Saturday Song of the Day - Counting Crows Review!

This week for Saturday Song of the Day I thought I would tell you about the new Counting Crow Album called Underwater Sunshine (or what we did on our summer vacation).

Underwater Sunshine is a testament of a band geek-obsessed with music. “There’s a million great songs written every day that you discover, and wish your friends could appreciate as much as you do,” says singer/songwriter Adam Duritz. “These songs come from bands young and old, stretching from the early 60s to last year. They’re all great and will hopefully be heard by a few more people now.”

The album is produced by Counting Crows and Shawn Dealey, Underwater Sunshine features tracks written by artists such as Big Star, Gram Parsons, Tender Mercies, Kasey Anderson and The Faces. Each rendition offers an entire spectrum of human emotion, delivered with the conviction and intense honesty the band is known for.
As their first independent release, it was the right time for the Crows to make this album. “If you wonder why we didn’t just write our own record, it’s simply because we wanted to do THIS one,” says Duritz, We now have the creative freedom to release albums like this and offer our fans more music than ever.”

After listening to the album a few times, I can say that I really enjoyed it. It is a very classic, easy to listen to album. I do a lot of my music listening on my way to work or back home and I love songs that I can get lost in and forgot about work. This has been one of those albums. I love the first song which is Untitled (love song). I have been trying to figure out if I have a favorite and I don't think I do, I love all the songs and find myself lost in the lyrics. A must listen to if you are a Counting Crows fan.
