Product Description

SHERYL CROW The Globe Sessions (1998 UK 12-track CD album including the single My Favorite Mistake picture sleeve)

Amazon.co.uk

For some fairly shallow performers, there comes a time when their craft becomes a chore, when scribbling songs for the big follow-up album turns into a black-and-white deadline. Clever composers can almost disguise this ennui, burying it in a smarmy, sunshine-beaming mix. Key word: almost. Ergo, a trial spin through clever composer Sheryl Crow's The Globe Sessions evokes the faintest hint of a feeling that grows stronger with each successive listening--there's no sense that the artist intended this material as anything more than tepid album filler. A conversation with your local supermarket checkout girl would prove far more riveting than Crow's pretentious and all-too-casual observations (set to the tune, it must be noted, of some likable, jangly hooks). "Get out the camera, take a picture / The drag queens and the freaks are all out on the town," she purrs over chucka-chucka choogling on "There Goes the Neighborhood", which is probably what any self-respecting drag queen or freak would mutter once Crow moved in, scrounging for her now-patented vicarious cool. The closest The Globe Sessions comes to any palpable sincerity is during an actually-might've-lived-it, whoops-I'm-in-trouble-again "Mississippi". Even then, Crow drowns the moment in perfectly enunciated syllables, more prissy than alley cat prowling. Crow started out with a credible Tuesday Night Music Club pedigree, surrounded by visionaries such as David Baerwald (For this disc, she relies heavily on ex-Wire Train mainstay Jeff Trott). But they're gone, and things change, to the point where, if you support this silly sycophant with your hard-earned dollars, there's only one question that you'll need to be asked: Do you want paper or plastic? --Tom Lanham

The much-awaited return from Ms Crow after a critically disappointing second album is perhaps her top offering. Opening track My Favourite Mistake is quite possibly her finest ever song, while ample support can be found in underrated singles There Goes the Neighbourhood and Anything But Down. Even a critical mauling can't hide the musical excellence that Crow exemplifies on the multifold excellent album tracks - Am I Getting Through and It Don't Hurt are the best examples, with the latter displaying a guitar solo strongly reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac's The Chain. The collection is mostly self-penned material, with exceptions in covers of Bob Dylan’s Mississippi and a more than passable alternative to the Guns N’ Roses’ Sweet Child O’ Mine. Even the hidden track Subway is rather special.

I was tempted to give this CD 5 stars! If a 4 and a half star rating existed I would give it that. Sheryl's first album, "The Tuesday Night Music Club" was oustanding and just seemed fresh and interesting somehow. Then her 2nd, "Sheryl Crow" was a bit too commercial, as if it was written more to sell records than to really produce good music. It was also a little too heavy for her style of singing. This is much more like it - more her style. Great lyrics - good, catchy but not-too-commercial melodies. And there's real variety in this album. Her version of Dylan's "Mississippi" is superb! It's one of those albums you can put on because you want to listen to 5 or 10 minutes music...and end up listening to the whole album! Again and again. It really is good - and I'm looking forward to her next album now!

Firstly, if i could give this CD 4 and a 1/2 stars, i would.
This was bought for me by my parents after Sheryl Crow did a "blinding" live set at a Stones gig a few years ago, and i wish now that i had been there to see it. "The Globe Sessions" is one of those CD's that everyone has, but no one fully appreciates until later. My favourite tracks have got to be 'Am i Getting Through' (both 'parts'!!), 'The Difficult Kind' and 'Anything but Down', which is a great track to sing your heart out to. I also find the intro of 'Resuscitation' pretty cool,in a 'twangy' way! This is my favourite album to sit and listen to, a great album - sometimes laid back, sometimes full of emotion, and i don't have to get up and press the 'skip' button too often (only on 'Maybe Thats Something'- i'm not sure about that one, but i'm sure it'll grow on me!)
It may not be as good as "Tuesday Night Music Club", but its still damm good!!
I love it.

An awesome display of both musical and lyrical talent, sheryl crow never fails to deliver the best of both. Crows heart felt words take us through the tortures of heartache with sweeping majesty, from "My favorite mistake" which is the sound track to every difficult love affair, to the meltingly sad " Crash and Burn" . However while this makes for an emotional album it never becomes dull but is lifted by the superbly structured music and catchy riffs. A deep, dark exploration of life and love, this is often angry and desperate but oh-so good and should not be missed

I've owned this album for quite a while now and it's one I often come back to. There is a great deal of variety to this album and a nice sense of it not being too commercial. A feeling that these are the songs which Sheryl Crow wanted to write. And she sings them so personally that you can believe it. There are moments in some of the songs which affect me a lot - especially in "My Favourite Mistake" and "Difficult Kind" but there are loads of places where you sit back and are plain impressed...

Sheryl Crow's third album sees the singer happy for the first time in her relativly short career. The country music of 'Tuesday Night Music Club' long gone and only the slightest trace of the boozy rock of 'Sheryl Crow' this album is a middleground. The album is the most personal to date, and to be honest a bit watered down from the usual rocked out stuff, but the album is rich in well written, well performed songs. The opener 'my favourite mistake' is diverse in its lyrics and contains a strong guitar riff throughout. Other songs of note are 'anything but down', probably the best of the whole album. Its a rocky tale of a bad relationship (aren't they all) but you can't help but join in during the chorus. This album contains something for everyone, if you like mellow slow songs you'll enjoy 'riverwide'. If you're more in funky stuff you'll love 'there goes the neightbourhood'. and for the all out rocker, there's 'am i getting through' and 'it don't hurt'. on the whole a good album, well rounded, and maybe thats why's why its not to everyones taste.

I buy a lot of music and I think I can usually spot gem of an album pretty quickly but I was caught by this one. I bought this on the back of liking the previous two outings "Tuesday night bla bla bla" and the self-titled one. I listened to this album once and then filed it under "open in the next century". But one day, last year, just before a long car journey I picked this up and gave it another listen. What an album, what a voice and what a slide guitar! This album is brilliant, a couple of dud tracks at the end but the others more than make up for it. I have no liking for country music but the guitars on this are just awesome. Go and buy it. Strangely enough, It's in my top ten albums along with The Bends, Revolver, LA Woman and Never mind the B*****S!
