Album Review

Nebraska's Bright Eyes are graduates from the Midwestern school of Britpop. With Fevers and Mirrors being their third full-length release, a strong adaptation of Radiohead, Blur, and Suede is conveniently wrapped up in a neat lo-fi package. But without completely ripping anyone off, Bright Eyes feature their own cadence of loose indie and shaky, emotional vocals. The results amount to a catchy collection of elaborate pop that's been perfectly captured on a nickel budget.

Customer Reviews

Prodigious but pretentious talent

This is an interesting album - he has produced better since (I'm Wide Awake) and some of the experimental stuff on this one doesn't really work- BUT there are some superbly painful observations, most notably SOMETHING VAGUE, one of oberst's finest moments during which he spits out gallons of razor-laced hurt that any indie kid will wholly empathise with. The songs are sometimes rough at the edges and he can get carried away with his anguish but dipping into it is worthwhile.

Fevers and Mirrors

This was the first Bright Eyes album I bought and it is definetly one of my favourites. The first song is a little pointless but from there the album gets better and better. The lyrics are so meaningful and brilliantly written, it makes this album definetly one to buy. A few of my favourite tracks are "Something vague", "Haligh, Haligh, a Lie, Haligh" and " The calendar Hung itself". This is a brilliant record and should not be missed

"Now and again it seems worse than it is, but mostly the view is accurate."

Although I do think Conor's inexperience at the time this album was written/mixed is visible, or audible even, especially when compared to "I'm Wide Awake...", etc. I love the rawness of the album; I feel I am able to connect to it more than any other Bright Eyes album - or any other album, in fact. I think this is my favourite album of all time - the lyrics are profound, and the album as a whole is versatile, I feel every song has its own merit. My personal favourite is the short track with the interview - "Did you expect it all to stop at the wave of your hand? Like the sun's just gonna drop if it's night you demand..." He's a lyrical genius. Something Vague is another classic. The album may not be considered perfect, but that is probably because it's not polished like most albums are. And that's what makes it truly amazing. You have to realise that this opinion is really biased - I truly believe Bright Eyes are the best thing that ever happened to music, and I doubt I'd consider anything Conor's ever done short of genius.

Although many musicians have joined the band's rotating lineup, Bright Eyes is primarily the songwriting vehicle of Conor Oberst, a quivery-voiced Nebraska native who first attracted attention in 1994 -- when he was only 14 years old -- as the singer and guitarist for Commander Venus. Oberst proved to be a prolific musician, joining multiple bands (including Commander Venus, the Magentas, Park Ave., and Desaparecidos) while also co-founding Saddle Creek, an influential label that helped broadcast...
