Fans of classical and jazz music may enjoy this album. At times is reminds me of Bill Brufords Earthworks (first album, at least). Prog-metal fans might have a hard time understanding it. The guitar lines are rich and tasteful, never bombastic, occassionally Holdsworthian.
As people appreciate when you reference an unknown band to other bands, I will attempt to do so. Birdsongs... however, stands alone, but the musical intellegence might be simular to Renaissance, Neil Ardley, Henry Cow, (Orchestral) ELP (only better!),.. The musical pieces just flow on their own volition. Plenty of time signature changes yet the songs work, and they are NOT abrasively abrupt. The music leaves the listener intregred, reflective and not at all bored.
The instramentation is complex and yet it works on an aesthetic level unlike most prog. Not as "heavy" as Art Zoyd or King Crimson- yet shares the ability to keep the listener engaged! Track six is my personal favorite. Excellent Spin!

The previous reviewer wrote a perfect description. I hesitate to call this rock music. It sounds like modern classical music played with electric instruments. Read morePublished on November 18, 2004 by Horst Meisterfluscher
