I have heard a couple of new Counting Crows tracks and I have to say, I am pretty stoked for the release of this album. I know, I just shredded my own Indie cred, guess what? I don't give a rats ass. I have always been a fan of the Crows. I like my Crows sappy though, so I hope the tracks tend towards "When I Dream of Michelangelo"; "1492" just doesn't do it for me.
