Product Description

It took Sheryl years to graduate from session singer to star, but boy did she graduate with honors: a string of Grammys and platinum LPs! 16 hits and favorites from all her albums are here: Leaving Las Vegas; All I Wanna Do; Strong Enough; If It Makes You Happy; Soak Up the Sun; Favorite Mistake; Everyday Is a Winding Road; A Change Would Do You Good; Picture (with Kid Rock); two unissued tracks, and more!

Despite the photographic presence of an acoustic guitar (the rock & roll equivalent of a rubber bullet), the enviably lovely hair and the unassuming knitwear, Sheryl Crow is staring back at us from the cover of The Very Best Of with her chin resting on a fist clenched tightly with white-knuckled defiance. This is, after all, the girl whose wishful thinking led her to sing "All I wanna do is have some fun" while privately preferring to either curl up in bed for a very long time or roll over and die (she's recently come out of the closet with regards to her longstanding battles with depression).

Yes, she's earned herself an armful of Grammys and has been damned with faint praise, but if you go easy on the relatively troublesome second half of Sheryl Crow's 10-year solo career (the poppy optimism of songs like "C'mon C'mon" and "Soak Up the Sun" seems strained), then this decade-acknowledging resumé serves as a reminder of her narrative talents for summarising the pitfalls of burdensome workloads ("Everyday Is a Winding Road") and problematic squeezes ("My Favorite Mistake") within an MTV-friendly pop framework. --Kevin Maidment

5.0 out of 5 stars A 'Best Of' Worth Buying! November 8, 2003
Format:Audio CD
There are very few remaining artists who can really showcase true talent and acclaim while still making an impact on the charts. Shery Crow is one of these very few. Since her 1993 breakthrough debut album "Tuesday Night Music Club," she has proven time and time again that women can really make it big in this business. She is a critics-darling with ordinary looks and an average voice, but strap a guitar on her, and she'll prove why she's lasted for ten years in this tough and competitive world of music.

"The Very Best Of" is the most essential collection package you will come across all year, with ten years' worth of awesome lyrics, catchy melodies and superb production. It has wisely not been called Greatest Hits, because anyone will tell you that the songs in Sheryl's career have been a little hit-and-miss. However, when Sheryl has a hit on her hands, she knows it and so does the world. How many times has your local radio station played a Sheryl Crow song to death in the mid-Nineties? It happened over and over for years, and when looking back, it's not hard to understand why.

Her debut album provided Sheryl with the mammoth classic "All I Wanna Do," which starts off this compilation. Perhaps Sheryl's best-known song, this is a country/rock anthem that is quite literally one of the all-time great songs. Another three songs from that particularly vivid debut album follow, in the form of "Leaving Las Vegas," "Strong Enough," and "I Shall Believe." The first two were big hits, while the latter is more of a crowd-pleaser that always gets fans going at her live shows. No less than four singles from Sheryl's self-titled sophomore masterpiece from the fall 1996 dominate the album. These four singles are truly the best of Sheryl, and are worth alone the price of this album!

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost a 5 November 9, 2003
Format:Audio CD
So I was only 8 years old when Sheryl released "All I Wanna Do" from the Tuesday Night Music Club album. I remember the summer of 1993 well, and that song is one of those which sparks memories of where you were and what you were doing. A lot of radio play, maybe? Or the video? I don't know. But Sheryl's music and sound is definitely signature. This Very Best Of collection brings some of her hits together with some relatively lesser known songs. Conveniently included is information about each song's achievements and placing on the charts. If you want the hits, get this album.
However, I love reviewing Greatest Hits and Best Of collections because they are never complete (except for maybe this new Eagles collection they have out). "Can't Cry Anymore" and "Anything But Down" are missing, replaced by "The Difficult Kind" and "There Goes the Neighborhood." I'd prefer the former two over the latter two. "Picture" should stay with Kid Rock's music, but it would have been cool to see "You're an Original" on here instead (and C'mon C'mon). Wouldn't mind including her version of "D'yer Maker" as well. Thus concludes my random thoughts on this album. Thank you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall, a very good collection... November 12, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I love Sheryl Crow's music and wanted the CD to be a five-star album, but it simply isn't. While the liner notes obsessively detail Crow's chart successes and Grammy wins, the CD's tracks do not, making for a slightly uneven collection.

Yes, the biggest hits ("Strong Enough," "All I Wanna Do," "If It Makes You Happy") are here, and so are some small ones ("Leaving Las Vegas" and "Home"), but bona fide Top 40 hits like "Can't Cry Anymore" and the TERRIFIC "Anything But Down" are completely ignored. And the Grammy-nominated non-album track "I'm Gonna Be A Wheel Someday" is left off, in favor of non-hit material like "The Difficult Kind."

Both the new songs are good (with "The First Cut Is The Deepest" being the catchiest of the two), and show Crow back on track after her less-than-stellar "C'Mon C'Mon" album. And while it is great to have new songs on any "best of" CD, does this collection really need TWO versions of "The First Cut Is the Deepest"? The spot taken up by the second version (which is not very different from the initial version) would have been better spent including one of the ignored hits or "Riverwide," which is, hands down, one of Crow's best recordings.

The DVD portion of this two-disc set is pretty impressive. The videos for "Anything But Down" and "Run Baby Run" are great to see, especially since the songs were left off the CD proper. The best video on the disc is for the song "Home," which was one I had not seen before--and it is absolutely stunning!
