Product Description

Amazon.com

For some fairly shallow performers, there comes a time when their craft becomes a chore, when scribbling songs for the big follow-up album turns into a black-and-white deadline. Clever composers can almost disguise this ennui, burying it in a smarmy, sunshine-beaming mix. Key word: almost. Ergo, a trial spin through clever composer Sheryl Crow's The Globe Sessions evokes the faintest hint of a feeling that grows stronger with each successive listening--there's no sense that the artist intended this material as anything more than tepid album filler. A conversation with your local supermarket checkout girl would prove far more riveting than Crow's pretentious and all-too-casual observations (set to the tune, it must be noted, of some likable, jangly hooks). "Get out the camera, take a picture / The drag queens and the freaks are all out on the town," she purrs over chucka-chucka choogling on "There Goes the Neighborhood," which is probably what any self-respecting drag queen or freak would mutter once Crow moved in, scrounging for her now-patented vicarious cool. The closest The Globe Sessions comes to any palpable sincerity is during an actually-might've-lived-it, whoops-I'm-in-trouble-again "Mississippi." Even then, Crow drowns the moment in perfectly enunciated syllables, more prissy than alleycat-prowling. Crow started out with a credible Tuesday Night Music Club pedigree, surrounded by visionaries such as David Baerwald (For this disc, she relies heavily on ex-Wire Train mainstay Jeff Trott). But they're gone, and things change, to the point where, if you support this silly sycophant with your hard-earned dollars, there's only one question that you'll need to be asked: Do you want paper or plastic? --Tom Lanham

The songs themselves are very good.

In light of Sheryl Crow's latest album, the poppy, sparkling "C'mon C'mon", I had to go back and visit this, her previous effort, from four years earlier. For sure, there is a lot of difference between the two albums, but both deserve accolades for fantastic musicianship. In fact, of Sheryl's 4 releases, only the first one is worthy of less than 5 stars in my book. Since then, she has continued to grow musically. This third release is further proof of that.
"My Favorite Mistake" and "Anything But Down" showcase this album very well as two fine singles. Both are clever and typically understated Sheryl. However, I also enjoy the catchiness of "There Goes The Neighborhood", the melancholy of "The Difficult Kind", and the hard, distorted sound of the end of "Am I Getting Through (Parts I & II)". Unlike her latest album, this album is not overall pop-based, which perhaps explains its lesser sales compared to her other albums. Nontheless, I consider it equally as brilliant as anything else this remarkable artist has put out...this is truly another Sheryl Crow masterpiece.

I'll grant you, I like the album, but even if I didn't, I would still dislike this editorial review. I think that it's fully possible for anyone to contemplate points of view without the experience which led to adopting them, or to change their tone in describing their lives. You shouldn't buy this album if you don't think that Sheryl Crow should have done anything but write endless remakes of "All I Wanna Do."
In essence, this record captures all of the feelings associated with love that fails - "My Favorite Mistake," "Riverwide," "Maybe That's Something," "Anything But Down" and "The Difficult Kind" all describe different aspects of disappointment, sadness or regret. There's a fair bit of funk in the drums and the wah-wah clavinets on "There Goes the Neighborhood," but it's the open-tuned Keith Richards chords that inform the listener of a conscious decision to return to harder, more basic sounds in rock. I don't think that Plastic Ono Band was seen as a step towards mediocrity and creative burnout for John Lennon, despite the fact that there were no Beatles-sized hits on it.
This record handles adult themes of loss and pain, and maybe it did rang as false for the Amazon reviewer as true for me and everyone else on this page. However, I did a search under Music for albums of his that unpaid reviewers awarded five stars, and not surprisingly there weren't any. Some people are famous and well-liked for a reason, and some albums simply have too much truth and power to be disregarded because they don't match the prejudices of the art worldlings.

"The Globe Sessions" is Sheryl Crow's third album and among those first three, in my opinion, her most exciting one. It's quite easy to tell that with this album she was making the music that she wanted to make and not just music that was approved by studio executives. Among the most impressive aspects of this particular album for me are the tracks that would definitely be classified as country or country rock. I am by no means a country music fan but if they all sounded like this beautiful Missouri girls brand of it, I certainly would be.
Apart from the most popular song on the album "My Favorite Mistake," which has received more than ample airtime over the years, this album is populated with some of Sheryl Crow's best material to date. Whether one is looking at these songs from the pop or country aspect, they can all be classified as good to great music.
I highly recommend this album to those that are interested in listening to good music that is well written and performed by a beautiful woman with a beautiful voice who sings with an incomparable depth of emotion in each and every song; whether she's attempting to emote joy or sadness in her songs, she gets it down perfectly! {ssintrepid}

In the 1990s, Sheryl Crow established herself as a top female musician in the music industry. In 1994, she came out of nowhere to win the Grammy's Record of the Year award with "All I Wanna Do" from her "Tuesday Night Music Club" album. Two years later, she avoided the sophomore jinx with her self titled album that produced three major hits ("A Change Will Do You Good", "If It Makes You Happy", and "Every Day is a Winding Road". Usually the acid test of the longevity of an artist will come two albums after the first hit album (i.e. the third album). With "The Globe Sessions", Crow takes her place among the rock elite. This album might not have had the number of hits like her self-title album did, but without a doubt this was a critically acclaimed collection. In fact, "The Globe Sessions" would go on to win the Album of the Year award.

The title of the album comes from the fact that Crow recorded this album at Globe Studios in New York City. The album is the culmination of a lot of good work. There are some terrific lyrics and music that was written for this album. Crow probably does some of her best vocals she has done in her career. Although Crow has been surrounded with a very good group of studio musicians, what I find most amazing in the amount of different instruments that she plays on this album. This list goes: Bass Guitar, Organ, Keyboard, Clavinet, Percussion, Acoustic Guitar, National Guitar, Funk Guitar, Electric Guitar, 12 String Electric Guitar, Tambourine, and Harmonica. After seeing all of the instruments she plays in the liner notes, I was completely amazed by the talent of this musician. Another key thing to note is that she basically does all of the vocals in her songs without making a lot of use of background vocalists.
