Editorial Reviews

This Canadian born, Boston-Montreal bred singer-songwriter's music captures the spirit of all who strive to keep their generation's heart, beat, and vibe alive. Mike's rock, pop, and acoustic stylings reflect early influences ranging from Neil Young to Todd Rundgren. His music is infused with heartfelt life experiences, loves, losses and laughter.

This album is comprised of songs from throughout Mike's 40 years of playing and writing music - some acoustic, some electric rock, folk and pop songs.

2 SMART ANGEL 5:15
3 SHE STOLE MY HEART 3:03

By Tom.e
Format:Audio CD
think you're about to be lullaby'd into a hypnotic state of tranquilized fairy-folk bliss? well, don't let the first minute or so fool ya cuz this mother gets into your face from the word GO and rarely, if ever, lets up. If the 1st track doesn't blow you away (joke there), then most likely you've been trapped in a bomb shelter most of your life and probably need to surface for a breath of 'fresh' air, much of which abounds here! grant it, even mike would probably admit he's not the greatest singer or vocalist. but what this disc lacks in vocal ability is more than made up for in lyrical story-telling, inspired, motivated song craftsmanship, and a wide variety of both rocking' and melodic hooks and riffs, fueled by the man's elegant command of instrument(s), musical harmony, and visionary artistic ability... in spades! so please be a Smart Angel, check it out, and then... be prepared to kiss your ASS goodbye!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Birch Tree September 30, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Some music connects you to event in the past either through the notes or the words. Mike Birch has his finger on shared experience of past relationships, the clock that moves us along and all with great riffs and rhythms woven in to make the trip fun. Like much of Todd Rundgren's early work, Mike performs the instruments and multiple layers of voice, creating a smooth and rich sound without clutter; you wonder how this can be done without studio equipment. Some cuts take you back to the late 60's while others reflect more 90's progressions but none are rip-off of other artist; Mike has his own styles and seem comfortable moving between them.

It's a fun trip through the years and I'd highly recommend it for both the music and the journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars A note from the artist September 23, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Due to a final production change, tracks 5 & 6 were reversed. For anyone downloading the MP3s this means the track listed as 'Crazy Man' is actually 'Small Small World' and vice-versa.
The correct track listing on the CD is as follows, not as printed on the sleeve:
1 WHEN THE BOMB FALLS 4:56
2 SMART ANGEL 5:15
3 SHE STOLE MY HEART 3:03
4 EYE TO EYE 5:03
5 SMALL SMALL WORLD 3:58
6 CRAZY MAN 6:26
7 MONTREAL SKY 3:55
8 HAVE I TOLD YOU TODAY 3:45
9 THE ROAD 4:53
10 THOUGHTS OF FALL AND YOU 3:11
11 DEMONS 4:34
12 RISE UP 3:36
13 EVERYTHING FADES 6:14

Thanks for giving my music a listen!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart, Humor and Healthy Folk Rock October 7, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This Boston-bred, Montreal educated folkrock songsmith captures the essence of many fleeting memories of his generation in his lyrics and music. What is most amazing about Mike Birch is his adaptation of guitar styles to suit his lyrics and emotions. The overall effect is HAPPY. The lasting effect is you'll find yourself humming his melodies days later when walking in the woods, etc. If you appreciate independent music-making at its finest, most honest level, then this 40 year retrospective will more than satisfy you. It is rare that one's music takes you to the place where you feel you really know the songwriter. Mike's accessible and eminently entertaining music accomplishes this and more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing sound.. March 2, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Enjoyed listening to the tunes, the artist sits somewhere between Tom Petty and George Harrison.
Intelligent writing, would describe the mixes as generally warm. and very listenable.
