The six songs on this EP were part of the Mission Bell recording session. I love Mission Bell. The songs on As The Crow Flies sound like the first-time rejects.

I don't hate this record, but it is my least favorite from an artist I like and respect. In particular, this record suffers in comparison to Mission Bell. The music here is sometimes over-produced and generally does not have the level of intimacy or humanity I usually find from Amos Lee. On a couple of tracks his voice is downright querulous, not a good sound for him.

Reading down the track list of Mission Bell, I kept stopping and thinking, yeah, that's a great song. I don't feel that way about any of the songs here. If the next 6 albums each contained one of these songs, that would be a better solution to the problem of recorded and unreleased music. Hopefully the next album is a return to form.

Nuggets that didn't make the Mission Bell release can be found on this EP. I would say the first track is the only one I have a hard time with, as it's quite the downer, but there are some lovely instrumentals. Simple Things is undeniably Amos, and the more you listen, the more you swear you've heard it from him in the past. If there were a pop hit song, it would be track #3, Say Goodbye, with it's upbeat melody - upbeat is not a frequent offering of Amos Lee! May I Remind You is good for slow dancing to, while the pace picks back up a bit for the nautical tune, Mama Sail to Me. The closer, There I Go Again, is a soulful, bluesy number complete with back-up gospel singers. If you're a fan, you'll want to add this to your collection. Short, but sweet.

The first thing you should know is that this is an EP (or "extended play"), i.e., it contains more music than a single but is too short to qualify as a full studio album (or "LP"). It's basically a collection of songs that weren't good enough to make the cut for Mission Bell.

This is a hard album for me to rate. On the one hand, it is probably the lowest quality collection of songs Amos has released. They're not necessarily bad -- the songs are serviceable, they pass as music, and they're unlikely to offend anyone. But they're just as unlikely to inspire anyone. They are perfectly harmless. Pleasant background listening, is all.

On the other hand, I'm glad Amos released this EP, not just because it gives us more Amos but also because it means these songs didn't have to pollute Mission Bell. It means Amos is more selective about which songs he includes on his regular studio releases. I like that. Just don't be fooled into thinking that As The Crow Flies is regular Amos-quality stuff.

Although I love Amos Lee anyway, the first song from this album caught my attention and made me go over to look who it was. I ordered the whole album after that and was not disappointed.

I should preface this by admitting I'm a huge Amos Lee fan. Something in the tone of his voice and the way he delivers the lyrics moves me down deep. While this EP is made up of songs that didn't make Mission Bell, they are far from rejects. I bought this after hearing about 15 seconds of The Darkness. That song remains my favorite here, but I love them all. We're taken through an array of emotions, with both beautiful lyrics and music that cradles the listener all the way through.

This man is brilliant live, sounding even better than he does on recordings. If you ever get the chance to see him, don't hesitate.

If you are an Amos Lee fan, you will really like this album. It has new songs on it that are of the same quality that he always produces.
