Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Across a Wire (Audio CD)
DON'T BUY THIS ALBUM!!! unless you already own all other counting crows albums except Hard Candy, because you won't truely understand the genius involved in the creation of some of the hybrid songs on this album. The first CD adds a beautiful peace to all the counting crows songs as it is mainly acoustic, Adam Duritz is sublime throughout, even if you think you've heard the songs before by looking at the track list, you actually haven't this isn't the usual live album where everything sounds the same but worse for whatever reason like you realise the singer can't sing, I'll tell you this, Adam Duritz sounds even better live as the passion and complexity isn't lost in the recording studio this time. The second CD is far more upbeat with some of the crows songs actually rocked up a little, listen to this on the best music system in your house for every sure detail, and give it the solid 2 hours it deserves with no other distractions, this will be your favourite album after just one listen if you have loved all of the crows other albums, its just perfect.
