Fuck yes, also don't tell my friends I've been rocking out to Sheryl
A lot better than I expected
A great album! She's basically the female tom petty. A liberating and sometimes heartfelt album.
I think Sheryl Crow is under-rated as a singer/songwriter. Vocally, she's like a perfect combination of all 90's female vocalists - Gwen Stefani, Shania Twain, that lady from Garbage - but still uniquely her own. On the songwriting front, her stuff is still "poppy" and accessible, but not cookie-cutter or predictable. It's too bad Run, Baby, Run isn't more well-known. It's a great tune. Also, this brought back memories of playing "All I Wanna Do" on my bass guitar - one of the first things I taught myself how to play.
I'll admit it--I snoozed on this album the day this system presented it to me. Listening now, a day later, and I have to say it's great. Classic singer-songwriter music, but with surprisingly wide-ranging influences and overall a really fun listen.
Saved Prior: None Off Rip: Run Baby Run, Leaving Las Vegas, Solidify, The Na-Na Song, Wha Can I Do For You Cutting Edge: Strong Enough, Can't Cry Anymore Overall Notes: Actually liked this one a good bit. Kinda felt like junk food in comparison to the other albums we've been listening to in that it didn't take that much focus to enjoy, but still pretty good.
A bit surprised by this one, but I loved it. Very close to a five but the middle was weaker than the start and finish. Still an album I would absolutely come back to Saved: Run, Baby, Run; Leaving Las Vegas; I Shall Believe
I GOT THIS ON MONDAY WACK! but it has some chill songs
I had always associated Deep Purple with smoke on the water and a simple uninspired sound, but I was very wrong. They definitely listened to some Hendrix before writing this album because I can see a lot of the influence. Really enjoyed the synths throughout the record. I also like how the vocals feel like an instrument harmonizing with the rest of the band, rather than overpowering the whole song.
I have tried listening to Sheryl Crow before and feel that I ought to like her. I gave this a good go, but just came, yet again, to the conclusion that I don't.
Just ok Well made but pretty vanilla really
Meh - middle of the road country / rock cross-over. Why did this make the list?
Más allá de que el disco es de 1993, ella en mi cabeza es muy representación de los 90s. Tengo taladrado en el hipotálamo 'Soak Up The Son' (video de ella tocando la guitarra en la playa con surfers. Esa información ridícula que mi cerebro recuerda). Ese tema no está en este disco pero es el que más recuerdo de ella, obvio que está su versión (muy buena) de 'Sweet Child O' Mine' y el mega mega meeeeeeeega hitero "All I Wanna Do'. El tema que más me gusta el disco es 'We Do What We Can'. Buena letra y lindo quilombo sonoro. El disco es un círculo perfecto. ¿Lo escucharía nuevamente? Probablemente no pero 'All I Wanna Do' si aparece en la radio, te la canto a los gritos. 8 de 10 ludomatics.
Le nom de cet album tombe à pique puisque je voulais justement aborder un sujet qui crée des sueurs froides à Robert en ce moment. Vous avez sans doute remarqué que je participe depuis quelques semaines à des soirées karaoké (j'ai d'ailleurs gagné la dernière et remporté la somme de cinquante euros en bons d'achat). Si l'ambiance y est évidemment excellente, un énorme problème se pose : le septième commandement de Robert (« 7. Tu n'écouteras les albums qu'après leur génération, quand bien même tu les connaîtrais déjà ») est soumis à rude épreuve pour ne pas dire totalement violé à chaque fois dans la mesure où de nombreux tubes encore non-générés parviennent chaque semaine à mes oreilles. Robert m'appela donc ce jeudi matin pour me demander des explications et pour la première fois, je décidai de lui tenir tête ; hors de question pour moi de renoncer à ces soirées. Robert a d'ores et déjà annoncé vouloir m'appliquer des sanctions et projette dans un premier temps de geler mon enceinte JBL, je vous tiendrai au courant de la suite des évènements.
