iTunes Review

By pairing plaintive songs with Adam Duritz’s supple, shape-shifting vocals, August and Everything After hits a recipe that feels both timeless and contemporary. With ringing chords and insistent grooves, “Omaha” and “Mr. Jones” are immediately inviting, but even in their poppy moments, Counting Crows always sound like a bunch of guys jamming in a living room. The band echoes R.E.M. in the impressionistic portraiture of “Round Here” and the jangly rushes of “Rain King”, while Duritz takes Van Morrison’s cue with the empathetic, unpredictable vocal expressions of “Anna Begins”.

Customer Reviews

A Classic

This 1993 album has stood the test of time. It's a classic. Beautiful, sad, moody melodies and haunting lyrics, especially in 'Omaha', 'Sullivan Street' and 'Raining in Baltimore'. Much better than their newer stuff.

A Must Have

Few albums defy time and this is one of them. The lyrics and emotion that can only be produced by Adam Duritz speak to us all, of us all. At sometime of our life, melancholy hits everyone and this album rings true of those times. It has been said that this is Counting Crows best album, for now this maybe true but this hasn't meant they still can't produce great songs. Many of their later albums have great tracks but for me one stands above all and it is a wonder it is not widely known. That song is 'Holiday in Spain' and for anyone escaping a bad relationship 'Holiday in Spain' is an Anthem. Check it out on their 'Hard Candy' album.

Good but perfected on across a wire

This is a really good album. The biggest problem really is that the band worked on most of these songs on "across a wire" and every single track has been improved. However the album still contains two highlights: the original version of mr jones which is upbeat vs a sadder tale on across a wire and perfect blue buildings which is one of the best songs about addiction that i've ever heard. Life is short, get it and then get across a wire.

With their angst-filled hybrid of Van Morrison, the Band, and R.E.M., Counting Crows became an overnight sensation in 1994. Only a year earlier, the band was a group of unknown musicians, filling in for the absent Van Morrison at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony; they were introduced by an enthusiastic Robbie Robertson. Early in 1993, the band recorded its debut album, August and Everything After, with T-Bone Burnett. Released in the fall, it was a dark and somber record, driven by the morose...
