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.

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.

After a rather weak Saturday Morning and an enjoyable covers album I was worried they may be past their prime. Not a bit of it. Perhaps their best album to date with all the classic elements from August through to Hard Candy in one refreshingly short album. Its everything the recent Arcade Fire juggernaut isn't. No filler, not a weak song, in fact not a weak second anywhere on this album. A text book example of how to write an album without trying to fill up the CD space. Superb production to boot with the twin guitars just coming alive through the speakers. Adam's lyrics are back to their finest. My album of the year so far.

Certainly the best Counting Crows album since August & Everything After with a great selection of rock songs with a couple of country.
Its not as good an album as August (very few are) but there are some real gems here.
My only criticism is that the bass drum has been brought far too far forward on quite a few tracks, and can dominate on a system with a fulsome bass output.
Its not too bad on my system, which has floor standing speakers, but isn't particularly bass heavy, and would be absolutely fine via MP3 or on most car stereos, but if you have bass heavy speakers expect to get a few complaints from the neighbours!!

I've long liked this band but let's be honest they've done nothing of any worth since hard candy. So I was very pleasantly surprised by this offering! Few bands who've been going this long find it within themselves to write quality anymore apart from the odd song. This however is a great album and totally back to form. A previous reviewer doesn't like the 8 min first track but I think that's one of the stand outs. Just goes to show how individual a thing music tastes are!

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".
