I think I'm in the minority of people that find this guy kind of boring. granted I've only heard Armchair but I didn't find too much to love about that album. is it worth giving this a shot?

his problem is even his best albums (Armchair, Eggs) have a few too many boring songs among the great ones. This album is still really nice but some of it is a bit boring. This is definitely worth getting for the highlights though, as any andrew bird album is.

I feel like people who find him boring tend to be looking for something that isn't there

I don't know, I usually dig stuff like this but he just doesn't do much for me. I'm definitely not looking for something that isn't there. It's folk, full stop.

I didn't think much of this first time around but it grew quite a bit on second listen.

@Aids it's definitely not all folk. Lots of pop, too, like indie pop and baroque pop. Also, he's used a lot of flamenco and jazz influences. It's actually pretty all over the board.

@WeepingBanana definitely agree with that. Although I've never personally seen him live, I've seen videos online and I watched the "Fever Year" documentary on him, and it just makes me feel like I'm missing out on something...

I don't really get what makes Andrew Bird boring either, he's so melodic and talented. Danse Carribe is just unbelieveable

I know! I'm not sure people are listening to Andrew Bird for the right reasons if they find him boring. That may be unfair to say but there wasn't nothing in here for me that was boring at all.

iron and wine and acts like that should take notes from this and stop sounding so damn sterile and numbing
