iTunes Editors' Notes

With an album title that twists references to The Soft Boys and Fairport Convention, Underwater Sunshine displays Counting Crows' love for music with covers of songs they've simply always liked. The choices are eclectic and inspired, promoting newer names such as The Romany Rye ("Untitled Love Song"), Coby Brown ("Hospital"), and Dawes ("All My Failures") and established acts like Bob Dylan ("You Ain't Goin' Nowhere," "Girl from the North Country") and The Faces ("Ooh La La"). Singer Adam Duritz is a confessed music geek, and his love for the material is obvious. The band's kinetic energy and intuitive chemistry work through a variety of genres with assurance. Their take on Kasey Anderson's "Like Teenage Gravity" brings out its dark brooding ghost. Pure Prairie League's "Amie" and Big Star's "The Ballad of El Goodo" are good fun and a chance for the band to break out the harmonies. The entire album lets the band enjoy playing for the love of the song, and it shows. Their versions of "Girl from the North Country" and Madonna's "Borderline" are exclusive to iTunes.

Under water sunshine

Classic Crows there is a little bit of everything on this product! You might not like it all but I would bet you like some, good job the moods are intact!!!

Great songs from a great band.

Counting Crows bringing it again the way they know . That original sound is back like in their August and Everything After release.Rock is not dead but alive and kicking with the Counting Crows. A good buy!

You do realize this a covers album right?

Maybe I'm reading into it wrong but the comments on this album so far seem to indicate that you guys don't realize all these songs are covers. None of this is original crows material. That being said it's a fantastic album and the idiot who said "another disappointing album" and that 90's bands are dying off is just ignorant. The Counting Crows have not released a bad album, OLP yes they have gone way downhill since the days of Happiness Is Not A Fish and Spiritual Machines, but the Crows have always released quality stuff that they put their heart and soul into. But back to my main point, this is a covers album, they released it to pay tribute to artists they were influenced by and to help spread the word about new artists they are really into and I think that's a noble thing for any artists to do.

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...
