He just takes me some place else… And I like it. His new album Noble Beast has taken awhile to digest but then again so did Armchair Apocrypha. Andrew Bird strips it down and goes a little more natural on this album. His beautiful voice soothes along with mellow acoustics.  The album is 13 songs deep with a couple of second long filler/transition tracks. The album gets a little more dynamic towards the middle on Not a Robot, But a Ghost

Andrew Bird is always gorgeous in my opinion… I have found that his albums grow on me and I find myself returning to them year after year. The album as a whole is really well done, however at this point I have no idea if Noble Beast will appear on my end of the year list… Only time will tell.

Andrew Bird is coming to the Los Angeles area on February 18th at the Orpheum Theatre, with Loney, Dear. You can also get a little taste of Andrew Bird live on NPR.
