5.0 out of 5 stars The Crows are growing up, 3 Feb 2000
This review is from: This Desert Life (Audio CD)
On the live CD "Across the wire" Adam Duritz says that they "now know how to play their songs" Well he sure is right.Having got this album at Xmas I decided to let it sink in before writing a review.Too many reviews are written after only one or two plays,but the crows deserve better.This is a superb album and can hold its own with any of their previous work,yes even August.From the rocking opener "Hanginaround" to the beautifull and haunting "Colorblind" they play with a clarity and togetherness that only great bands can do.Duritz's vocals are,as ever,wonderful and his songwriting gets better and better.Are their many singers who can put so much angst into their singing? The other highlight other than the two already mentioned is "I wish I was a girl" absolutely brilliant.It would be unfair to ignore the other tracks so buy the album and give yourself a treat,and if you are new to the band buy all their other albums too. By the way if you are thinking that they are just for trendies think again....I am a 43 year old grandaD!
