Hands of Glory might not stand alone as a release without the context provided by Break It Yourself, but it nevertheless serves as a testament to how capable and creative Bird can be when he’s dialed in.

It doesn’t shock or change the course of rivers, but it does invite, and welcome, and maybe pour you a cup of tea and ask about your day.

Consequence of Sound

Bird manages to work his self-analytical tack into the album here and there, but it never stood a chance to matching the heights of his original work, and likely never intended to.
