iTunes Editors' Notes

San Francisco’s Counting Crows’ debut album was a classic rock radio programmer’s dream. Finally, here was a collection of hook-heavy tunes delivered by a singer who’d studied his Dylan-Van Morrison-Jagger phrasings and whose backing ensemble knew how to judiciously apply organ, piano, acoustic and electric guitar to a no-nonsense backing groove. The formula seems so simple and obvious, but then why are there so few albums as immediately impressive as 1993’s August and Everything After? The answer here is songwriting. The album contains an overabundance of magical ideas, from the opening, unwinding drama of “Round Here” that suggests Springsteen at his most lyrical and theatrical, through the Band-Van Morrison jaunt of “Omaha,” the rollicking yet yearning “Mr. Jones” and the moody life-or-death introspection of “Perfect Blue Buildings,” “Anna Begins” and “Sullivan Street.” Counting Crows were a group who looked to do it all. The confidence can be heard in the band’s loose swagger and its intricate weave of accordion textures that never tip the group too far into the Americana graveyard where many traditionalists accidentally tilt their fortunes.

Customer Reviews

Over and Over and Over and Over

I was living in Thailand when this album was released and it was one of the only cassettes I owned at the time....yes, I said cassettes. Anyway, I would listen to it constantly and on long trips to Malaysia for a new tourist visa, I would listen to it for hours at a time, over and over and over again. I NEVER got tired of it and to this day it is one of my favourite albums of all time - every song is worthy!

For sure one of the 10th best 90's album !!!

Absolument incroyable, un voyage bénéfique à travers les mélodies enjoleuses de chacunes des chansons qui composent cet album.

My favorite of all time

This is my personal favorite album ever. Never get tired of listening to it. I like every single song. Wonderful!!

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...
