There is a flock of birds flying south for the winter. One bird is leading them. He says, "First we're going to Mexico for the fruit, beaches, and good times. Then we're going to Rio for the carnival, sunrises, and cakes. After that, Peru. Y'all will like all three."
the new cd is just fine people. geez.. relax. they have moved on to a more dreamy type sound and got away from the overplayed garage/grunge/emo sound. yes i said emo. cause that first ep is horrible. i mean cant you tell by the new cd cover alone they going for a more dreampop sound. here's to hoping they push it even further the next cd.
Little underwhelmed on first listen of new album. Can't hear the rock edge, like previous efforts. And the music just doesn't stand out much. Its a overloaded with vocals.  My opinion as well. the 2010 Album was just epic.

Seems that Birds Of Tokyo are slipping more and more into the generic radio fodder territory. I liked the new album for what it's worth, a dull trip of decent songs that try way too hard to sound like Coldplay (another band that are really becoming uninteresting for me). Don't get me wrong, there are good moments. Even some songs sound like Youth Lagoon (I love that band). There is just nothing interesting at all to be had on March Fires. It sounds like commercial music marketed for mass appeal. This album just makes me really want another Karnivool album even more.
I love all their previous albums but this one...man, this one IMHO is so boring and repetitive that it's hard to believe it's still Birds of Tokyo. And what is worst, Ian's voice got so washed out of any emotions that it hurts.