Disappointing. Like some songs, but a few stinkers on there (e.g. na-na song). All I wanna do is great though. 2.7
Well. Wanted to like this. I love her voice and her popular songs are catchy as shit, but the rest of the album was just, meh. Wasn’t really wowed, but also didn’t hate it. Just, MEH
surprisingly really enjoyed this album. thought Leaving Las Vegas and Strong Enough back to back was really great. I always forget that Sheryl Crow is older than you think (was in her 30s in the early 90s) - which makes some of the references to the 60s in the songs make a lot more sense.
Sheryl’s got some hits, some songs with lots of sing-a-long-ability. But as an artist she just doesn’t resonate with me or evoke any powerful feelings. She evokes mediocre feelings at best. No catharsis, some fun. That’s it. And what is with the name of this album?? It’s so hokey.
I had a predisposition to not like this - sure I've heard the singles which were fine - but I remember reading an article a few years after its release about how Crow was either claiming exclusive songwriting or dismissing others' contributions to it. I realize that should have nothing to do with enjoying an album or not :D but it kinda does... (anyways it's all disputed anyways so who tf cares) but Sheryl is starting from behind the blocks already as I put this on... But ok I admit this first song "Run, Baby, Run" is great - some really nice subtly-different chord changes; probably ends up being my favourite song on the album. After that it's fine - I went back and forth almost within each song. Sometimes her voice is a little shrill and hard to take, other times I really like it. The music is varied and put together really well but for me overall it's just "nice" - probably deserves more than a 3 and I could see people loving it (could i equivocate more?) - ok summing up with: "worth a listen". 7/10 3 stars
Sheryl has a nice voice and you probably have to have been living under a rock not to know her hits. The upbeat poppy tunes are fun and easy to listen to, but the sad and slow tunes are a miss for me. Overall it was alright, I liked the opening tracks and All I Wanna Do is a good tune, otherwise fairly unremarkable singer-songwriter fare.
A fine pop-rock album from a talented singer/songwriter that paid her dues. However nothing here makes me believe I'll listen more than this one time. 3 stars
“Excuse me, record company executive, sir - I’m a young artist and I’d like to know how to make a record whose songs will be played over grocery store PA systems for the rest of all time.” *Record Executive hands young artist a copy of Tuesday Night Music Club* End Scene.
Agradable, un disco genérico con buenos momentos de pop americano. Pero nada mas.
Just nicely plods along being nice and ploddy.
Que dificil me es escuchar Sheryl Crow, no porque sea mala sino porque lo que hace jamas resonó en mi. Me suena a musica que deberia sonar bajito en la barra de un var medio vacio mientras lloras porque esa hija de puta te dejo por otro. Me gusta mucho como el organo acompaña de fondo en casi todos los temas. No termino de identificar que genero seria. Como un country medio comercial devenido en pop? Me suena a la antesala a lo que fue John Mayer en Born and Raised. Tambien escucho muchas cosas que despues aparecieron en el album Music de Madonna. Será que esto influenció todo eso? Regardless, todo esta muy en linea de lo que se escuchaba en esa epoca, casi que pasa por un disco de Natalie Umbriglia. Las letras son muy lindas, tambien de la epoca. Can't cry anymore parece escrita por Tom Petty directamente, como punto a favor. Acá nacio la musica para cafeterias? Claramente el disco es bueno, pero no lo escucharia seguido.
Meh not my cup of tea. Besides All I Wanna Do of course
Sheryl Crow was to 90s girl pop/rock what Sarah McLachlan is/was to the SPCA, except one is very meaningful in spite of the depression. California/beach/sunny rock/pop or however one can describe this album is okay at best. If this were reviewed in 1993 and not 2021, the opinion would likely be way more positive. However, if one believes that music should in some way transcend the era in which it was released and remain a positive nostalgic experience, then Tuesday Night Music Club might leave you disappointed. All this listener wants to do is try to move on till the sun comes down and a new album is generated.
