August and Everything After was released during the prime reign of 90s grunge. Consisting of folky sound songs, using acoustic guitars and pianos, August and Everything After stood as a polar opposite to the heavier sound of Nirvana, STP and Soundgarden. August and Everything After was received with wide critical acclaim harkening the band to greats such as Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Tom Petty. August and Everything After is the perfect singer/songwriter album, strong in narrative and imagery. Counting Crows upbeat biggest hit - “Mr. Jones” stands in complete contrast to the more beautifully melodic and melancholy sound of the album.
