This is an emotionally engaging, original and thoroughly well produced pop album. The breezy, minimalist songs and lyrics are perfectly well matched by instrumental and studio wizardry that is never flash; just simply delicious.

I knew the summer had arrived as soon as I heard this album. It will never become a big seller, but if you like to have your ears caressed by the sweet sonic winds you won't be disappointed. Check out their myspace site for some full samples, this music is not for 30 sec snippets.

Lounge Indie pop reminiscent of 'Frou Frou' with hints 'Stereolab', 'Broadcast' or 'St Etienne'....This is pretty easy listening and really quite enjoyable....cheered me up somewhat after my cat met its demise earlier in the day. Altogether an uplifting number that eases you nicely through an evening rather that takes you to another place.

I was very lucky to catch a tune whilst out shopping in Vegas. I couldn't get the tune out of my mind and a few days later tracked it down with Google... It was Again and Again.

Its been a few weeks since I bought the album and I can honestly say "Wow"... I'm not sure if its Indie, Nu Soul, Pop... its just so nice and accomplished it falls into all three categories with ease.

Very similar to some of Clara Hill's stuff (1st 2 albums... not latest!). Stand out tracks for me are Again And Again (obviously), I'm A Broken Heart (what a great track) and Because.

A little short at just over 35 minutes... and a bonus track would have been nice but more of the same please :o)

THOSE LOOKING FOR BACKGROUND MUSIC MUST NOT BUY THIS!

This stops you in your tracks and compels you to do nothing but listen.

A rare occurence these days.

I wasn't at all surprised.

Inara's solo album 'All Rise' was a delightful thing to discover a few years ago.

The Bird And The Bee is even further out on a limb.

Buy and smirk smugly knowing that you are indulging in one of today's best kept musical secrets.

Listen loud on headphones for sheer heaven experience.

I came across The Bird and the Bee by accident. I was trying to track down the music in a TV advert on iTunes and came across a cover version of the same track (Carol of the Bells) that had been done by TB&TB. I'm very glad I found them. My three favourites are 'Again and again'. 'La, La, La' and 'Preparedness'

When I first heard this album I thought that it was going to be on my stereo for weeks but 2 hours after listening it for the first time I heard it as it was; A bleak repetitive album with nothing more than catchy choruses and experimental words.

4 of the 10 songs are catchy and also quite briliant, but there are a few that are okay and the rest fall short of listenable.

On a high note Inara George has a voice as beautiful as the slowest sunset.

Highlights: Again & Again, F*cking Boyfriend, Lalala, I Hate Camera.

Disappointments: Most of the choruses are repetitive, making it boring after a few listens.

It is a good listen if you're a fairweather music fan.

Marvellous, sweet tunes with great beats, good atmospheres on the slower paced ones, Inara George has the sweetest voice! Some of these tunes sound right off Dubstar's debut, Disgraceful; brilliant stuff. George's vocal harmonisation mixin' on I Hate Camera with a 60s harpsichord backing is absolutely charming. F*cking Boyfriend is great tune, possibly the best on the album, the profanity doesn't bother me in the slightest - it is real, man. Check their EP also.
