Product Description

Amazon.ca

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 Favourite Mistake") within an MTV-friendly pop framework. Questionably, such gems as the James Bond theme "Tomorrow Never Dies" and the US abortion issue commentary of "Hard to Make a Stand" (both sizeable UK hits) have been omitted to make room for three new tracks, two of which, the evangelical "Light in Your Eyes" and the post-9/11 "Let's Get Free" betray the influences of George Harrison and the Beatles. --Kevin Maidment

5.0 out of 5 stars Good collection Nov. 4 2003
By Jake Z
Format:Audio CD
Sheryl Crow has always been one of my favorite artists, with her intense and deep lyrics, and great voice. I always enjoyed her music, it was so original and just different from everything out there, to me at least. So it comes to no surprise that there is a collection of greatest hits for such a prolific artist and entertainer. They have compiled a pretty good collection of her work. My only complaint is that there's a few missing tracks, obviously not enough room, but "Anything But Down", "Sweet Child of Mine" and the James Bond theme are noticably missing. "There Goes The Neighborhood" is a nice song, but it seems like an odd choice as it was not a big hit. Either way, there is some great stuff here. I enjoy the ballads "Home", "The Difficult Kind", "I Shall Believe", "Strong Enough" and more. Everyone knows the big hits "Soak Up The Sun", "Everyday Is A Winding Road", "My Favorite Mistake", "If It Makes You Happy", "All I Wanna Do", and so on. The new tracks are good, her version of "The First Cut Is The Deepest" is a great rendition. I love the other new song "Light In Your Eyes", which has a great melody and vocals from Crow. The Deluxe Edition also comes with a DVD of 13 of her videos, so a must have for all fans. Overall you can't go wrong with this collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Deluxe Edition is tops Dec 3 2003
By Sanis1
Format:Audio CD
Sheryl Crow's greatest hits albumn is a great albumn for casual fans that do not want some her less known songs. As a fan of Sheryl Crow, this albumn is great as well, even though some complaints are that it has left certain lesser known songs off for more of Sheryl's favorites. I was happy surprised that I Shall Believe and A Difficult Kind were added because those are two of Sheryl's most powerful songs. Her two newly recorded songs are good but I do not like the idea of having new songs on a Greatest Hits Albumn (they are suppose to be hits before they are the albumn) but I guess I will have to live with this trend from now on since all artists are doing it. As for the extra DVD, I think it is great because there is rarely an outlet for fans to own a legal copy of an artist's videos (since MTV & VH1 no longer play videos and downloading music videos might not fall under the time displacement exception to copyright laws). In all if you are a fan, you already own the deluxe edition (if you are a fan and don't then go get it). As for a causal fan get the regular edition but are into videos get the deluxe because some of her vidoes are great and add to the songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soak up the sun Sept. 11 2006
Format:Audio CD
Sheryl Crow has been a singer I have enjoyed ever since I first heard her on the radio. As a best of cd, this ones very good. Like some other reviewers on here I still remember the first time I heard Soak Up the Sun and All I Wanna Do on the radio. I also love First Cut Is the Deepest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great compilation Nov. 4 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've always liked Sheryl Crow but I never bought any of her albums. So I was very happy that she released a greatest hits and I was not disappointed. A great compilation! I bought in Canada so maybe the tracklisting has tiny changes, but I think it's the same at the US:
1. All I Wanna Do
2. Soak Up The Sun
3. My Favorite Mistake
4. First Cut Is The Deepest, The
5. Everyday Is A Winding Road
6. Leaving Las Vegas
7. Strong Enough
8. Light In Your Eyes
9. If It Makes You Happy
10. Difficult Kind, The
11. Picture - (with Kid Rock)
12. Steve McQueen
13. Change Would Do You Good, A
14. Home
15. There Goes The Neighborhood
16. I Shall Believe
17. First Cut Is The Deepest, The - (bonus track, country version)
The tracks that I love from Sheryl Crow are: Tracks 1, 2, 3, 5, 9 & 13. Basically all her biggest hits. I also like tracks 4 & 6. All the songs are good in fact. The only songs that are missing and that I would've liked to have are "Sweet Child O Mine" because I thought she did a great job covering the Guns N Roses classic and also the theme from James Bond. But no compilation is perfect and I'm glad that they at least included the huge majority of the hits. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a "Strong Enough" collection. July 14 2004
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
It's amazing how popular "Sheryl Crow" and this collection are, but I guess she's just one of those musicians that appeal to everyone. This of course is missing a few favorite tracks, like "Anything But Down", "C'mon C'mon", and her cover of "Sweet Child O' Mine", but otherwise this is loaded with hits. All the biggies are here, like "All I Wanna Do", "Every Day Is A Winding Road", "My Favorite Mistake", and "Soak Up The Sun". Plus, "The First Cut Is The Deepest" and "Light In Your Eyes" both became really popular, and I actually like the song with "Kid Rock" too. Overall it's a great collection, and it sounds just as good as this Missouri girl still looks.

Like Sheryl Crow. I suppose I like the stuff not on the radio more than what is played on the radio. Feel like I wasted my money.

Why is this so popular? I have never been able to figure that out. Sheryl Crow's hit songs remind me of lousy "Tab" and "Diet Rite" commercials from the '70s. Read more
