I heard alot of fuckin hype for this album, and when i heard the album, they didnt succeed to match, yeah... I love bright eyes, i love Conor Oberst, and yeah i love al that shit, but this album was that great, its a good album, but its got alot more of a sappy sad wahh to it, and dont get me wrong i know the motherfuckers a sad guy, but... this album seems kinna hipster-ish, i like it, soon someday, hopefully ill love it like the wrest of Bright eyes albums, but if i was you id let it be the 4th or 5th buy from bright eyes, id pick up im wide awake, its morning album first, if yer tryin to get into them, but yeah i wasnt disapointed, i guess i just let the public hype get the best of me or some shit like that... Buy it if yoiur a fan, youll like it but its not amazing , thats all im tryin to day.

Duh, this cd is fantastic! The lyrics are actually meaningful unlike those crappy bands out there. What else did you expect from Conor Oberst?

Awesome Album! Great lyrics! Sometimes a little depressing but wicked if your looking for something kind of mellow- great if your feeling down...really relaxing!

by far one of the best cds i have ever purchased, if you are just getting into bright eyes i recomend purchasing this cd quicly, but dont buy it through interpunk, just go to best buy, it is cheaper and you dont have to wait for shipping, it is a great great album, a bit slow but thats just how bright eyes rolls son,

Come on everyone, it's Bright Eyes, what more must i say. Perfect from start to finish. If you like to be depressed and feel sorry for yourself then this is perfect(i meant that in the best way possible) Nothing Get's Crossed Out, Days Gonna Come, Bowl of Oranges, From A Balance Beam, Waste of Pain, Make War. All amazing songs, buy this then buy Fevers and Mirrors. Do it Now!

Wow! This is music that will change your outlook on life. It is nothing short of amazing. Conor Oberst is simply a lyrical genius. This is my all time favorite. Fans of Bright Eyes, check out Desaparecidos.
