Counting Crows were without doubt the best band to come out of the 90s for me with August & Everything After, their debut setting the bar so high. However whilst they have produced a string of great albums, both studio and live (and I have some stunning boots as well), they have never achieved the total brilliance of that first album, that is UNTIL NOW.

Adam Duritz has always possessed a soulful voice, and when on form can wring every drop of emotion from a lyric, (watch and listen to August And Everything After - Live From Town Hall [Blu-ray] [2011] if you want proof!), and here on this new studio album of fresh material we hear him doing just that. the opening trumpet on Palisades Park soon gives way to an outstanding song, both lyrically and performance wise. Perhaps the lyrics are where the secret lies as they as good as anything he's ever written on this album, sometimes achingly beautiful and delivered if you understand my expression. If you are a fan of the band then buying this is a no-brainer; if you are new to the band and want to hear modern US rock just about as good as it gets, then buy this.

Packaging is a fold-out cardboard sleeve with the CD one side and a 24 page booklet the other with all the lyrics etc - no horrible plastic box, so well done guys.

As much as I thought there were some good things about 'Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings', my overall impression of it was of a band just trying too hard to give the impression of making something different, and of trying to convince themselves of their relevance. There are no such worries this time around, and what is pleasingly apparent right from the word go about Counting Crows 'Somewhere Under Wonderland' is the freedom they are playing with. I would compare it to 'This Desert Life' as it shares a similar playful mood and sense of adventure, in what is the Crows strongest album for some time. It's noticeable the absence of any songwriting credits, musically, for Charles Gillingham & David Bryson, and it suggests that there has been some kind of shift in band dynamics. Whatever the reason, all that matters is that Counting Crows are back and on form.

Phew...an album by an old favourite that hasn't left me feeling what the hell has happened to some of the truly great established bands, one or two have made reference to this being the best since "August and ..."...I agree, completely agree, the most noticeable and distinctive element being Adams words and his voice, they are back and oh how sublimely.

Let's face it these guys are now well and truly middle aged, it is after all 21 years since "August...." blew us away, and it is therefore inevitable the album is littered with songs that reflect back on the way life has shaped the way they are today, Duritz makes it all so clear when he sings "The best part of a bad day is knowing it's OK", welcome to getting older Adam, and the whole album is strewn with gorgeous one liners that make you smile as the album plays along, bye bye writers block.

Musically the album makes me think of "The Big Pink", in some ways even more than earlier Crows albums, lots of piano, wonderful guitar textures, moments of rocking out, the music weaving along as Adam tells his stories, it feels like virtually the whole of the states gets a mention at some point or another, the journey being the essence lyrically, both physically and emotionally, even Leicester Square gets a mention.

I will be honest, with all these live albums and the covers album , I thought they had reached their sell by date, oops, wrong call.

Minor criticism, the production, its a bit flat, bit squashed, if a vinyl version is available(?) I shall buy it, this is great music, it deserves to be heard in as good a format as possible.

After a covers album (Underwater Sunshine (or What We Did on Our Summer Vacation)), which was extremely enjoyable to listen to, but highly unoriginal, it's a treat to hear some fresh material from Counting Crows. The tone of the music has strayed distinctly Country since Saturday Nights and Sunday Mornings, and it's true that this is a short album by most bands' standards. Having said that, there is not a weak track on the album, and you can hear echoes of the classic tunes from August and Everything After.

They show no signs of weakening, and these tracks will add to their legendary live performances. Welcome back!

Crows fans are getting use to a six year gap between new albums of original material, there was a six year gap between Hard Candy and Saturday nights and Sunday Mornings, and the same period to Somewhere Under Wonderland, maybe that's how Adam Duritz manages to keep the standard of hs song writing so fresh and to such a high standard.

In my opinion this album is their best since the brilliant 1996 release Recovering the Satellites, it opens with the epic, almost Springsteen esque Palisades Park, but like on many of the Crows albums it's the slower acoustic numbers that showcase Duritz's song writing the most, and in God of Ocean Tides and Possibility Days there are two to rival anything he has composed over the past 20 odd years.

For me they have always been my favourite band, I strongly recommend this album.....roll on 2020!
