Product Description

Amazon.ca

It's amazing the difference a year makes. Upon its release, August and Everything After sounded remarkably fresh, a welcome change from the crunch and screech of grunge. Blending the vocal athleticism of Van Morrison with the moody rock of The Band, the Counting Crows turned on a whole legion of fans turned off by modern rock. But what sounded fresh soon became stale as dozens of bands flocked to the radio with euthanised versions of the Counting Crows' sound. But you shouldn't hold that against the Crow boys. August and Everything After is a fantastic rock album. Though "Mr. Jones" was the money-maker, the disc features such stand-out cuts as the dark lilt of "Anna Begins", the morose "Rain King", and the outstanding U2-meets-Grant Lee Buffalo anthem "Murder of One". Maybe time, and another listen, will heal the damage wrought. --Tod Nelson

Nothing but praise here, especially at Amazon's discounted price of $43 for the Analogue Productions 45rpm double album. Flat and quiet pressing with beautifully reproduced cover and interior art. And the sound? Compared to the CD of this played over my Linn Karik transport into a Theta Casablance Extreme DAC it wasn't a fair fight. The vinyl played back via my Linn LP12 threw an enormous soundstage, quiet and full of ambience and air. The unforced detail in the vocals and strings was also very impressive as was the slam in the bass. I find it hit and miss these days whether vinyl will beat CD, but in this case it's not even close. Grab this one before it becomes a collectors' item.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music At It's Best! May 10 2012
By C. Preston TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Counting Crows is one of those steady bands that you just know you can count on for music that your going to love. Such a recognizable band & vocals that you can instantly identify them when you hear them on the radio. Whenever I hear them on this CD it brings me back to a period of time when Friends & Seinfeld were playing on TV, people were going to Bush parties as that's what was cool at the time. Everyone brought Counting Crows camping to blast on the Ghetto blaster (we have to have electricity just for that, but we can just eat cereal out of the box! Ha! Ha!)

1.Round Here: I love this song, a ballad....kind of countryish roots but with rock in the arteries of it. Well written lyrics and I just love the ending portion of the vocal...just caps it off!

2.Omaha: The drums really make this song and I even liked hearing the few strums on the banjo. I think their moneymaker is their ability at lyrical writing. They get to the "heart" of what they wish to convey for sure. Makes you want to pickup & make a road trip to the big O!

3.Mr.Jones: Okay everyone get up on your feet and start cutting a grove...couldn't you just see all the flower children dancing circles at Woodstock if this song had been around back then! Even the "Sha-la-la fits this song! Sounds like he & Mr. Jones had a blast partying it up! Definite a song relating back to a time of youth gone by!

4.Perfect Blue Buildings: My favorite song on this CD; still on my favorite playlist. Just classic Counting Crows to me and one of the best vocals, instrumental construction in combination! Haunting lyrics.......sounds like someone in a state of desperation looking for ways to feel okay again. Some of the best written lyrics!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Round Here" Will Fascinate You July 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
Ever since I got a promotional copy of "Round Here" I became fascinated with this song. The lyrics, the voice, it just makes such a perfect ballad to move anybody's heart.
"She has trouble acting normal when she's nervous..."
"She's always on my mind..."
I don't know why this song never reached the popularity it deserves (people will always see this album as the "Mister Jones'") but hey, just give it a chance!

5.0 out of 5 stars relax, absorb July 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
The first time I sat down to listen to this album, the first song pulled me in. Through the whole CD, I was kind of in this reverie, and enjoyed every minute of it. If I ever sit down and try to work with this album on at the same time, I slowly am pulled away from my work to contemplate the music. What can I say, the music is great, the guitars are great, the vocals are great ( a little on the whiny side, but not whiny), the lyrics are phenomenal, and everything together is inspiring. My favorite track is Round Here, "round here, ...she's...slippin through my hands". What can compare to that line? I highly recommend this CD, or Films about ghosts, since it has many of this CD's songs, except for Raining In Baltimore :(

5.0 out of 5 stars More Than Just Mr Jones June 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD because of the single "Mr Jones" which has everything a great rock single needs - a catchy melody, great lyrics, a lead singer to perform them and of course a fine production. This song alone is worth the whole album.
I must admit it took me some time to get into the other songs, ( I guess they were a little overshadowed by "Mr Jones" ) but eventually the other songs began to stand out on their own ; "Round Here" ( great song and thought-provoking lyrics ), "Omaha" ( great melody - could have been a Neil Young song), "Perfect Blue Buildings" ( for the beautiful melody and gloomy lyrics ), "Time and Time Again" ( a Rolling Stones type ballad ) and "Rain King" ( catchy chorus - REM inspiration? ); in fact there are no weak tracks on the album.
Great that classic rock acts like REM and Counting Crows are still here.

5.0 out of 5 stars don't let one star reviews bring you down June 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
I can't say anything here that hasn't already been said so I won't. This album changed me from a pop music freak to a true music lover. One of the most original things to come out of the 90s it deserves a place in anyone's collection. If you happen to become a Crowhead like me then more power to ya.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Going Strong 11 Years Later... June 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD in 1993 when it originally came out and it is still a permanent fixture in my player. Adam Duritz's raw, original sound never ceases to amaze me and his emotionally charged lyrics still move me every time I listen to this album. I like a lot of their newer albums as well, but this one will always be my favorite. I'm going to see them play this summer and I saw them last July with John Mayer. It's incredible how equally great they sound live. If you don't already own this album, I highly recommend picking it up as soon as you can!
