Customer Reviews

A must for any andrew bird fan.

This purely instrumental EP from andrew bird really shows a different side of his music that you can't get from his previous albums. The only real problem is that the songs are ways too short.

The first poster summed it up...

With that being said, the song "Something Sinister" is beautiful. This is the kind of thing I wish more musicians would do. Produce something that differs from their other albums but still retains the core sound that their fans enjoy from them. I appreciate this album.

Short. However very beautiful music.

I saw this album was released in 2001 and I found myself wishing 2 things. I wish I could have been listening to this album since then and not just discovering the beautiful music now. And wishing the tracks were longer. Great work. A soundtrack for ones' life. ~ Johnathan P. of PA
