    THE GLOBE SESSIONS won the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album and for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical. It was nominated for Album Of The Year. "My Favorite Mistake" was nominated for a 1999 Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. "There Goes The Neighborhood" was nominated for the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance.
    Her first album was studded with talented session men, but Crow's second release found her handling multi-instrumental chores with an ease that established her as a renaissance woman to be reckoned with. GLOBE SESSIONS features some famous friends, like Wendy Melvoin (of Prince fame), Heartbreaker Benmont Tench and producer Mitchell Froom (he's strictly an accompanist here; the multi-talented Crow is sole producer here). The vision presented is solidly Crow's, though. A bit more of a mixed bag than her previous work, GLOBE dips into funky, syncopated material, hard-hitting rock, and rootsy folk-rock. Dylan fans should note that Crow lends her vibrant vocal stylings to a previously unrecorded Dylan tune, "Mississippi." The loose, offhanded feel of this album contrasts her previous, more carefully constructed recordings nicely.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (10/15/98, pp.127-128.) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...Crow de-emphasizes stylistic consistency in favor of unrestrained emotion. The songs often concern broken romances and the extremes to which Crow's characters will go to fix them or just let go..."
