The track-listing of this budget compilation, released in 2013, isn't too different from Crow's previous best of, The Very Best Of Sheryl Crow
, released a decade earlier.
Whilst this might be an indication that her star has somewhat waned over the last ten years or so, that doesn't disguise the fact that this is a very strong compilation.
It draws heavily on Crow's first four albums (released during 1993 to 2002) namely Tuesday Night Music Club, Sheryl Crow, The Globe Sessions and C'Mon, C'mon. Her post 2002 output is represented by three tracks - a cover of Cat Stevens' The First Cut Is The Deepest which appeared on the 2003 Best Of, Always On Your Side from the 2005 album Wildflower and a song from the Home Of The Brave soundtrack, Try Not To Remember, released in 2007. This means there is nothing from either Detours (2008) or 100 Miles From Memphis (2010).
So although it doesn't include any surprises or overlooked classics, as a greatest hits package it works extremely well, since it contains all the songs (with the exception of Tomorrow Never Dies) that garnered considerable airplay during the 90's and early 00's.
With the release of her new country-flavoured album Feels Like Home
pushing Sheryl Crow back into the spotlight, Everyday Is A Winding Road is a reminder of the considerable quality of her back-catalogue.
