Para além de ganhar, mas de longe, o prémio para nome mais original dado a um álbum (The misterious production of eggs) e a uma música (A Nervous Tick Motion of the Head to the Left) , Andrew Bird ganhou ainda o respeito de toda a crítica musical.

You don’t see many musicians described as a “whistler” but Chicago’s Andrew Bird (who is also a singer-songwriter, guitarist, and originally, a violinist) fits the bill. This is his fifth release (and second for Ani DiFranco’s record label), which finds him backed by several members of his group Bowl Of Fire.

Metacritic.com

An utterly mesmerizing and magnetic album, almost unfair in how incredibly ambitious and impressively pulled off the whole thing is.

All Music guide

Taking all the best parts of Jeff Buckley, Devandra Barnhart and Rufus Wainwright, Bird can be noisy, charming, frivolous, haunting and playful all at once.

Billboard

O álbum data do primeiro trimestre de 2005 e, no entanto, parece ter passado completamente despercebido por cá…
É uma pena que não se publicitem obras como esta.

A Fake Palyndromes é das músicas que mais rolam pelo meu Foobar ou Winamp…

my dewy-eyed disney bride, what has tried
swapping your blood with formaldehyde?
monsters?
whiskey-plied voices cried fratricide!
jesus don’t you know that you could’ve died
(you should’ve died)
with the monsters that talk, monsters that walk the earth

and she’s got red lipstick and a bright pair of shoes
and she’s got knee high socks, what to cover a bruise
she’s got an old death kit she’s been meaning to use
she’s got blood in her eyes, in her eyes for you
she’s got blood in her eyes for you

certain fads, stripes and plaids, singles ads
they run you hot and cold like a rheostat, i mean a thermostat
so you bite on a towel
hope it won’t hurt too bad

my dewy-eyed disney bride, what has tried
swapping your blood with formaldehyde?
what monsters that talk, monsters that walk the earth

and she says i like long walks and sci-fi movies
if you’re six foot tall and east coast bred
some lonely night we can get together
and i’m gonna tie your wrists with leather
and drill a tiny hole into your head
