Review Type: 

Xavier Rudd might sound familiar to your ears. He's a multitalented Australian singer-songwriter and a strong environmental activist. As a direct consequence, the songs he produces are mostly society bound. He uses his music as a tool to stand up for the Aboriginees he cares so much about and to prevail our vulnerable Mother Earth. Also on his latest piece of music, which goes by the name of Spirit Bird, these elements are clearly present and thoroughly worked out. It starts at the very beginning with the title and goes all the way through up to the final song, Comfortable In My Skin. The rock songs on Spirit Bird are amplified with Aborigine singing and their traditional instrument, the didgeridoo, of which Xavier has always been a great fan.
After the first listening turn of Spirit Bird, I was quite impressed with Xavier Rudd's genuine talent. Lyrics, sounds and the general vibe all seem to work really well.
Without being too modest, I strongly believe Spirit Bird is one of the best albums (if not the best) Xavier Rudd has ever created. It takes you away on an unforgettable journey of love and respect for humanity and nature as a whole.
