Complete your Bel Canto collection. Birds of Passage" - The first of two danceable tracks on the album (the other being "Continuum" which will slowly grow on you, trust me) and the obvious single. Check out the video for the band looking as serious as a migrant family out of the Old Norse Sagas. World Without End" - "mythical, like a dream" (how could I state it better?) "Oyster" - fairytale female vocals pace deftly between lachrymose, aquatic melodies that conjure a Teutonic Liz Fraser transported to a time before time began.

Beginning the band's second album with something that almost exactly resembled Depeche Mode in 1986 may or may not have been intentional, but when Drecker's vocals slid alongside the music with a quietly desperate lyric, "Intravenous" became much more distinctly Bel Canto. Here, the band's music is a touch - just a touch - more upfront, with Drecker's vocals a little more to the fore, if not exactly in one's face

All the great songs and lyrics from the "Birds of Passage" album ont he Web's largest and most authoritative lyrics resource.

I wouldn't recommend paying more than a regular album price for this CD. It's just not that special, unless you want the perfect Bel Canto CD collection, in which case you'll need to pull in some overtime pay this weekend. The sound on that album is a lot richer, more layered and more unique than the music on Birds of Passage. I've never seen a version of this album that has any more or fewer tracks than you see here. The one I bought way back when had the same number of tracks and I don't even know if it was an import.
