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

I loved Sheryl Crow's songs about adventure and escape. Steve McQueen is a great rock song about rebellion and fast cars. I have always liked her choices of song titles too. I love the song title If It Makes You Happy and Every Day Is A Winding Road, because they always sounded interesting and somewhat philosophical to me. This CD is a wonderful collection and retrospective of Sheryl Crow's musical career. I enjoyed it very much.
