COUNTING CROWS



Since the release of their stunning 1993 debut, "August And Everything After," Counting Crows have crafted a reputation as one of the premier "thinking person's" rock acts, thanks both to the group's roots-based, throwback sound as well as singer Adam Duritz' introspective yet universal lyrics.

Songs such as "Mr. Jones" and "Round Here" from "August And Everything After" saw the band exploring the somber landscape of broken hearts and busted dreams; on the 1996 follow-up, "Recovering The Satellites," the band returned with an electrifying -- and mostly uptempo -- collection of tracks that seemed to trace the band's meteoric rise as well as tell tales of those lost along the way.

After issuing last year's double-live record, "Across A Wire: Live In New York City," the Crows huddled in a converted L.A. home with Cracker's David Lowery and co-producer Dennis Herring to cut the group's third, and perhaps most diverse, record to date, "This Desert Life."

Shortly before the release of "This Desert Life," MTV News' Serena Altschul had a chance to sit down with Adam Duritz and talk about the making of the new album, some of the images (and names) that keep popping up in the band's songs, and the frontman's romantic addiction to actresses.
