The Counting Crows are known to many as one of the best musical artists of the '90s. Since they’re such an influential band, let’s rank the best Counting Crows albums, with the help of your votes. Formed in 1991 in Berkeley, California, Counting Crows started out as a duo (singer Adam Duritz and guitarist David Bryson), but by the time they released their debut August and Everything After (1993), they were a well-rounded seven piece. The band returned strong with their second album, Recovering the Satellites (1996) which yielded the hit "Angels of the Silences."

This Counting Crows discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Counting Crows albums can be found at the top of the list.
