oh my god I just had a baby
I've never listened to Bright Eyes. What album should I start with?
I just came.
trailofdead91: I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning or Lifted...
Probably the former.
I would start with 'I'm Wide Awake It's Morning,' the album 'Lifted' is actually the best but it can be a little hard to digest
Never listened to these guys. Guess this is as good a time as any. Guess I will follow Knott's advice.
Digging: Gang of Youths - Go Farther in Lightness
So excited for this. Hopefully it's less like Cassadaga and more like Lifted... or I'm Wide Awake.
I'd be happy even if it's as good as Cassadaga, but agreed.
Fuck yes. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck yes. So excited. Not a fan of Conor's solo stuff so I can't wait for this. I pretty much love anything under the Bright Eye's name.
excuse me while i go get some windex and a paper towel to wipe the cum from my monitor.
Oh yeah! I knew this was going to happen soon.
and Sputnik rejoices!
Semen, semen everywhere.
very excited for this.
Can't wait for this
Those wanting lifted... or I'm wide awake, forget it. You already know his music has changed in so many good ways. It will be different. Every Bright Eyes album is different. Just be happy its no doubt going to be good.. Cassadaga, Conor Oberst, Mystic Valley, Monsters of folk. Listen to how his music has drastically matured.
MilesJames you are one of the few that thinks that the "new direction" is better. Beer me "I'm Wide Awake" and "Lifted" over any of the new stuff anyday.
Cassadaga took a while to grow but it's really damn good.
This really feeds my current Conor Oberst obsession. fuck yeah
If it's like that Mystic Valley band record I'll vomit everywhere but I'm sure it won't be. That shit was terrible.
oh my god. oh my god. OH MY GOD
Digging: The National - Sleep Well Beast
I see a lot of love for "Wide Awake" and "Lifted" on here, but no love for "Fevers". Really guys? I thought that was easily his best.
im impressed with the amount of jizz in this thread. it makes me hungry.
i guess this is what he has to do to get people excited about his music after two subpar releases under his actual name...
"but no love for "Fevers". Really guys? I thought that was easily his best."
Lifted > Wide Awake > Fevers
How the fuck was his self-titled 'subpar'?!
i dono man i just didnt really dig it... but to be honest i didnt spin it all that much
Awesome news. I've been waiting on this for a while.
Should be good.
wheres the love for digital ash? best album bright eyes has ever done.
goooooooooood news. like pretty much all of his stuff except mystic valley
oh and Fever > I'm Wide Awake >= Lifted > Digital Ash= Cassadaga> Letting off the Happiness
NO FUCKING WAY!!!
Nothing wrong with the songs per se, but I felt that Cassadaga was a little overproduced. Fevers unpolished production on the other hand IMO better captures the feelings conveyed in Conor's lyrics. Anyway this is great news, next year will be a good music year, it seems.
yes they were, lime tree specially is so awesome.
