Counting Crows return with their first studio album in six years. Saturday Nights is neatly divided in half, starting with rummed-up and ready rockers for the nighttime and segueing into more intimate ballads for Sunday morning.

The Counting Crows are by far my favorite band from the past 15 years or so. They have that old school sound to them that most bands don't possess today. After a 6 year layoff from new material, Counting Crows are back with "Saturday Nights and Sunday Mornings," a classic effort that echoes their classic albums "Recovering the Satellites" and the extremely underrated masterpiece "This Desert Life." Their previous album "Hard Candy" was good, but wasn't great as a whole. It was a bit to poppy for me and that's what Counting Crows are not about. Their music speaks from the heart, and it's their originality that makes them great. Counting Crows have turned back to the form that has made them great. Here, front man Adam Duritz wows us again with his brilliant lyrics that we all can relate to in some way or another. As any Counting Crows album, I urge you to listen to it over and over again. The tunes get better and better. There's already a handful of instant classic tracks on this album. This is easily one of the best albums to come along in years. It's a destined classic. Adam Duritz and company are back, better than ever!
when i first listened to this new album i thought that it was OK butmusic tends to be one of those things that you need to ease yourself into. As i unfolded myself into the ballads and the lyrics i realized that this album is another great one from the counting crows. Its really good once you get into it. I love the whole upbeat saturday night stuff and the mellow sunday mornings. Its a good album.
Once again, Adam Duritz has reached into and bared his soul into an incredible CD. There is so much depth, meaning and moving lyrics in every track. I have not stopped listening to it since its release. This band is clearly talented beyond words.
the ballads all sound the same, and they've all been done before. Every previous CC album had a few lyrical gems, or certain phrases that really stuck. the lyrics here seem whiny and forced, and the music is wholly uninspired.
What a disappointment, I have been waiting 5 long years for this album! CC has really broken my heart, because this album it's AWFUL.
