COUNTING CROWS...August And Everything After  (1993)
August And Everything After is the debut album from the Counting Crows, released 20 years ago in 1993.  It reached number 4 on the U.S. Billboard album charts.  It is recommended and I'll give it a 2 1/2 out of 5 stars.  It had been years since I had heard this album, and as I was listening I remembered that back in '93 when it came out I thought it was ok, while radio and the CD buying public (yes, the physical media of a CD is and still is awesome) thought it a great album.  The highlights for me are "Mr. Jones" (because it was very familiar),   "Round Here" and "Rain King"
