Counting Crows: Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings

It took the Counting Crows five years to come up with a new album. Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings is a continuation of their previous output, with more ballads a la Aerosmith and power pop from the R.E.M. school of alternative rock. Singer Adam Duritz still uses his own personal life as a major source for his songwriting, so there is quite a lot about booze and loss. He is not taking this lying down in songs like Sundays and Anyone But You. Best track by far: On A Tuesday In Amsterdam Long Ago which is just a piano and Duritz begging his girl to get back to him. The album ends with Come Around, a song that has written "in concert encore favorite" written all over it.
