5.0 out of 5 stars Its what we've been waiting for! 17 Jun 2002
By Beamo
Format:Audio CD
Being a massive COunting Crows fan I was a little worried about the new album. Could it be as good as the previous releases? Yes it can. Starting with the title track, and followed by the new single the latest offering just leaves you crying out for more. I was lucky enough to see them perform at the Astoria on the 12th June where they played several tracks from the album. As always, the were amazing live, playing a few acoustic covers and showing us the energy that can be put into the new songs. As well as the loud rocking songs, the album comes with a few melodious tracks which again are complex and well lyricised. Black and Blue and Holiday in Spain are both great and Miami will almost definately be a song they play live for a long time.
So, why should you buy this album from the UK instead of importing it for less money..? get two extra tracks which are not available on the international release.
While not strides forward from the last album, its a more refined sound which left me gasping for more. Enjoy...

4.0 out of 5 stars Back To Their Best 10 July 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This the fourth studio album from Counting Crows sees them return to their best. After a disappointing third album (this Desert Life) it appeared that the band had runs its course. But you cannot expect a band to produce outstanding albums one after the other and fortunately for us Hard Candy sees them producing the music of a standard laid down by their first two albums (August and Everything After and Recovering the Satelites). Not only does it equal these standards but they have developed. Not necessarily improved on quality, but have certainly taken their sound into a new era. Although not entirely different, and still written from the same writing formula of Duritz, their music has matured to a level of a band that released its debut album almost ten years ago. They are back to where they should be.
A highly recommended purchase for already converted Counting Crows fans, and even possibly for newcomers, although their earlier work provides a much more addictive sound. Well worthy of four stars, a band revived.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive stuff 3 Sep 2004
Format:Audio CD
A friend played me Up All Night which I instantly loved. after that I was curious about what else they had to offer. This album is actually very impressive - there's an array of influences on this album - the most striking is 'Butterfly In Reverse' which could very easily be a Ben Folds song. The rest is mainly American rock at its best although has some great mellow moments (Carriage). Dont let the cheap cover version of Big Yellow Taxi put you off. Highlights include: American Girls, Good Time, If I Could Give All My Love (which is laden with Beatles influences), Butterfly In Reverse, Carriage, Up All Night.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different Class 25 Aug 2006
By Scully Bloke VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had never come accross the counting crows before I found this album. But it is very very good. Mellow Rock. Goodnight LA has become one of my favourite songs. The title track Hard Candy and American girls I understand are now classic Crows tracks. And the song that introduced me to them, their rendition of Joni Mitchells Big Yellow Taxi is just different class.

A truly remarkable album, that really brought the Crows fame in Europe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mature, confident, brilliant 10 July 2002
Format:Audio CD
The Crows have come a long way since 'August and Everything After' and have produced their best-sounding record to date. While some of the simplicity and innocence that made their first album so appealing is still here, it is the virtuosity of producer Steve Lillywhite that really lifts 'Hard Candy' into the stratosphere of great rock albums. The song 'Hard Candy' is their best opening number since 'Round Here', and this is only the beginning. This album is light of touch, refreshing and meaningful and you can tell a lot of thought has gone into it - even the cover art is fantastic. Adam Duritz's voice is on top form and much mellower than his previous, emotionally charged performances. This album will hopefully attract new fans to a band which has never compromised its creativity while producing beautiful music. And the hidden track is a recognisable gem but I'll leave you to hear it.

The immense talent that makes up Counting Crows never ceases to amaze me, they are absolutely FANTASTIC and they show this in this CD, a masterpiece. The thing I love so much about Counting Crows is that they condense every feeling possible to humans and those feelings we get doing such, small and insignificant things that please us so much. From the falling of autumn leaves to watching the sun rise as a new day starts to feeling the chill of winter, the Crows make us feel it all. They capture every aspect of life and the essence of nature and combine all these things into beautiful, soul searching music that is absolutely god damn fantastic.
This CD shows no faults as the band go on to develop their talents and it is a CD that has something for everyone and no matter how you are feeling, listening to this CD brings sunshine into yor life.
The best tracks, absolutely all of them, I can't fault any of them, it is such a marvellous album, a complilation of life, so buy it and I guarantee if you are not a fan you will become one and if you are, then you can delight in the best music around and make your passion for the Crows triple, at least!!

CD was described as Used - Very Good. CD was scratched badly and did not get past track 5. Will have to be resurfaced. Only 1 star because I love this album!

2.0 out of 5 stars soft and sugary
Counting Crows have often been on the verge of tilting too far into the soft rock or even pop of the 1960s and 70s. This time they have gone completely overboard. Read more
