Hey, whattaya know? COUNTING CROWS are still a band! Who knew?
And the better question: Does anyone still care? After all, it's been six years since their last album (the if-a-tree-falls-in-the-forest-obscure HARD CANDY), and 15 years since AUGUST AND EVERYTHING AFTER blew up bigger-than-big (and left contemporaries like GIN BLOSSOMS and TOAD THE WET SPROCKET choking on their dust).
The new long-player, SATURDAY NIGHTS & SUNDAY MORNINGS, is out today. I don't hear a breakout single on there ("1492" rocks hard but in vain), so it's hard to imagine this effort serving as catalyst for a comeback. Stranger things have happened, I suppose (for example: People keep buying that damn JACK JOHNSON record. Ugh.)