Genre: Pop Rock 2/5 Well, here it is: the first real stinker. I’m interested to read the blurb in the book for this one, because there was nothing truly redeemable here at all. This was almost as stale and formulaic as a pop rock album could possibly be, mixed in with some absolutely bizarre production choices. All I Wanna Do is a fine song, but sandwiched in between cuts like Solidify, The Na-Na Song, and We Do What We Can… I shiver at the thought of listening to these again. Skip this one, if you haven’t already.
Some perfectly boring and forgettable singer/songwriter pop-rock. Not unpleasant, but it was a snooze.
2, One jammer on this but the others didn't do much for me
Pretty beige in the most part. Alanis Morrissette without the anger, pain, and lyrical cleverness. Run Baby Run and All I Wanna Do are good enough pop songs, but it's all a bit bland with a couple of real stinkers in there (yes, I'm looking at you, Solidify and The Na-Na Song). 2/5.
I'm not a fan of predictable, formulaic pop and this is Exhibit 1. Move along folks, nothing to see or hear here. It must have been a stretch to include this album in the book.
I gave it a fair shot (Sheryl's voice is pleasant) but... not my genre at all. Couldn't get into the songs/lyrics. A little grating at times.
Apparently Shez has shifted 50 million albums while in comparison Van Gogh's brother took pity on him and bought one of his paintings, his only sale. Go figure huh? And on that, any retail time travel would have to include popping into Arles about 1888, "Vince, I'll take 20 of these my son, how's 20 francs sound"? But I truly digress. Right, I'm feeling massively underwhelmed yet again, what was Dimery smoking with this one? All I Wanna Do is the best song Ricki Lee Jones song Ricki Lee Jones never recorded. It is very cool, great bass line, wonderful arrangement. It's a groove and her voice sounds absolutely nothing like her other tunes, which is why its so good. This is not just about it being the big one hit, it sounds like it came from another artist, another record, another time, another place. And it is superb. The country tinged songs are good, Strong Enough and Can't Cry Anymore, and would have made great Chicks tunes, they'd have really taken them somewhere else. And The Na Na is another lift on the Too Much Monkey Business/Subterranean Homesick/Pump it Up conveyor belt, though Olivia Rodrigo has now done what Sheryl can't do here. The rest, what can I say? Not much. Although I'm sure Aldous Huxley, late of Bloomsbury and Brave New World, would have been utterly bemused to be name checked on this mediocre record. 2 for the Ricki Lee song.
Worse than being incompetent is being boring. Ten times out of ten I'd prefer to listen to a car crash failure that had some ambition over coolly, competently delivered music that neither stirs the imagination nor gets the blood pumping.
It's amazing how well this album has aged. It's just so good. So, so good.
I've loved this album since hearing Strong Enough when I was 12. A masterpiece. She never came close to this again.
I think I’ve heard this album before, but it has been a while. There are a lot of great songs on this and I really enjoyed hearing it again. A close listen to this album makes me realize how great a songwriter Sheryl Crow is.
Really liked no one said it would be easy, what I can do for you, we do what we can. Sheryl crow has a very recognizable voice. Smoky and sultry, enjoy the way she layers her voice for choruses. She has an incredible blend of rock, pop, blues, jazz. This was her debut album. The initial one was scrapped but is leaked on internet. Mental note to find that as she deemed it to be overproduced. This one is definitely raw-just her full-hearted vocals and instrumentals. Incredible album.
