8. This Desert Life - Counting Crows, 1999 (Best of the 90s)

This Desert Life

Counting Crows
Geffen Records.

While August and Everything After deserves a spot of its own, I cannot deny that This Desert Life is indeed the better album, taking all the trademarks that made August... the classic while reaching out into a more well-rounded sound. Disclaimer: this video isn't very good. It makes the band look lamer than they actually are. Still, the music is the message and few major-label, alt-country bands release seven-minute singles these days. Super-good.
