4.0 out of 5 stars Wake Up The Congregation.... 16 Sep 2014
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome Back! 17 Sep 2014
By A. Marczak TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait 20 Sep 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
The seven year wait was worth it - "Somewhere Under Wonderland" is a fabulous album. A classic mix of upbeat and retrospective songs, its sound is very much Counting Crows and sure to be a fan pleaser. "God of Ocean Tides" is absolutely sublime.

4.0 out of 5 stars Counting Crows - Possibility Days 15 Sep 2014
By Red on Black TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
There are those who heard "August and Everything After", Counting Crows legendary debut upon its release in 1993 who never really got over it. This was a record that somehow defined musical space and time, capturing a certain spirit of the age. "August" was so impactful that even excellent follow up albums by Adam Duritz and co were overshadowed by its breadth and depth. Thus when poorer fare followed over the more recent period, such as a Marmite concept album (Saturday Night & Sunday Mornings), an ok covers album and a range of "live" albums, many shifted their gaze elsewhere.

"Somewhere under Wonderland" is the Crows first album of new material since 2008 and whilst no match for their debut it is a record that is a rich palette of sounds. Duritz's song writing once threatened to be the missing link between Springsteen and Van Morrison and there are times on this album where past glories are rebooted. The long opener "Palisades Park" is essentially a eight minute suite of songs which for some reason brings to mind Joni Mitchell circa "Hissing of Summer Lawns". It is a sort of musical kitchen sink replete with a jazzy trumpet opening, Duritz's hurt vocal and wordy lyrics plus standard rock segments which push the song along. Repeated listens confirm a well planned if loose construction which despite its intricate nature is very endearing. Even better is the slow blues of "Scarecrow" which starts with a Drive by Truckers riff and builds into a commendable rootsy rocker. The later "John Appleseed's Lament" is probably the track with the nearest feel to the preoccupations of "August" and is punctuated by some lovely guitar work. When Duvitz strips everything back on "God of the Ocean Tides" he confirms his status as a top grade songwriter and reminds us that "less is more".
