Desaparecidos still sound incredible. Why is Bright Eyes so shit?
it's got to do with this oberst fellow, but i've always admired art garfunkel's 'watership down' theme. exemplary.
but dont think bright eyes are shit, which albums are you basing that on?
stuff off Fevers and Mirrors.
And Oberst is definitely NOT hot. I think that is more controversial than saying Bright Eyes are shit.
I think you would like letting off the happiness, it is less folk/country than other bright eyes albums more indie rock but not as full on as desaparecidos. And fevers and mirrors is such a grower, the hardest bright eyes album to get into but the best once you have.
is one of my favourite albums ever. You're not allowed to just universally declare shit-ularity! no fair :(
it's his third best record.
made me remember how when i was 15, i loved Read Music Speak Spanish and had forgotten about it completely until about......15 minutes ago
Bright Eyes back when i was 17/18, i loved him actually. but now, 8 years later, i really dont like listening to him, but i'm assuming that i just got bored??? or maybe it was just back then, late 90s early 2000s that his sound was good and now in this day and age it isn't???? i'm not sure if certain years matter, whether there is certain atmosphere or whatnot to do with it?? (ok this sounds crazy?? but umm ya)
Thought his last album was pretty damn good and its up there for my album of the year. 'Read Music Speak Spanish' is fantastic though.
Bright Eyes are great - Fevers and Mirrors, Lifted and I'm Wide Awake It's Morning are still terrific. Digital Ash isn't too shabby either
Cassadaga was a huge disappointment though.
And yeah to reiterate, Bright Eyes are great.
manana is the bestest song in da whole wide world innit.
and Desaparecidos are great. Digital Ash is one of my favourite albums I think, but it is more indivisual songs which stand out, such as No Lies, Just Love. That is a brilliant song.
i might dig my copy out and give it a listen this evening.
are both incredible.
Reminds me of that thread on the 'forgotten' Bad Religeon album. Read Music is a GREAT album, but Oberst seems somewhat ashamed of it...
but he isnt complete shit otherwise
But I can't get over how much I really really don't like his Bright Eyes stuff. It's a stumbling block.
but I can't find the album anywhere. Anyone know where I can steal it?
