iTunes Editors’ Notes

Six years since their last studio album of original material, Counting Crows slip back into their distinctive sound on Somewhere Under Wonderland as if it’s only been a matter of weeks since they last pulled together new material. Singer Adam Duritz’s poetic lyrics rise to the surface on the jazz-inflected opening track, “Palisades Park,” which despite its length of eight-plus minutes was picked as the album’s first single. This old-school artistic ambition (think Neil Young, Bob Dylan)—matched with traditional rock ’n’ roll sounds of electric and acoustic guitars, pianos, organs, bass guitars, and drums—has endeared the group to music fans with an affection for guitars and the album format. “Earthquake Driver” continues the acoustic-poetic path, with “Dislocation” turning up the amplifiers that get a further workout on the Neil Young & Crazy Horse–influenced “Scarecrow.” The album’s nine tracks are exactly what Counting Crows fans expect from the band. (There are 11 on the deluxe edition, which provides acoustic demos of “Earthquake Driver” and “Scarecrow.”)

Customer Reviews

Counting Crows Return as kings...

So obviously I've only heard one song so my opinion has yet to gain any true validation; yet as I listen to the various arrangements of precise instruments and beautiful vocals, I can't help but bet that Counting Crows nail it again! It's amazing that a band that sold so many records with their debut album is barely seen on TV or heard on the radio anymore.

Oh my god.

I can't believe they're coming out with new stuff. I listened to some songs from this album on YouTube, and they sound amazing. I cannot wait til September to get this album! But hey, August and Everything After is the best time to listen to them!

Good

Can't wait to be taken away by another great album:) let's go crows 😃

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...
