The Counting Crows is one of those few groups who's CD we will buy, in its entirety, without having heard any of the songs first. We love that they are still around and they feel like the comfy sweatshirt that you always grab to put on even though you have newer ones. Anyway, we were so grateful last week when their new CD, Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings, was released. Thankfully, after waiting so long for a CD of new stuff from them, it is good. The Saturday Nights portion refers to the first 6 songs that are more rousing, particularly 1492. Sunday Mornings refers to the more mellow last 8 songs. Washington Square is just one of those gorgeous melodies that we could just keep on a loop for a long while. Yea, there is a reason that we always reach for that old sweatshirt.
