Counting Crows: Underwater Sunshine (or what we did on our summer vacation)


Great collection of cover songs by the band. I particularly like The Faces' "ooh lah lah" rendition. If you're a fan, you'll love this. If you're not, this is not the album to get in to. They prove once again that they are more than a fad in the pop world, and that they are versatile talented musicians. This album mixes many genres, giving a collage-like sense of where the band comes from influence-wise. I hope they make a new album. I'm not even sure if they're actively together as a 'band' or if it's all Adam Duritz and whoever he wants to play with. Nevertheless, this is a record with feel good vibes from beginning to end.
