Birdland was a posthumous release that contained material Lester had recorded with a New York band (also known as the Rattlers) that featured Joey Ramone's brother. This was more post-punk pop-sounding than his earlier stuff (especially "Let It Blurt"), and the music suffers from a certain sameness. Some tracks are re-recordings of previously released songs (e.g., "Accidents of God"), and while not an important record, it's very good, if not essential. ~ John Dougan
