Title - 'Somewhere Under Wonderland (Deluxe)'
Artist - Counting Crows

Thankfully for all of us true music lovers, Counting Crows have just releaseed their highly-anticipated seventh studio album on Capitol Records. The deluxe version (reviewed here today) contains two bonus demo versions of album tracks and there is also a vinyl record out there too to enjoy!

The album kicks-off with the jazzy trumpet-led 'Palisades Park,' before heading into the usual Counting Crows bouncy fare, 'Earthquake Driver.' That's backed by both the jagged guitar-fused 'Dislocation' and then the more melancholic 'God Of Ocean Tides.' One of the best songs on the album, for me, is 'Scarecrow' and that is followed by the fast-paced 'Elvis Went To Hollywood,' the storytelling of 'Cover Up The Sun,' and then the guitar fuzzy 'John Appleseed's Lament.'

Bringing the album to a close is 'Possibility Days,' a cut that is as dour as we would expect from a Counting Crows ballad, but not the best way to close out such a great album; it has to be said. Indeed, that said, and as this is the Deluxe Edition, we get both 'Earthquake Driver (Demo)' and 'Scarecrow (Demo)' to make us smile.
