat this summer has brought us a bit more tolerable.
