Allmusic.com gave The Sky is Crying a 4 star review:
The posthumously assembled ten-track outtakes collection The Sky Is Crying actually proves to be one of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s most consistent albums, rivaling In Step as the best outside of the Greatest Hits collection. These songs were recorded in sessions spanning from 1984’s Couldn’t Stand the Weather to 1989’s In Step and were left off of the LPs for whatever reason (or, in the case of Soul to Soul’s “Empty Arms,” a different version was used). What makes the record work is its eclectic diversity — … Vaughan makes the material resonate, and in light of his death, “The Sky Is Crying” and the touching survivor-story ballad “Life by the Drop” are two of the most moving moments in Vaughan’s oeuvre.
