5 stars This is my kind of musical madness! Music meandering like birds en masse in the sky turning at a moment's notice and off in an entirely new direction. That's BIRDS AND BUILDINGS. One of the most exciting debut releases of avant-prog. This eclectic stew is astonishing in that it pays homage to the wealth of 70s heroes while simultaneously adding freshness and upgrading to the modern era.

Musically this is perfect, but the sparse male vocals could have gotten an upgrade as well. One of the only things I dislike about this album. Highly recommended to anyone who loves high energy music like zeuhl (definitely Magma influences) with eclectic elements of King Crimson, jazziness of Canterbury, saxes, crazy drumming and everything from slide guitar to soothing flutes. Must hear to believe. Too many influences to count. Eclectic to the max! 4.5 stars rounded up to 5
