Its what we've been waiting for!,
This review is from: Hard Candy (Audio CD)
Being a massive COunting Crows fan I was a little worried about the new album. Could it be as good as the previous releases? Yes it can. Starting with the title track, and followed by the new single the latest offering just leaves you crying out for more. I was lucky enough to see them perform at the Astoria on the 12th June where they played several tracks from the album. As always, the were amazing live, playing a few acoustic covers and showing us the energy that can be put into the new songs. As well as the loud rocking songs, the album comes with a few melodious tracks which again are complex and well lyricised. Black and Blue and Holiday in Spain are both great and Miami will almost definately be a song they play live for a long time.
So, why should you buy this album from the UK instead of importing it for less money..? Well..you get two extra tracks which are not available on the international release.
While not strides forward from the last album, its a more refined sound which left me gasping for more. Enjoy...
