Although he looked to Van Morrison and Bob Dylan for inspiration, Adam Duritz wrote melancholy lyrics more in sync with the world-weary perspective of post-grunge rock & roll. ~ Allmusic: Adam Duritz ~ retrieved August 1, 2013 © Allmusic

Counting Crows

Released in the fall of 1993 - smack in the middle of the alternative grunge boom - the Counting Crows' debut album August And Everything After sounded like a blast from rock's more organic, rootsier past. Dreadlocked frontman Adam Duritz managed to simultaneously draw comparisons to Bob Dylan and Van Morrison with his literate songwriting and soulful vocals, while the band's music seemed tapped from the same Americana wellspring that nourished the Band. ~ Rolling Stone: Counting Crows ~ retrieved August 1, 2013 © Rolling Stone

Counting Crows ~ Gee ~ Named one of the 500 Songs That Shaped Rock & Roll in 1995.
