Sheryl Crow's sense of melody, flow, and pop dynamics have served her well since her huge splash with her debut album Tuesday Night Music Club
in 1993, and her bright rock swagger makes her seem a bit like a California version of Chrissie Hynde
: both know how to sound personal and universal in a three-minute single on the radio. This two-disc set collects the most commercial and essential sides from Crow's career, and it includes the hits "Leaving Las Vegas," "All I Wanna Do," "If It Makes You Happy," "Everyday Is a Winding Road," "A Change Would Do You Good," and "Soak Up the Sun," among other key tracks. Put together like this, all in a row, it reveals a pretty impressive pop legacy.