I listened to a lot of top 40 radio in the 90's, so I'm pretty familiar with Sheryl Crow's singles, but this is my first time listening to a whole album of hers. I've always found her music pretty inoffensive, but it's never been something I've gravitated towards. I was underwhelmed to be assigned this album today, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. All of these songs are really well written, from the more reflective "Leaving Las Vegas," to the lighthearted "All I Wanna Do." The instrumentation on this album is great too, and I never noticed until today that there's a great use of a vibraslap (at least I think that's what I heard) on "All I Wanna Do." I really enjoyed the funky hook on "Solidify" and the rap-like flow of "The Na-Na Song." I often think of Sheryl Crow as primarily acoustic music, but this album proves that she can do it all. This album was completely under the radar for me, but I thought it was great. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to fire up a doobie, attend a political rally, and blast "Soak Up the Sun."
Great 90s memories. Fabulous collection of songs.
Curioso. Cuando salió el disco, no me gustó nada. Pero actualmente sí. Es muy buena.

no into SC
Yeah, good album
not bad. твёрдое 4/5, душевно.
Brilliant. Two of my all-time favourites (Leaving Las Vegas & Can't cry anymore) and the rest is good stuff, too - though the live acoustic versions are better.
Iznenadjujuce zanimljiv. - Run, baby, run - We do what we can - I shall believe
pleasantly surprised. this was really nice and felt like there was a lot of range ^~^
I like it. Cant lie. I’ll listen to it again.
Pretty good ol' Sheryl is
Her best song is still If It Makes You Happy
Really enjoyed this, will give it another listen again.
Good chilled vibes, liked it :)
Muy molón! Hay algunas canciones que no me mueven tanto, pero tiene un rollazo!
Not bad one!
I enjoyed this way more than I thought I would.
Opening track has some biiiiiiiig Sara Bareilles energy. Strong Enough is a certified banger. Its really interesting to hear her in her release. So much of her sonic landscape feels so different from what it would become. The country elements are there, but its such a pop record. All I Wanna Do is also certified banger status for good reason. We Do What We Can really sticks out on this album. In general a solid album with a set of weird closers.
Full of bangers! Great album
All I wanna do is have some fun...
This is an almost perfect record. I'm giving it a 4. It isn't top notch like the handful of records I'll likely be rating as a 5 here. But it represents a moment, after Grunge brought authentic (no gated snare drums) pop-rock back into the collective consciousness. So, records like this and Counting Crows, Gin Blossoms, etc. were able to thrive in all their organic and human glory. I love Sheryl Crow's voice and had a crush on her because of this record. My sister bought the CD. I stole it from her along with No Doubt's Tragic Kingdom. For sure, Sheryl Crow was important for opening my eyes to how much prettier music can be when there is a femal vocalist. Why she had to work with Kid Rock later on, I'll never know. That's too bad. Her song on the Cars soundtrack is good too.
Way better than I remembered
Solid. There's a handful of great songs on here, the rest are just OK. Only one or two that I legitimately didn't like.
All I wanna do is have some fun?
Such a good album. Several of her biggest hits all in one
Favorite: All I Wanna Do
Sheryl Crow has lovely, soothing voice and casual style that is really attractive. I like the hits and most of the other songs on this album. 3.5 and rounding up.
Always loved this album and Sheryl crow
Oh did I feel all 1990's dancing in the morning spring sun to this. Hadn't listened to the album for 20+ years so needed reminding Sheryl is far more than a one hit wonder. Some great tunes here.
4/13/22 I was more excited for this than was actually realized. My expectations let me down and maybe that’s my fault, but I just wasn’t impressed. The two songs I know I enjoyed but other than those, I don’t really love Sheryl Crow. Favorite song: All I Wanna Do
Listened to on 4/13/22 4/5 Favorite song: Strong Enough, All I Wanna Do Solid bops would recommend
Well I wasn't expecting to like this as much as I did. Some duds but overall pretty surprisingly good. Like 3.75 stars probably.
Leuk luisteralbum. Maar eerder wat achtergrondmuziek imho. Wel mooie teksten en goeie zangeres
A good old fashioned feel good album. I forgot how much I used to listen to this.
