Counting Crows gained popularity following the release of its debut album, August and Everything After (1993). Featuring the breakthrough hit single "Mr. Jones" (1993), the album sold more than seven million copies in the United States. The band received two Grammy Awards nominations in 1994, one for Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal (for "Round Here") and one for Best New Artist.

Album · 1993 · 11 Songs. With ringing chords and insistent grooves, Omaha and Mr. Jones are immediately inviting, but even in their poppy moments, Counting Crows always sound like a bunch of guys jamming in a living room. in the impressionistic portraiture of Round Here and the jangly rushes of Rain King, while Duritz takes Van Morrison’s cue with the empathetic, unpredictable vocal expressions of Anna Begins. August and Everything After Counting Crows.

August and Everything After' - released 20 years ago today, on Sept. 14, 1993 - is the band’s high-water mark, and it doesn't sound a day older than it did when it was released. That's a testament to both Burnett's old-style production techniques and the sheer strength of the nascent band’s songs. The San Francisco-based Crows launched their career with a collection of stripped-down, country-inflected acoustic folk-rock tunes, and arriving at a time when amplifiers couldn’t have been louder and grunge ruled the airwaves, it was an outlier to say the least.

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.

This is what an album is supposed to be all about. The songwriting is as good as you'll find anywhere, taking you on a 51-minute hypnotic ride that has a dramatic flair unlike any other. August and Everything After is possibly the most poetically beautiful and angst-ridden album ever made other than Dark Side of the Moon. It's a true literary achievement, in the backdrop of achingly wistful tones. Everything about the Counting Crows' debut album is spot on — though in an imperfect way, for in art we find that perfection is borne out in sporadically-placed imperfection. That has never been more evident as here. Note the blotchy writing on the cover. It's perfectly imperfect, just like the CD it houses.Among all its virtues, perhaps the most striking of August and Everything After is the nonchalance inherent throughout the tracks, where the mood has plentiful time to simmer and then catch up... the laid-back indifference vocalist Adam Duritz almost seems to have for the stories he winds in and around, as if resigned to his fate while simultaneously detached. It's a strangely potent combination, and Duritz is as convincing as any singer has ever been. His delivery on this album alone automatically puts him up with the other vocal legends. That this level of intensity was never again repeated by Counting Crows can be forgiven, for an album like this is a rare gift in the truest sense. Every musical group should be so lucky as to have only one album of this caliber. August... is one of the five best albums of the '90s, doing the decade proud. And in my estimation, one of the 25 greatest of all-time, making the rock n' roll era all the better for it.

This is the debut album by Counting Crows, and perhaps the most consistent of all. Even though this CD is best known for the overplayed radio hit “Mr. Jones”, which is a pretty good song, though, the rest of it shines by itself. The lyrics transmitted by the lead vocalist Adam Duritz through his excellent voice are very touching and heartfelt, dealing with personal introspectiveness, loneliness or the loss of loved ones (e.g: Perfect Blue Buildings-notice that the lyrics deal with someone dying of AIDS) Incidentally, these well-written lyrics are complemented with the band´s solid performance. Personal favs include “Right Here”, “Omaha”, “Mr.Jones”, “Perfect Blue Buildings”, “Time and Time Again”. Overall, this is a classic of the mid-1990´s that never gets old (Good quality music should be timeless). BTW, there is a Limited Edition of this album released as a Double CD Set in 2007. Highly recommended.

Recently I heard Mr. Jones on the radio and decided to revisit this album. I cam back to it liking more than ever before. A true 90s classic.

This is one of my top 5 debut albums of all time. Enough said.

Thordira
Still one of my favorite records. Smashingly good songwriting here.
