01.25.19 Favorite Conor Oberst Albums

Favorite Conor Oberst Albums

Was obsessed with his Bright Eyes material in high school, been getting back into his music the past few years. Still need to give some of his solo albums / side projects more listens

Cape Canaveral is one of my favorite songs that he's written but the rest of the album just doesn't quite hold up for me.

Need to give this more listens but from the few spins I've given it, seems to be a bit of a return to form as far as pouring his heart out goes.

Went to see him in concert for the first time while he was touring these songs, this is the album that got me back into his music after years of leaving it on the shelf. I find a lot of the lyrical content here more relatable at this point. Tempted to put this one above Wide Awake, but the highs on that album are keeping this below it.

I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning

Obviously a classic and has some of his best songs, this one sees him starting to break out of the adolescent themes and energy of his earlier work.

Digital Ash in a Digital Urn

Have always felt that this album was criminally underrated. It's like nothing I had heard before, and for whatever reason, kept me coming back more than Wide Awake did.

Huge Phoebe Bridgers fan so the hype for this has been unreal. It ended up being everything that I could have hoped for, their styles blend together so seamlessly. It's his most inspired sounding and sonically interesting output since he dropped the Bright Eyes moniker. Could end up being my favorite thing he's done.
1Bright Eyes

Started out listening to Fevers and Mirrors / Lifted almost exclusively, but those albums have grown off of me a lot over the years. This one ended up being my favorite pretty quickly after hearing it and that hasn't changed. I'm a big fan of his country-folk band sound and, in my opinion, this has a lot of his best lyrics on it as well.
