iTunes Review

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.

Best album in a while but it doesn't touch the bands early work.

Best album in a while but it doesn't touch the bands early work.

"Untitled (Love Song)" is an instant classic, unfortunately it stands head and shoulders above the rest of the album. The album has a much stronger country sound than we have heard from Counting Crows in the past. Personally i find this a little disappointing as for me they have lost a little of their originality in the process.

That being said it is still a solid effort and standout tracks include:

Untitled (Love Song)
All My Failures
Jumping Jesus
Girl from the North Country
Like Teenage Gravity

Back to it

This album has a similar feel to hard candy. There are some old songs that have been on previous albums but they have been reworked.
Its another killer album from the Crows, thanks to the boys for making it right.

Long Wait ...But Great!

New album is brilliant and is what we expect from the Counting Crows. Well done lads.

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 & 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...
