This Desert Life is the third studio album from Counting Crows. The cover art is by noted comic book artist Dave McKean, best known for his work with Neil Gaiman, and was adapted from the cover art McKean did for Gaiman's picture book The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish. All songs written by Adam Duritz except as indicated. Hanginaround" (Duritz, Dan Vickrey, Ben Mize, David Bryson) – 4:07. Potter's Lullaby" – 7:46. Amy Hit the Atmosphere" (Duritz, Matt Malley) – 4:36.

It's likely that critics and listeners will consider Counting Crows' long-delayed third album, This Desert Life, another retro effort by a traditionalist band, but it's actually their most individual and finest album yet. All the familiar elements are in place, from Adam Duritz's impassioned vocals and cryptic lyrics to the jangling instrumentation, but the laments gel better than ever before.
