Sheryl Crow


Sheryl Crow’s follow-up to 2002’s C’mon, C’mon is a beautiful triumph. Wildflower’s mellow, Eagles-like California sound gave me chills and left me satisfied. The first single, a country-tinged life-appreciating rocker called “Good is Good,” is one of Crow’s best. “I Know Why,” a very pretty love ballad, suggests letting someone into your life even if it’s sometimes painful, while “I Don’t Wanna Know” is a sad, broken love song with memorable lines about “broken souls” and “secret lies.” The track “Where Has All the Love Gone,” a gently melancholy Beatlesesque number, features harpsichord and tambourines. Crow says she is happy with fiancé Lance Armstrong. This album shows both sides of her ongoing love story: the bitter and the sweet.
