 For the Birds July 23, 2012 By Anthony Phillips (Chicago, IL) See All My Reviews "Having read a blurb in the New Yorker, and being a listener & lover to the birds, I ventured to purchase an MP3 of this recording. It's entertaining enough to listen through once, but will I listen to it again, I don't know? Charming, sweet, even smart here and there, but some cuts are as irritating as any birdsong of Messiaen, without the substance. "A Joyful Noise" is joyless noise." Report Abuse
