ANDREW BIRD "Armchair Apocrypha" - Mindlbowing Album (where have I been?)

seriously, where have I been??? For a while I was stuck in Arcade Fire's Neon Bible and Bright Eye's Cassadaga, 2 albums I was quite looking forward to and I liked them but where not as spectacular others made it seem. OK, I digress..also I', drunk, so bear with me, but ANdre fuckign Bird's Armchair Apocrypha is perhaps the most brilliant album, full of folky flavor, violins, lovely whistles, greats rhythms, and the lyrics!! the lyrics!!! it almsot puts Neon Bible to shame, seriosuly, this album is one of the greatest things I've heard in 2007, you should take a listen.
2007 Looking forward to bjork, wilco, ryan bloody adams...e tc..

ok, sorry, what happened with the band index? i looked for it, no luck,

conan is on leno, it's so weird, weird guest
hahahiaHBASHASHAHHAHAHA

I'd get on ya about insulting other members, but you're a member here as well, so I guess you're including yourself in that statement anyway.

i was trying to get people here to care about andrew bird about 2 years ago and it didn't really have much of an effect. i like the album.. like his previous ones more though at this point.

I saw him on Friday night. The set heavily centered on material off the new album, which was fine but I was looking forward to tracks from previous albums, especially MPOE. He was amaaaazing. And hot damn did the Bird/Dosh collaborations on Imitosis and Simple X ever put the album versions to shame. Dosh is a genius

Aaand I requested Dr. Stringz after the encore and he played it

even the new Kaiser Chiefs, that sucks, puts Cassadaga to shame

this new Andrew Bird is good, but Patrick Wolfs kicks its ass
