The Globe Sessions,
A & M Records
| Performance 6 | Sound 7.5 |

Remember about a year and a half ago when her record company and an all-too willing press tried to turn Sheryl Crow into the next 'big thing?' Remember the fizzle that then ensued? Our guess on this is that Crow never signed-on to this marketing scheme with all of her heart. Like her or not, Sheryl Crow is going to do what Sheryl Crow does. What she does is sing songs about things you may or may not care about, in a way that may or may not move you. This we applaud. Because it certainly seems, at least to us, that the spotlight has certainly moved on to those more 'user friendly' artists, yet Crow seems generally unfazed.


To which we say, good for her. Don't let the man keep you down sister. Sadly, this album doesn't do much for us. It's fine for what it is, but it really just seems like Crow revisiting her same niche. Not a whole lot of rock, not an abundance of roll, but more of a folk feel without many political undertones. If she's your bowl of Fruit Loops, we say 'why not,' but if she's not you may want to move on.
