Counting Crows gained popularity following the release of its debut album, August and Everything After (1993). Featuring the breakthrough hit single "Mr. Jones" (1993), the album sold more than seven million copies in the United States. Counting Crows eschewed the trend, happily wearing their time-stamped influences like Van Morrison and The Band on their patchwork sleeves, and found an audience who agreed with them.

Not only does the band deliver a soulful rendition of "Fool on the Hill," but the dreaded side-long track makes its appearance on side two of Stone the Crows. The tune is titled "I Saw America," and it pulls together the rock, blues, and soul elements that were splintered up on the first side. A spirited attempt was made to live up to the grandiose title, and there's some confident guitar by Les Harvey, but ultimately Stone the Crows are unable to meld together the progressive folk, boogie, jazz, and soul sections that comprise the piece.
The Sun refused to shine. The moon confessed all it witnessed the night before. As her love reflected that of the night. While his shone bright like the day. The sky, innocent as it stood on both sides. A scale, holding neither in contempt. A love shining bright. As both are now rarely seen standing side by side. Disrupted by the bitter croon of clouds. The moon covered in soot. slowly drifts back to where it once sat. Awaiting a sleep that never comes. Remindd by the Sun's presence. While the Sun. Becomes dull. seperated from the gases that fueled.
For an album so firmly anchored by death, Crow is suffused with life: The geese, the forest fires, the crows, the grocery-store lines where Elverum stumbles through awkward conversation with people from town. Tragedy hasn't stopped him from noticing the world; if anything, it seems to have pried his eyes open for good. As for the question of sadness, I defer to a quote attributed to Anton Chekhov that art should prepare us for tenderness. I have two very young children of my own; one of them is sleeping on my chest while I write.
