Possibly my least favourite Crows album. Just doesn't grab me.

I compare Counting Crows to a Hard Candy. You can spin it, twirl it, bite it, and it will still taste sweet, but ultimately it will stubbornly keep its shape and form.

Counting Crows 4th album sounds much like anything that came before. Of the four, it is the most glazed with a pop coating throughout.

Good Time, New Frontier, and Black & Blue are highlights

Good Time figures out how to do a depressing ballad without the Duritz whining

New Frontier is infectious pop and shows another side to the band. Some fans will hate it because it is too pop and happy sounding

It tacks in a little lengthy on the discometer but I think its their 2nd best album narrowly beating out This Desert Life.

The debut and Hard Candy get more spins than their other albums from me. But I stopped listening to this band after Hard Candy

Very good album. Best 10 songs average is 89,7/100 and the album can get very good 90/100. A hit album, I'm counting eight (!) gems: "American girls", "Good time", "If I could...", "Miami", "New frontier", "Black and blue", "4 white stallions" and "Big yellow taxi" all 90/100. And all other songs also good 80-85/100, no lows. Favourite!

Most consistent album since their debut. Hailed as a comeback by many at the time of its release. The hidden track became a surprise hit.

Just too clean. This is basically where they dropped off my radar and into Adult Contemporary territory.