Pleasantly surprised by how funky this album was
This was a really fun listen. This is incredibly chill music with the swanky guitar lines, the thumping bass, and Crow's complementary vocals. A great debut.
I am very pleased this album is a part of the list. I listened to the excellent episode of Bandsplained they did on Sheryl and I really came to appreciate her music and career arc. But I had assumed that this would be a situation of one of the best selling albums of the decade with inescapable radio play and music videos on all the time but not critically appreciated. Much like the situation in this book of Shania Twain. Really like All I Wanna Do, Strong Enough and Can’t Cry Anymore. While it’s not on this record, If It Makes You Happy is top 10 (maybe 5) of the 90s.
To be honest I don't really like Sheryl Crow's voice, so I'm a bit biased against this album. That said, the actual lyrics and vocals are well done, so that regains some esteem in my eyes. I want to like this album more than I actually do. Obviously "All I Wanna Do" (fave track) is worth the price of admission alone, but the deep cuts are often solid too--personally I also loved "Leaving Los Vegas" and "No One Said It Would Be Easy." Overall solidly enjoyable but I'd only re-listen to about a third of the album.
I had this on CD. It's pretty much a thing of its time, I guess. It has its moments and I like it but I wouldn't consider it essential.
First things first: All I Wanna Do is a brilliant, brilliant pop song with its evocative imagery and beyond-catchy chorus. (It once caused my exuberantly drunk brother-in-law to attack me and my husband with a lint roller.) That's a lot for the rest of the album to live up to and unfortunately it can't quite reach the bar. But Crow is a talented musician and this is some solid southern country rock mixed with a few other styles (smoky piano ballad We Do What We Can is another standout).
I think I like Sheryl Crow more in theory than in practice. I was excited when this album showed up, because it had been so long since I last listened to it. Turns out maybe the extended time between listens was because I find the album as a whole a bit boring.
What an amazing debut album! I had never listened to this, although I know several of the songs. A great and interesting variety of songs. Absolutely enjoyable listening.
Good album to listen to as I’m doing my laundry and housework. As a songwriter myself I can definitely admire her skills, great story telling. 5 songs in and instrumentally nothing is really sticking out to me. No songs so far have made me go and save them to my designated 1001 albums playlist. “We Do What We Can” is a beautiful ballad with dreading keys, high hats that feel like they are slowly creeping up to you, the horns that pop in and out and not to mention that drum/percussion section in the middle to really elevate the song. Sheryl’s vocals are the strongest for me on this song. Favourites: Solidify, All I Wanna Do, We Do What We Can
Some great songs in here, a little over-produced which seems to cowl her cry at times. Strong Enough and All I Wanna Do are crackers, the later was huge when I was a kid
Liked a lot more than I thought I would
This was a nice surprise, I've always liked Sheryl Crow's singles but maybe have underestimated her in the past. This was a really enjoyable listen, solid album!
Genuint kinda getat
Surprisingly I didn’t hate hearing all I wanna do on this album even though they played it once every 20 minutes when I worked at hyvee. Otherwise the album was better than I was expecting since I’ve never been super impressed by Sheryl crow. The first song was pretty good
Tók ég eftir þessu í gamla daga? Já, en bara All I want to do. Var þetta tebollinn minn þá? Já nei nei. Hvað finnst mér í dag? Fín production, vel áheyrilegt, oft catchy og barasta alveg ágætt, takk fyrir. Hlustaði tvisvar, gæti aftur.
This one surprised me actually. I expected a pretty run of the mill country pop album, and a few songs are kind of exactly that, buts there’s some really good stuff on here as well. Sheryl touches on some pretty heavy/taboo topics with quality finesse. I also enjoyed the R&B and jazz influences quite a bit. 7/10
Beneath the production there’s some cracker songs here.
Sheryl Crow is an icon
Was not too familiar with Sheryl Crow’s works before hearing this album. It was truly the perfect introduction to her. Excellent songwriting, a truly original voice.
