Album Review

Bright Eyes' Every Day and Every Night EP establishes Conor Oberst as a teenage genius. The Omaha native explores themes as distant as love and divorce and as oblique as the meaning of youth with an unexpected amount of maturity. Oberst's showcase is "A Perfect Sonnet," a brilliant piece involving his voice and an acoustic guitar. Midway through the song, drums and other guitars appear, pushing Oberst's voice to a level of intensity not heard since Hüsker Dü's "Girl Who Lives on Heaven Hill." The breathtaking vocal croaks, cries, and moans on a single syllable. The cuts on Every Day and Every Night could pass as Okie folk songs or lo-fi indie rock; his songwriting and tone is that good. The pedal steels during "On My Way to Work" feel just as genuine as the looped beats in "Neely O'Hara." What is most impressive about Oberst and his Bright Eyes project is how he manages to tackle so many issues, so many styles, and so many emotions, yet each feels as meaningful and honest as the last. Simply put, the best singer/songwriter record in ten years.

Customer Reviews

this is it

Like so many preludes... like the deep thunder far off before a storm and a lightning strike... in retrospect this EP from Connor let us all know more was to come... more words of honest emotion... more music to stimulate the depleated energy source of American made creativity and more hope for modern music. Since this EP was followed with the brilliant and often life affirming Digital Ash... it is only fair to hope that yet another new revelation will be on it's way soon from Mr. Oberst. It seems in a world of copycats that a new prowler is stalking us... moving randomly from folk to electronic sonnets. My hope is that this new hep-cat keeps his heart's ear tuned to the things that concern his art evolution and that he almost forgets we aree even listening as he continues to make inspired tracks for us to add to our playlists. Buy as many tunes from Bright Eyes as you can handle - you ears and hearts will thank you.

And like Neely O'Harra, you swallow your sleep...

I bought this CD at a downtown music shop on a whim when I was only beginning to get into Bright Eyes, and I figured it was a full-length album--the back of the CD cover didn't have a track listing on it, and it was $9, the price of a regular album at that particular store. I went home and unwrapped it only to find that it was an EP, and that I had paid $9 for only five songs. I was disappointed, but any regret I had disappeared the moment I hit the "play" button-- the songs were absolutely incredible. Conor's voice is laden with an overdose of breathtaking emotion on every track, and his lyrics are stunning as always. Each song--"Neely O'Hara" in particular--has an ambient, ominous feel that leaves you haunted long after the track has finished. I couldn't help but stop everything I was doing and just listen, sitting and staring into space and simply letting the emotions sink in. While having a drastically different feel compared to the much more popular "I'm Wide Awake It's Morning," this EP is truly a work of art.

Amazing

Simply an amazing EP, "A Perfect Sonnet" is my favorite Bright Eyes song. Conner's voice conveys an amazing sense of sorrow/jealousy/longing throughout this song. Simple put, amazing.

Although many musicians joined the band's rotating lineup, Bright Eyes was 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...
