励志题材的作品一直不曾在Sheryl Crow的专辑中缺席。9月全新发行的这张《Wildflower》，从名字上就已经直奔主题。同名主打歌，正是写给其男友——七届环法自行车大赛冠军Lance Armstrong的，据Sheryl自己介绍说，这首歌其实是Lance与他的孩子带给她的写作灵感，旨在表达一种无常的生活状态中， 像“Wildflower”般无处不在的、平凡而坚强的人。另外一首主打歌《Good Is Good》同样积极向上，这不禁让人联想到她上张专辑《C'mon C'mon》中的主打歌《Soak Up The Sun》，两者之间，似乎有着一种心领神会的联系，无论是“Good is good and bad is bad/You don't know which one you had”还是“I′m gonna soak up the sun/Gonna tell everyone/To lighten up”，总是会燃亮起希望的火光，让人因此而动容。能够赢得了乐迷十年来从不间断的支持，取得口碑与市场的双重肯定，这张专辑再度证实Sheryl Crow的音乐魅力无须怀疑。

Since her 1993 debut, Tuesday Night Music Club, Sheryl Crow has been churning out unassailably appealing CDs in an unassailably appealing voice. Which means, according to the rules of the pop music cosmos, by album six it's about time for a misstep. Natural law, fortunately, will have to keep checking its watch. Wildflower moves Sheryl Crow one step closer to Hall of Fame status as she shunts the established rock star's impulse to get all experimental, but instead sprawls, rambling rose-like, across the substance-spiked pop landscape she helped pioneer. Three ingredients, glistening vocals, flawless production, and catchy songs rub up against one another in all the right places. These ingredients will cause you to hold your breath on the beautiful piano ballad "Always on Your Side." They pop up again on the George Harrison-esque "Where Has All the Love Gone" reminding you that Crow can reflect and reveal as convincingly as she can rock. If there is a ripple that runs through Wildflower, it's a pensive one. On the spacy "Chances Are," she sings of being "...lost inside a daydream." The measure of her talent, ripe and reappraisal-resistant, is her ability to consistently bring us inside the bubble with her.
