Andrew Bird: Better than Sufjan?
Andrew Bird's songs are pretty pleasant, but do I appreciate the sincere/contrived arrangements of Sufjan Stevens? I mean, if you had to have either an Andrew Bird album or MICHIGAN in your car for the rest of your life, wouldn't it probably have to be an Andrew Bird album?
"Chicago" is a great song, but do I really want to look out the window and pretend that it makes my life more meaningful? Sufjan seems like a pretty "chill dude," though. He supports America, and that's fine by me. I don't know any thing about Andrew Bird except that his music is pleasant and probably considered to be "well crafted" by critics.
