Wow, the marmite of albums judging by the comments. I actually liked this album and like this album now. My favourites are Round Here and Anna Begins. Yes it is all a bit overly sentimental but that doesn’t change the fact it is a good album. Enjoy!

Along with Blues Traveler, this band (and especially this album) represent the worst music of the decade.

Adam Duritz and is stream-of-consciousness-lyrics! Counting Crows are most known for this album and at the time time it sounded so unique and different than other bands.

Later, with each subsequent release we come to find that this is really all the Crow's can do. And Duritz's sad sap, me against the world and women schtick gets harder and harder to listen to as he gets older and no wiser.

But August and Everything After is excellent.

Round Here is one of my all time favorite songs and a stellar opener flexing the lyrical muscle of Duritz with lines such as "step outside the front door like a ghost into a fog where no one notices the contrast of white on white". Excellent.

Anna Begins is the next standout. Omaha, Mr Jones, Rain King, Murder Of one, Sullivan Street are all excellent.

Time and Time again and Perfect Blue Buildings are good but meander for too long

Ghost Train and Raining Baltimore are bland meh.

A classic release in the 90's and now with some time added on it is still excellent but not a masterpiece.

Adams Duritzs choice of lyrics and melody stand out on this record.

This is the album I think most of the teenagers in the 90's had in their houses, or that's my thought, but it sounds bland sometimes. If thi album lasted only 40 minutes or so it would be greater, ohhh the lyrics

I'll admit that I like Mr. Jones, although it might just be because of nostalgia and the fact that whats-his-name's voice harkens back to a very specific period in music. The rest is pretty worthless though - unexcited, unadventurous 90s rock filled with clichés and phrases that sound meaningful but are really just pandering to people who think namedropping Elvis and Jesus makes a song good.

Piffle. This was confirmation that the musical revolution of 1991 would be quickly taken over by "safe" acts with the right name and look but none of the songwriting chops.
