Amazing.

Andrew Bird manages to be experimental and at the same time stay true to his style. All the tracks after The Supine are just so mellow and heartbreaking. I am in love with it

Following up "The Mysterious Production of Eggs" should be a pretty difficult task, but Andrew Bird hardly breaks a sweat; this is a highly satisfying record. Some of his strongest melodies are on this album, and even if none of them are the most mind-blowing things he's ever done, every one of these songs is individually strong.
