Product Description

Product Description


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

5.0 out of 5 stars "Round Here" Will Fascinate You July 16 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 The best album of all time. March 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought August and Everything after with a group of other CDs because I found "Mr. Jones" very catchy and some people I know raved about them. For a few months I just listened to Round Here anbd Mr. Jones, the album's first and third tracks, respectively. One night as I was getting ready for bed I decided to pop the CD into my stereo and listen to the whole thing while flipping through a magazine. The magazine was quickly forgotten as I stared at my speakers, startled as each song playing was better than the last.
Orignially I would skip number four, "Perfect Blue Buildings," but I think it was in my anticipation to get to number five, "Anna Begins" (a favorite with almost all Counting Crows fans). But now I realize it's as good as the rest of the CD. I'd like to say the highlights are "Anna Begins," "Raining in Baltimore," "Round Here," "A Murder of One," and "Rain King," but that would be lying since every single song on this CD is great. "Mr. Jones," though radio friendly, is one of the weaker songs on the CD, which is saying something, since it's still a solid song. And unlike a lot of rock/pop bands today, the songs are all different. The album flows together well, but the band doesn't continuously use the same chords or rhythms. Adam Duritz's vocals and lyrics, and the band's musical ability let you kow you are listening to a Counting Crow's song, not just one contrived, distictive "sound." Any band would be proud to have written just one of these twelve songs.
I've owned this CD for at least 7 years now, and I still listen to it very frequently. It might even be my most-listened to album.

5.0 out of 5 stars if i could give it six, i would. March 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
this cd changed me. when i first bought it, i bought it like most other people did...after i heard "mr jones" on the radio. i listened to it quickly, and tossed it aside. then one night, it was raining and i was driving to meet a friend, and i popped this cd in to give it another whirl. that was over ten years ago, and i haven't stopped listening to it since.
my personal favorite song on this album is "anna begins". it really has lyrics to which most anyone can relate. "sullivan street", "a murder of one", "round here", "time and time again", " raining in balitmore" and "rain king" are also all great songs. this is a shining example of an album where the worst song on the cd was also the most popular. if you liked "mr jones" i suggest you move past that track and into some of the others.
i have neve posted a reviw of an album before, but when i stumbled upon this one once again, i had to write something about it. counting crows cemented their spot near the top of my all time favorite artists on a rainy night in 1993, and i haven't looked back. buy it, you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than Mr. Jones. Dec 4 2003
By liannai
Format:Audio CD
I had this album when it first came out in the early 90s. (I've since had to purchase it again, I lost the original, but loved this album so much) I wasn't a big music fan at the time, but I think this album is what got me into music. "Mr. Jones" became an instant classic, as Counting Crows were catipulted into the spotlight. But, "Mr. Jones" isn't the only good song on this album, so if there were any fears of the Crows becoming 'One Hit Wonders', this album proved wrong. Songs like "Round Here", "Anna Begins", "Rain King" and "A Murder of One" are very catchy indeed, but also evoke emotion. Each and every song on this album hit a chord with me. "Anna Begins" is one of the best, dealing with a love that the narrator isn't necessarily ready for "I'm not ready for this sort of thing" and "it doesn't bother me to say this isn't love" Duritz sings. While "Perfect Blue Buildings" is sad, as Duritz will "try to keep myself away from me". "Omaha" is another great song, with a pop feel to it, with lyrics like "Hey mister if you're going to walk on water, you know You're only going to walk all over me" while "A Murder of One" claims "all your life, is such a shame, shame, shame" - it stays stuck in your head for days. Simply a great gem to alternative rock world. There isn't a song on this album I don't like, again, if you're just in it for Mr. Jones, you're missing out, Counting Crows is a great band and this entire album is worth purchasing.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best CD from the Best Band Nov. 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
I have to be honest: August and Everything After started out as my dad's CD, but about 3 years ago, I heard him playing it and "borrowed" it. Of course, I've never given it back. This CD is the HOLY GRAIL of all CDs! It starts out with "Round Here," a song so beautiful that I've listened to it close to one hundred times and I'm still not sick of it. I don't think I'll ever NOT want to hear it. Then comes "Omaha." Another GREAT song. Track 3 is "Mr. Jones," the most well known track of the CD. It's well known for a reason. It's one of the Counting Crows' best songs. Then there's "Perfect Blue Buildings," "Anna Begins," and "Time and Time Again." All three songs are wonderful. "Rain King," track 7, is another really well known song. It's really pretty and very catchy. "Rain King" is followed by my favorite Counting Crows' song, "Sullivan Street." "Sullivan Street" is so close to perfect that I almost cried the first time I heard it. I love its background vocals. After that there's "Ghost Train," "Raining in Baltimore," and "Murder of One," three more fantastic songs. I'm so glad I "borrowed" this CD from my dad; it was the start of a Counting Crows collection. My other favorite album is Hard Candy, but truth be told, if you like August and Everything After, you'll like every other Counting Crows creation. And you have to like August and Everything After if you like good music at all.
