'Be Myself' - Sheryl Crow
Sheryl Crow has been churning out upbeat pop rock songs and heartfelt ballads since the '90s, and she's back with her ninth studio album, Be Myself.
Following up her country debut, Feels Like Home, she seems to have returned to the sound that made us love her: pop rock feels with good songwriting. After so many years in the industry and putting out so many hits, calling the record Be Myself is so fitting. And the track is pretty good, too.
With organs and mid-tempo guitars as the sonic foundation, she effortlessly shows confidence and empowers us to do so as well. Meanwhile, "Halfway There" has some grit with bluesy guitars that tells the guy giving her a headache that he'll need to do his part. The blues vibe continues with "Heartbeat Away" and has that vintage warmth that you'll hear best on vinyl. Be Myself shows how Sheryl has taken all the different sounds she's composed over the course of her career to concoct something that everyone can get down to.
