Ryan's Top 10: Number 7

#7 Andrew Bird - Armchair Apocrypha


I can’t really add too much more to what Bryan already mentioned in his excellent post concerning this album in his Top Ten. For me, it isn’t #1, but I can totally understand why someone would consider it as such. My opinions have basically remained unchained on Armchair Apocrypha since I first posted a few songs in my One Man Band webcast a couple months ago. It’s a nicely done, mellow sounding, intelligent record. One thing I would like to add to Bryan’s post is the fact that Andrew Bird, at one point, was a member of the Squirrel Nut Zippers. It’s not really a good thing or a bad thing, its just kinda is….know what I mean? Anyhoo, my faves from the album are posted below. Enjoy, and if you haven’t already picked up this album, it’s available over at Emusic, as is a few of Bird’s older albums, which they’ve recently been adding.

Andrew Bird - Heretics

Andrew Bird - Plasticities
