5 Big Yellow Taxi (Part 2)theukoption | 11/05/2012 | See all theukoption's reviews (1)I assume the success of Big Yellow Taxi must have contributed to the thought that maybe they could do a whole album of covers. The question arises therefore how did they choose this compilation? There is no doubting the quality of the band. A couple of the tracks I did not know and it could have been a new Counting Crows song as far as I was concerned. It does not have the impact of the classic albums of there's. It kinda fills in time, (as if they are just looking to finish a three album contract with a record company). Or are in between writing their own songs and these are the songs they play to amuse themselves. I would not turn it off, but if I wanted to listen to Counting Crows I would still reach for one of their first four albums.
