After one listen, I'm not sure what to do with this one. I love Andrew Bird for the subversive wit within his accessible almost-pop song structures. His "Eno album" showcases another of his myraid talents, but rarely hints at what makes the rest of his work from this era so strong.

"Carrion Suite" is admittedly breathtaking.
