KMA2850 Counting Crows – August And Everything After

Been ages since I spun this album, and I assumed it was gonna be too 1990s for 2019. Nope. Look past Mr. Jones and Round Here, there’s gold in these hills. Of course I still knew every word, every note. Shame it took me so long to come back here, as this was like meeting up with a long-lost friend.

  1. No way, man! I’ve listened to this twice in as many days! Round Here is exceptional… that’s been one of my favourite songs since I heard this album (musta been 96, cause I think Recovering the Satellites has just been released), but there’s so much gold here – Perfect Blue Buildings… Sullivan Street… Omaha… and even though Mr Jones and Rain King maybe don’t do much for me these days, they’re still strong songs. As a whole piece of work, it’s really quite brilliant.

  2. One of the few 90’s bands that I really enjoyed. This is a classic album and always one of my favorites from that era.

  3. I once did a bit on BBC6MUSIC about Thai album in the All Killer No Filler section on a Saturday afternoon. Man I love this album. In my top Ten I’d say


  4. Them there hills are indeed full of gold!


  5. One of my college roommates would play this full blast every early morning after coming home from the bar. I know I’m in the minority but I just can’t get behind this one.
