As Alternative became commercially viable, so did forms of Alternative Pop. With that, Counting Crows made a huge seemingly overnight splash with their debut record that was often compared to the Band and R.E.M. With that type of comparison, they received the type of dual success of being critically respected and commercially successful. Although they are not nearly on top of the world like they used to be, Counting Crows still has a lot of music left in them and they could easily make their case much stronger upon their eligibility date….or Adam Duritz could date more TV starlets.
