The 4th studio album for sheryl crow, and what a summer rocker it is!
the first single, soak up the sun, is a happy go lucky upbeat pop song about having fun in the sun. And the good mood doesnt end there, 'your an original' which features lenny kravitz, is a rocked out athem of the future.
Steve McQueen is also a great song that will have you singing along to to chorus all day long. As ever with sheryl, there are reflective songs about past loves, 'over you' is a song that just seems to hit you in the heart. Darker songs such as 'weather channel' show some amazing song writing and even better arrangement.
The album has a host of special appearances from the likes of lenny kravitz, liz phair, stevie nicks and don henley. Heck even gwneth paltrow gives it a go, but dont let this put you off, never is sheryl overwhelmed, this is most definitely HER album.
Overall an excellent summer album that you wanna play loud in your car with the top down. The only down side is that there is nothing originally new, but then her music is so good anyway!
its an album that sounds like you've been listening to the songs for years, and love them!
