  • When the prevailing guitar jingle of "Mr. Jones" cascaded over radio in the early '90s, it was a sure sign that the Counting Crows were a musical force to be reckoned with. Their debut album, August and Everything After, burst at the seams with both dominant pop harmonies and rich, hearty ballads, all thanks to lead singer Adam Duritz. The lone guitar work of "Mr. Jones" coupled with the sweet, in-front pull of Duritz's voice kicked off the album in full force. The starkly beautiful and lonely sounding "Round Here" captured the band's honest yet subtle talent for singing ballads, while "Omaha" is lyrically reminiscent of a Springsteen tune. The fusion of hauntingly smooth vocals with such instruments as the Hammond B-3 organ and the accordion pumped new life into the music scene, and their brisk sound catapulted them into stardom. On "Rain King," the piano takes over as its aloof flair dances behind Duritz with elegant crispness. The slower-paced "Raining in Baltimore" paints a perfectly gray picture and illustrates the band's ease at conveying mood by eliminating the tempo. Most of the songs here engage in overly contagious hooks that won't go away, making for a solid bunch of tunes. Containing the perfect portions of instrumental and vocal conglomeration, the Counting Crows showed off their appealing sound to its full extent with their very first album.

Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (5/13/99, p.58) - Included in Rolling Stone's "Essential Recordings of the 90's."

Rolling Stone (10/28/93, p.76) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...What's most impressive about AUGUST AND EVERYTHING AFTER is how many such moments [of cinematic worlds] there are..."

Uncut (p.94) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Songs such as 'Mr. Jones' and 'The Rain' have a warmth that disguises the more general tone of the lyrics..."

Melody Maker (3/5/94, p.43) - "...awesomely assured, a near-perfect example of that exhilarating mix of soul, R&B, folk, country and rock n' roll that Gram Parsons extravagantly defined as `Cosmic American Music'...."

Mojo (Publisher) (1/95, p.50) - Included in Mojo's "25 Best Albums of 1994" - "A T-Bone Burnett - produced masterpiece awash with echoes of Van Morrison and R.E.M...."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.80) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Singer Adam Duritz's vocals owed a debt to early 70s Van Morrison, not least on the breakthrough single 'Mr. Jones,' while the instrumentation was closer in spirit to The Band."
