..interesting because this is such a break away from her first two albums, both classics in their own right. I felt a little disappointed on 'Birds' first foray through my speakers, due to the almost overly simple and self-indulgent melancholy which pervades these songs. However, after a few spins, the album took on a very addictive quality and remains one of my most played. Birds is dark. Birds is slow. Birds doesn't break any new ground.

Sonically one of the best recordings I have heard. String arrangements by Tom Rainey. A sensitive group of musicians are backing her, amongst them Neil Finn on piano.
