5.0 out of 5 stars This is THE album to have in your collection!!!, 23 Aug. 2006
This review is from: August And Everything After (Audio CD)
To start off with, I would have given this album more than five stars!!!This is the album that changed my music taste completely!!After working in a music store for ages and getting the mick taken out of me because I used to like boy bands, I was eventually introduced to this album-someone was playing it and I thought 'Oh my God, who the hell is that'?! I quickly bought the album and I quickly fell in love with it because it is soooo amazing!! I love the first track, 'Round Here' because it starts off relatively quiet but then by the end, its all go-its a really good track to get into!! I think these guys are amazing and Adam Duritz is so clever-the lyrics to every song were just like nothing I'd ever heard before, but the music won me over aswell;everything from the guitars to the percussion is fantastic! I love 'Mr.Jones' because its really upbeat and happy-its a great track to listen to! My other favs are 'Anna Begins' (totally amazing), 'Rain King' (another funky upbeat number), 'Sullivan Street' (slower tempo, with a lovely piano melody and Maria McKee on background vocals-the two voices compliment each other perfectly), 'Raining in Baltimore' (a bit of a ballad and I love it-its a fantastic song.) and 'Murder of One' (a brilliant song to finish the album on-upbeat and great!!).

Counting Crows are my favourite band-I owe I lot to them!!This masterpiece of an album has completely turned my record collection around and even though this is their debut album, their follow up albums have been just as good-we should all look forward to the release of their (as yet untitled) new album in early summer this year! This is an album that I will never get tired of and I recommend that everyone tries it and sees what all the fuss is about!!Its such a great price on Amazon that you can't really go wrong!!

An absolutely blinding album-give it a try!!
