I'm Wide Awake is best to get first.

But, Fevers And Mirrors is his best album.

I disagree.

It's probably the weakest album, bar a collection of songs and digital. They're all great; don't get me wrong, but the others are ****ing mind blowing.

Fevers and Mirrors

and

Lifted

for the win.


If you don't get them, you don't get Bright Eyes, in my opinion. Anyone can like the catchyness of I'm wide awake, but it takes a better ear to appreciate the integrity of the others.

hm.. i think Im Wide Awake is actually the best start to finish album. It just reels off good song after good song

i love lifted and fevers but i dont think theyre quite as good as Wide Awake

and i agree, if you dont like lifted or fevers, Bright Eyes probably isnt your band. Its a somewhat acquired taste

he wasn't saying that IWAIM is the best album, he said it's probably the best to start off with.

which I agree with.

I didn't say he was?

I just said that you shouldn't start there, and then went on to say that it's the weakest.

Thank-you.

It's probably his most accessible album, meaning it is therefore the best one to get first.

Okay this is my opinion on Bright Eyes/ Conor Oberst.

Iv heard Conor is a "prick" but Iv never heard any good evidence of it. I know he gets wasted at alot of his shows and I personally think thats pretty lame for him to do that so often but whatever.


Now for his music, I downloaded a torrent for his WHOLE DISCOGRAPHY. Litteraly every single Bright Eyes Album, Split, you name it. Even all his side projects (desapericidos, park ave., commander venus, etc.). I can safely say the guy can write a good tune with some pretty cool lyrics. But by god hes got so many songs where he just rambles and they blend together and god almighty I get sick of them fast. Those are the songs that make to think hes overrated. Like I said before, hes got skill when it comes to writing good music with some very clever lyrics, but the guy has got a cult behind him where people listen to him and assume hes some sort of a genius after hearing a couple good songs. Hes good, but Iv heard much better in my life and I think hes just overrated. Thats my opinion atleast.

That's why I wouldn't agree. People would expect more of the same, whereas his other stuff is alot more varied and different.

It's just my opinion, it doesn't end anything.

honestly, i haven't listened to IWAIM more than 10 times since i bought it, on the day it was released. it never stood out, for me. half the songs are a little boring and i usually skip over them. i've definitely always been a bigger fan of digital ash. less skipping.

Sunrise, Sunset may be the hardest Bright Eyes song to sing.

this is one of the more heated debates i've seen, connor sparks alot of different feelings obviously.

i absolutely love his stuff. you have to give him credit for being original, creative and loyal to his record label and not selling out to badly as of yet. I can see how most people are feeling and saying about his music. It is alittle folk sounding (just listen to 'Lua' or 'At The Bottom Of Everything'), but noone can say that he sucks or that he's not talented.

I like Bright Eyes. I'm from Omaha so I've seen him live a few times (I'm going to see him on June 16th...for free!) and it's always been a good show. He does get drunk on stage (drunker I should say) and it only seems to affect his performance towards the end of the show. He seems nice for the most part. As far as albums go, I think Letting Off the Happiness is one of my favorites.
