A Lot Like Birds was an American post-hardcore band formed in Sacramento, California. The band released four albums and received considerable media attention from music sites. Since the release of 2011's Conversation Piece, A Lot Like Birds has signed to Equal Vision Records and released their third studio album on October 29, 2013.

A Lot Like Birds can be considered one of these bands. But be warned, listener, As chaotic as they can be, ALLB makes no attempts at being brutal, dark, or slamming. But if you dare to continue, I think you'll be pleased. All in all, Conversation Piece is a post-hardcore album that gives a good argument for the benefit of combining musical influences shamelessly and relentlessly. A Lot Like Birds experiments with the future of the genre while reminding us of the post-rock and post-hardcore outfits that came before them. Still, Conversation Piece is best when enjoyed beyond the surface, and to fully experience it, it may take mental push on the listener's part.

A Lot Like Birds have melded a winning formula with Conversation Piece, in that the instrumental complexities match the schizophrenic vocals for the perfect itchen-sink mentality. Describing the band as a post hardcore band would be accurate but also unfortunate, as the inclusion of a horns section ("Vanity's Fair") and post rock-like build-ups ("Truly Random Code") lends to the idea that they are a bit more imaginative than most bands of an unfortunately watered down genre. Ultimately A Lot Like Birds have given an incredibly strong album to fans of post hardcore, and though it is an incredibly involved listen, it is certainly worth the endeavor. The album seems to be a bit front-loaded with the stronger songs, but the lack of monotony more than makes up for that.
