I can't work it out.
but i think letting off happiness is severely underrated
and lifted is a little over rated
Lifted = I'm Wide Awake > Digital Ash > Fevers and Mirrors >> Letting off the Happiness
The top four are all amazing though.
lifted=im wide awake>digital ash=fevers and mirrors.
thats all ive got though.
digital ash (very slightly)> Wide awake > lifted > fevers and mirrors > happiness.
But i'm almost always wrong.
fevers and mirrors > wide awake > letting off the happiness > digital ash > lifted
got me into Bright Eyes, and I still love it the most.
without a doubt
letting off the happiness
I'm wide awake.
Fevers and Mirrors
I'm Wide Awake
Letting Off The Happiness
Every Day and Every Night would be between 2 and 3
lifted > i'm wide awake > digital ash = fevers & mirrors = noise floor > every day & every night = letting off the happiness
i feel it unfair to rate the christmas album in such a way, although the cover of 'blue christmas' is ace.
then fevers & mirrors
I really can't stand it. And Bright Eyes is one of my favourite artists.
For ep's and split ep's, the list goes:
One jug of wine
Every day and every night
Oh Holy fools
Don't be firghtened of turning the page.
Every Day and Every Night owns One Jug of Wine. Apart from that you're right though.
I like Digital Ash you pervert if only for Easy/Lucky/Free AND Gold Mine Gutted AND... I'll stop, but you're wrong
i wish jimmy tamborello had produced the whole thing, i think it would've been an equal to i'm wide awake.. if he had..
lifted > i'm wide awake = read music/speak spanish > digital ash = fevers & mirrors = noise floor > every day & every night = letting off the happiness
not Conor Oberst
i've never really been convinced it was so much of a collaberative effort, though. i get the feeling he didn't want it out under the bright eyes name because it would detract away from lifted, which as i understand it was why he killed the band in the end anyway.
it'll stay a one-off though
The kind you find in record shops and JUMP about in excitement.
In fact...it has to be played NOW.
What's New For Fall?
which is harsh.
AND they didn't get Popn' Off at The F
even if you have a complete discography, you need it for 'weather reports' because it's gorgeous and an absolute shame it was never released.
get motion sickness (to be a completist). It has lots of good stuff on it.
Ignore the cover of mushaboom though. Its crap.
i like motion sickness. the elliott smith cover is nice.
It has lots of good stuff on it.
When it was a secret. Back in the day.. you know...
Bright Eyes is great.
although it will end in a knife fight.
like HOW can you hate DAIADU you chump.
you can't win 2 on 1
I saw Jason Molina last night!!
you were fucking sensational last night.
for losing my ticket to see myself.
for losing your ticket to see yourself.
got some good stuff on it.
Digital Ash in a Digital Urn.
I think the popier ones like take it easy, arc of time and hit the switch should have been a seperate ep, light polution should have been a desaparecidos song, that would have left a pretty solid album.
the bit where he screams "MY BIG HOUSE!" in 'hole in one' is probably the funniest moment on any oberst album.
conor rapping = very funny 'critics can suck dick, webboard heretics talking shit with the double click' actualol
Fun, Fun Destruction song. Good times LOLing at that.
what this is.
sounds amazing :D
if you would like
Lifted > Fevers & Mirrors > Digital Ash = Every Day & Every Night > I'm Wide Awake > Letting Off The Happiness.
I just, don't get I'm Wide Awake like everyone else does. I so much preferred Digital Ash. And I haven't listened to Noise Floor enough yet. And Motion Sickness doesn't count. And Fiest are shit.
not Feist. Keep up!
by Feist because of his comments about motion sickness. So go fuck yourself.
guntrip has the list in pretty good order.
is very hard on the ears. I only own it because I want the full set.
that make me go 'awwww' specifically exhaltation on a cool kitchen floor and a celebration upon completion
i'm going to order the four winds ep from the saddle creek US site ('cause it won't be out here) and i might get it at the same time, it was only $11 or something.
I got it for about £7.
for less than £10.
anyhoo, $11 is still less than £7 pretty much.
mr america. Just trying to help.
I could never get into Digital Ash.
Digital Ash is shit.
to choose a favourite cos they are all fairly different. I lvoe them all.
Collection of songs has some great pop songs hidden under the crappy recordings. And Digital Ash is really underrated, it needy a few listens for it to click but there are some great moments there.
And Letting off the happiness has Pull My hair. Nuff said.
best Bright Eyes song.
June on the West Coast.

Digital Ash In A Digital Urn
I haven't heard Noise Floor in it's released form but judging by the songs on it, it would probably be 3rd
I could write for hours and still not come to a conclusion...
so I'll just say IWAIM. Maybe.
it has loads of great songs. I think people don't like it because it sounds too produced.
Great songs on that album:
Land Locked Blues
First Day of my life
Train under water
At the bottom of everything
Although First Day is my least favourite track...
in a few minutes
Its a wonderful little song.
It is really, really nice. But it doesn't compare to the rest, all of which I love.
"i'd rather be working for a paycheck than waiting to win the lottery" line, in waste of paint he was all about waiting to win the lottery, first sign of his youthfull idealism slipping.
Although I've only heard that, and the latest two.
