GIVEAWAY and Review: Counting Crows "Underwater Sunshine" CD & FREE Download



I enjoyed previewing this CD. I found it to be something that I could kick back, relax and listen to. I think my first exposure to Counting Crows was probably when they released "Mr. Jones". That is such a catchy tune. I really enjoyed their remake of "Amie" on this CD. I do enjoy hearing remakes when they are done well and this was very enjoyable to listen to. There are many songs on this CD that I really enjoyed, in fact this could be a CD I could probably listen to from start to finish. With a title that is called "Underwater Sunshine (Or What We Did On Our Summer Vacation)" and songs featured on the album titled "Hospital", "Ooh La La", "Four White Stallions", "Jumping Jesus", & "You Ain't Going Nowhere"....You are kinda left wondering, Just what did you do on your summer vacation. When I listen to this, I am envisioning a group of friends on a long road trip in an old convertible and their hair absorbing the wind and sunshine as they make memories and laughter. 

In the spirit of their new album Underwater Sunshine (Or What We Did On Our Summer Vacation), the Crows will be introducing some of their favorite artists on the second leg of their headlining summer tour, The Outlaw Roadshow, which grew out of the Outlaw Roadshow indie rock showcases that Adam Duritz and Ryan Spaulding of Ryan's Smashing Life (www.RSLBlog.com) have been staging at CMJ and SXSW in recent years. Supporting Counting Crows on The Outlaw Roadshow's 2nd leg this summer will be We Are Augustines, Kasey Anderson and The Honkies, and Field Report.
