Counting Crows

Some critics subsequently dismissed the band as derivative, but other reviewers contended that the group was a creative, talented addition to the rock music universe. As Melody Maker remarked, “Counting Crows are unashamedly steeped in a classic rock tradition, but there's nothing stale or hoary about this music. It's vibrant and alive, bright and brilliant in the here and now.” While critics bickered about the merits of the album, music fans came down solidly in favor of the band, making August And Everything After one of the best-selling albums of 1994. In 1996 the band released a second album, Recovering The Satellites, that received a predominantly warm reception from critics and fans. ~ Musicianguide: Counting Crows ~ retrieved August 1, 2013 © Musicianguide
