This is a review of the vinyl version of the album.

One of my all time favourite albums from the 90's, and in my opinion still the band's best work.
On vinyl it is simply superb. An excellent quality pressing with no background noise, pops or crackles, and made all the better by being at 45rpm. An excellent yardstick of quality for other manufacuters to hopefully take notice of.
The sound quality is spot on. Love it.

Just brilliant, the more I listen the more I like it. Duritz's lyrics are inspired and the musicians are superb. You can get lost in this album, the stories within the songs stimulate the imagination and the music provides the perfect backdrop.

Adam Duritz's vocals are mind-blowing! and the rest of the band accompany him really well. Although this album is 16-17 years old, it doesn't feel aged AT ALL. All the tracks are brilliant and there are no fillers here. 'A Murder Of One' is a perfect way to finish the album.

Highly Recommended for lovers of good music.

Here's where it all began. The band that would change many a life. And you could tell their potential in their debut...
One of the most definitive collections of emo/post grunge rock the early 90s saw. An album which lingers on in the mind (and record players) of many of those who heard it when it was released 9 years ago. Now, any debut album which manages to go multi-platinum is well worth a listen, even if just for curiousity's sake!
The septet (though then only a sextet) truely set the standard for American modern rock and brought the old singer/songwriter magic back which the world hasn't seen the likes of since the 70s.
It combines the beautifully moving songwriting of Adam Duritz with melodious guitars, haunting piano and a flawless rhythm team.
Duritz's songwriting truely deserves a mention here. His songs are honest, emotionally raw and provocatively written in a way which one feels every last emotion and his last grasps of desperation. It is also refreshing to hear a 30-something year old talking about life, loss and loneliness rather than a fresh faced teen. He moves angst to another level. He is a poet, possibly the modern day equivalent of Dylan and Simon.
The musicianship do the songs absolute justice, with guitars which jangle in all the right places, piano with soul and memorable rhythms.
For those who are new to the Crows, "August and Everything After" is a perfect starter kit and an introduction to their music which will leave you gasping for more. For those who have heard other Crows material, this will make it all so much clearer!
Songs to look out for are...the classics Mr Jones and Round Here, the emotionally raw, stunning Anna Begins (songwriting in one of it purest forms) and Rain King.
WARNING: One album, and you'll crave the other 4!

My favourite band. Still fab after 20 years. They seem to get better each year but the first record is still their best. Come back and tour the UK again!!
