Well the COunting Crows went downhill fast but August and Everything after is a great album. Probably one of the best debut albums of all time .

Actually - I like alot of the Counting Crows music that is not on August & Everything after. Recovering the Satellites is my favorite album of theirs (their 2nd I believe). Tremendous album. Some of the other stuff is eh though.

What are you talking about? Kamrom from Young Black Teenagers (YBT if you're nasty) was totally rad.

Anyway, I am listening to the Crane Wife now... I don't hear any resemblance to the Crows. I do hear them ripping off a Rush riff though.

Ok.. this album is really good. There's one clunker on the whole thing but overall it's sweet.

PM me

At little late to the boat, but The Decemberists were at the Philly Folk Fest this year and rocked the joint. They might have to rename it the Philly Indie Rock Fest though. Along with the Decemberists, Iron & Wine was also on the bill.
