iTunes Review

Andrew Bird has never shied away from whimsy, but Are You Serious—the chamber-pop craftsman's first album since marriage and parenthood—finds him taking comfort on comparatively solid ground. So while the album retains Bird’s penchant for erudition and eclecticism (the Chinese opera ornaments of “Roma Fade” or the South African shuffle of “The New Saint Jude”), its standouts take him to more modest and familiar places, like the folksy Fiona Apple duet “Left Handed Kisses.” “How did I ever find you/Drifting gently through the gyre of the great Sargasso Sea,” Bird wonders. “Atlantic Ocean got me writing love songs with a common refrain like this one here.”

Best of the best

I can't stop listening to this whole album. Going to his concert in a week. So excited :)

Can’t wait

The 2 songs up so far set the bar high. I especially love the duet with Fiona Apple! I think this might be Bird’s best and that’s saying a lot.

His Best Album

Andrew Bird is known to explore new avenues of sounds every album, but the roads he goes down in this one create his most exceptional sound yet. A unique blend of his classic whimsical style combined with new maturely simple melodies and arrangements that highlight how he has grown as a father and family man. Love, love, love it.
