Conor Oberst and Bright Eyes

I'm just interested to see anyone's opinions of this lo-fi indie band. I, personally, can respect the songwriting, which is amazing, and Oberst's ability to be unique and yet keep it simple.

But you don't care what I think, I wanna know what you think.

I do love Bright Eyes, and most of his songs, there's jsut a few that I can't stand.

erm, that's about all I have to say.

but remember, he doesn't look like jake gyllenhaal guys!

Bright Eyes aren't Lo-Fi. They're indie rock.

Same.

Oh and about Sorry About Dresden, is their Let It Rest album any good?

I have their The Convenience Of Indecision album, just was wondering if Let It Rest was worth getting..

i cant stand bright eyes...i bought that one cd...listening to the ground or whatever it was called because everyone was so hyped up about him. i gave it a few weeks and i couldnt do it. he became very annoying. and then reading about how much of an asshole he is didnt make it easier to listen to the CD. then finding out he's a drunk and was totally oblilerated when i saw him live also didnt help.

he's a douche bag.

i can stand some of his songs.... but his voice annoys me... and in fact most of his songs annoy me...

theres a cpl i like on 'Lifted' and some of his mellower acoustic ones... but maybe thats just because he;s quieter?

I think that there are two sides to Conor, the passive-nice,shy, sad guy. And then there is the pretentious cokehead asshole.

But, his music is absolutely amazing.

i really dont think his music is amazing. his lyrics can be clever and witty but folk music is not amazing. and having an awful voice is not amazing.

now and then he turns a clever phrase...

...but how that makes up for the other 96.2% of the time when he's being a star-****ing, join-every-****ing-liberal-cause-ever-not-cause-its-intelligent-cause-its-liberal, whiny, childlike, drunkard...is beyond me

oh you know he did in that one picture jallas and you know it

well as you can tell by my avatar i love him in every way

the only bad songs I've heard from him were from the collection but he was like 14 so its forgivable and there are also some amazing songs on there to

his live show can either be amazing or a piece of crap depending on how drunk he is all 3 times i saw him it was amazing

Okay, honestly, where's everyone's getting this "he's a cocky douchbag" thing from?

I've read most of his interviews and he seems pretty modest for the most part.

Really, if you pay attention, it's usually the interviewer trying to make him look like a douchbag?

Interviewer: So we just listened to your album, and it's incredible. In fact, it's the best thing ever created. You are the next Bob Dylan. Your songs are so beautiful with flawless lyrics. You're pretty much God. So .........you're only twenty right?


Oberst :....uh...right, I'm twenty.

:Then editing comes:

Interviewer: So we just listened to your album, and it's incredible. In fact, it's the best thing ever created. You are the next Bob Dylan. Your songs are so beautiful with flawless lyrics. You're pretty much God.


Oberst :right.

You know the funny thing is the people who actually waste their time hating Oberst and telling everyone how they hate him are usually the people who take him so seriously.
