Counting Crows has joined the trend of releasing your own bootlegs, made common by Dave Matthews and Pearl Jam, with this 15 track collection culled from the 2003 Crows European tour in support of the Hard Candy album. This is essentially a record for the true fans of the band, the ones who prefer Perfect Blue Buildings to Mr. Jones, the ones who appreciate the subtlety of Holiday in Spain, the ones who know the words to Richard Manuel is Dead. This is not a commercial album by any means, but can be a decent addition to your collection.

Sound quality is quite good for a live recording, the band is tight, and Duritz sounds less strained than he does when I have seen him live. The track selection delves heavily into Hard Candy tracks, which is logical considering this was the Hard Candy promo tour they were on at the time. A few classic tracks are thrown in like Omaha and Goodnight Elizabeth and Perfect Blue Buildings. Each song is performed quite well, Miami sounds especially good as does Richard Manuel Is Dead. Though there are some tracks I would have liked to hear, especially A Long December, I can't be too disappointed considering this was a fairly stealthy release with no massive publicity blitz. This was one released for the fans, not the hook hungry, rabid masses looking for the next commercial sensation. Overall this is a pleasing, relaxing album that makes for nice background music. I consider it a bonus until an album of new material comes out. Recommended for the serious Crows fan...

13 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Mr. S. Wright on 19 Jun 2006
Format: Audio CD
Initially I found this performance an odd choice for a Counting Crows live album. As much as the title 'New Amsterdam' taken from the establishment where lead singer Adam Duritz and Mr. Jones watched girls dance and drink alcoholic beverages, taken from Counting Crows most known song 'Mr. Jones', using a particular place and adding the album title to it, to go along with the fact that the live setting is Amsterdam, I find a bit silly. It's almost like they were trying to bring out an official bootleg to follow along the lines of the many thousand unofficial ones that are available.

It even sounds kind of like a bootleg. There's no fade on either ends of the CD, and the change between the final track 'Holiday In Spain' and the bonus track from a different live setting is very rough and there's no attempt to trick the listener into thinking that there's a difference in venue. Where it certainly isn't bootleg is in sound quality. It sounds great, nothing gets lost really and Duritz's voice is clear and strong for all to hear.

Upon listening to the first track the famous 'Rain King', it dawns on you why they might just have chosen this venue for such a prestigious package as an official live CD...'Rain King' which is one of the more upbeat songs in the Counting Crows catalogue, at least in pace, has been slowed down to the tempo of a 'Goodnight Elisabeth'. Don't get me wrong, this is a good thing. In a way. It sounds superb, but what you get from this is that Duritz is clearly not feeling the song for what it was, much like you got the same feeling on 'Mr. Jones' from their Across The Wire first disc where Duritz changed the lyrics about wanting to be a big star to being f*cked up because his wishes came true.

For Counting Crows fans this will be a must. I find it more similar in style to the 'acoustic' (disk 1) disk of the Across a Wire live album, ie more mellow than disk 2. A good selection of songs, with some of the less well known tracks that true fans may well prefer (Perfect blue buildings is a personal favourite of mine), although Anna Begins is absent (having said that, i'm not so keen on the 'heavy' version of that song, which they tend to play live). Worth every penny.

Only slight downside is the intro to a couple of songs sounding a bit 'weak' (you'll see what i mean), but they all get going after the first few bars. Still 5 stars for a fan.

There is something earthy and basic about this live recording. Right from the first few bars of Rain King it is true Counting Crows style and makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Full to the brim with old favourites (Mr Jones) and now new favourites (St Robinson In His Cadillac Dream)it is the perfect companion and a must for CC fans.

Counting Crows are my favourite band and have been for many years. Its an over-used term but if such a thing as genius exists then Adam Duritz is a genius. This live album is so good, with Adam's vocals dominating. As other reviewers have noted, he pours out his emotions on this album in a way he doesn't on others and I love it. Perfect Blue Buildings is amazing and worth the price on its own. There have been other releases since this, but I still find myself reaching for New Amsterdam. Just brilliant.
