Wow. What else can we say about the eleventh studio album from singer/songwriter/instrumentalist/whistler, Andrew Bird? Noble Beast ($10) (which makes its debut next week) is one of his cleanest, airiest works. Beast is rich with easygoing vocals, haunting strings and guitars and, of course, Bird's signature whistling. We adore this set, and think you will, too. Check out "Anonanimal," "Nomenclature," and "Fitz and Dizzyspells" for proof of the genius.
