this album is just terrible. His singing is terrible, his songwriting has no emotion, and the band just sucks. Overall this is probably the most dissapointing record of 2009.

I thought breaking away from Bright Eyes would result in a series of great albums. Unfortunately, I was wrong. After last years great self titled, we get this pile mediocrity. Only a few songs are any good, and that doesn't say much for a 16 song album. You almost get the feeling Oberst is trying to mimic Dylan here and make his own Basement Tapes, except when Oberst tries it, the songs don't have half the wit or hazy brilliance that Dylan's recordings with the Band did.

As everyone else has said, big thumbs down.This Message Edited On 05.05.09

this is an excellent review.

i'm still a huge fan of old bright eyes, up to Lifted pretty much and then I still like Digital Ash because it was the first bright eyes record i heard nostalgia blah blah blah. this new stuff, though, i can't stand at all.

yeah they played "snake hill" last year when I saw them and it's still just as awful. but there's an "I Got A Reason #1" that should have made the cut. it was actually good...

Maybe he is hot?

...Nah.

I genuinely find something endearing about everything released as Bright Eyes though, and I love his 2008 self-titled. But this sucks.

Avirov I was just about to say that about the Desaparecidos.

Srsly, the definitive Conor Oberst collection:

Lifted
Read Music, Speak Spanish
Fevers and Mirrors
I'm Wide Awake
Cassadaga
Conor Oberst

album-wise at least; however, his older eps are amazing, especially Motion Sickness and the like.

this album, by first listen, is not worthy of this list.This Message Edited On 05.05.09

This is definitely somewhat of a disappointment. I'd say the downfall of this record after the great MVB debut is that this is actually written and sung on by the band instead of solely Conor, especially after watching the documentary they released.

That being said though, I'm surprised there's no love for White Shoes? I love that song... I like Air Mattress, Nikorette, Roosevelt Room, and I Got a Reason too. A lot of the songs though are just crap.
