    Declan De Barra didn't surprised me by this album. In my opinion it's recurrent and predictable. Declan IS NOT showing power of his voice, what's more in first song he's just squeaking (instead of singing).
    I tried to crack his lyrics - and I've got now 3 options:
    a) he had really bad time (we're talking about woman of course ; )) and his trauma was so big that last 3 songs are just to brilliant for me ...
    b) he had really bad time - but it last only for 8 songs ; D
    c) whole album was writen _just_to_fuck_work_off_

    Anyway, short lyrics' overhaul:
    1. "Throw Your Arms Around Me" is calm, warm song about eternal friendship. A little naive.
    2. "Song of a Thousand Birds" tells us about fighting for freedom. First part is too monotonous and second one links my minds to "Braveheart".
    3. In "Blackbird Song" I found longing for someone who should be here whole the time.
    4. "Someday Soon" is clearly an answer for previous song.
