This is the third studio album by the band that in 1994 with the debut, August And Everything After-derived single Mr. Jones. This Desert Life appears a year after the live double album Across A Wire (1998) and late in comparison with the previous Counting Crows-work little surprises. Traditional American rock so, with lots of acoustic instruments, the well-known influences of Van Morrison, The Band and R.E.M. influences and (for some too) tormented sounding voice of singer Adam Duritz. Those who are not allergic to are have a nice plate at, with beautiful songs as Hanginaround, Four Days, All My Friends and I Wish I Was A Girl.
