August And Everything After is the debut studio album by American rock band Counting Crows, originally released in September 1993 by Geffen Records.

When the prevailing guitar jingle of "Mr. Jones" cascaded over radio in the early '90s, it was a sure sign that the Counting Crows were a musical force to be reckoned with. August And Everything After, burst at the seams with both dominant pop harmonies and rich, hearty ballads, all thanks to lead singer Adam Duritz.

The lone guitar work of "Mr. Jones" coupled with the sweet, in-front pull of Duritz's voice kicked off the album in full force. The starkly beautiful and lonely sounding "Round Here" captured the band's honest yet subtle talent for singing ballads, while "Omaha" is lyrically reminiscent of a Springsteen tune.

The fusion of hauntingly smooth vocals with such instruments as the Hammond B-3 organ and the accordion pumped new life into the music scene, and their brisk sound catapulted them into stardom. On "Rain King", the piano takes over as its aloof flair dances behind Duritz with elegant crispness. The slower-paced "Raining In Baltimore" paints a perfectly gray picture and illustrates the band's ease at conveying mood by eliminating the tempo.

Most of the songs here engage in overly contagious hooks that won't go away, making for a solid bunch of tunes. Containing the perfect portions of instrumental and vocal conglomeration, the Counting Crows showed off their appealing sound to its full extent with their very first album.

Check out the tracks: “Mr Jones”, “Round Here”; “Rain King” and “A Murder Of One”. 

This double LP housed in a gatefold sleeve with remastered audio and digital download is pressed in the USA on black vinyl.
