    I suggest an investment in back catalogue before parting with serious money for Memphis.

    Crow may have an affinity for Southern soul, but she doesn’t necessarily have an aptitude for it.

    Her lack of individuality is brutally exposed by her cover of I Want You Back, where she might as well be performing karaoke. .

    There’s an ease to this record that’s not often heard on Sheryl Crow’s albums and its light touch is thoroughly appealing.

    Crow’s limitless capacity to appropriate various vocal styles is one reason for her massive commercial success.

  • PopMatters

    The Flurry From Missouri dishes out some killer vintage, giving her own songs the Hi Records treatment and throwing in a fab Jacko impression.

    Crow’s take on the style is blandly uninspiring, bereft of the confident charm that made her country pop hits sparkle.

    Nearly every song overstays its welcome; what may have felt like a bunch of great jams in the studio grows tedious over the course of 12 tracks.

  • All About Jazz

    Though 100 Miles from Memphis does not have the brilliance of discs like Sheryl Crow . . . or C'Mon, C'Mon . . . it is a highly enjoyable disc with quite a few memorable moments worth quite a few spins.

    Her singing is so thin it sounds like a boy whose voice has yet to break.

  • Billboard

    A tendency to let the songs run too long notwithstanding, this "100 Miles" is a path Crow was certainly wise to tread.

  • American Noise

    A little bit sultry, a little bit silly and not as cohesive as it should be, Memphis nevertheless demonstrates Crow is wholly comfortable in her own skin—whether anyone else likes it or not.

  • Music OMH

    One listen to the album reveals that, at least in her mind, she’s the genuine article, and that she’s feeling the need to let herself loose.

    Sheryl Crow's seventh album, 100 Miles From Memphis, is impeccably timed.

    Seasoned singer-songwriter [and] cancer survivor . . . Crow opts for a retro-soul makeover on her latest.

    Crow decided to completely revolutionize her sound by taking on the styles of R&B, funk, and even reggae.

  • HiFi Magazine

    Although her latest work doesn’t allow her access to a particular Memphis studio, the pop-country star has no problem recreating the Southern bluesy soul.

  • The Wall Street Journal

    The album is filled with old-school horns, tight vocal harmonies, and bright production that recalls some of the classic records out of Motown and Muscle Shoals.

    Crow's new soul album lacks sparkle.

  • The Journal Star

    Crow's always solid, and she's come up with a couple fine if familiar sounding tunes here with "Summer Day" and "Peaceful Feeling."
