Andrew Bird: Armchair Apocrypha

March 23, 2007 at 10:13 am (Andrew Bird, Armchair Apocrypha, mp3s)

 

Although I’ll be the first to admit that Andrew Bird latest album, Armchair Apocrypha is a little on the dull side, I’ll also admit that it’s a pretty decent album. Bird has a good sense of pace, and a nice style. Most of all, I like his lyrics. Not only does he use cool words like “palindromes” and “apropos”, he’s good at creating atmospheric, melancholy lines. I have a bit of a hard time listening to the whole thing in a single sitting, but it’s grown on me considerably since I first heard it. You should let it do the same to you.

 

Update: I’ve given this another listen, and it’s still growing on me. It’s actually quite nice.

    Ah, there it is again, the “removed upon request” signs…on every blog I’ve visited! It’s funny, you know, but I discovered Andrew’s Mysterious Production of Eggs album via blogs. I heard 4 or 5 tracks, loved them all and consequently went out and bought the album. This time around, the only track Ive managed to hear is Heretics and I’m not impressed at all. If I were able to hear more, I might give this album a try too, but on the basis of Heretics I don’t think I’ll bother! Andrew’s management, please take note: blogs = good, Heretics MP3 on it’s own = bad!

    I’m with Pete, I’ll only buy albums if I can hear more than one song to get a feel for it. These idiot record company execs are hurting their artists by limiting what can be heard out there, I’m skipping this one based on Heretics too. F@#$ the record labels.
