making anguish enjoyable since 1995

This is a great album for wallowing in gloom. And for being d4rks1d3d. Okay yes, but it's awesome musically also. This album put Bright Eyes on the map as being basically ridiculously talented. The fusion of musical styles is the coolest. But I live to hear Conor Oberst whisper all his deepest, darkest secrets into the microphone and realize I felt Exactly The Same Way when I was in high school. One of the best albums from the best band.

This album is Bright Eyes' finest hour. From start to finish this is a terrific, teen-angsty album. It is beautiful and perfect and the best thing Bright Eyes has ever put out.

His singing isn't for everyone, but this album is hard to beat for shear raw emotion.

Memories indeed...

This album is full of the sort of unabashed malaise that you can probably only relate to at a certain time in your life. "An Attempt to Tip the Scales" and "Haligh, Haligh, A Lie, Haligh" are good intros. It's hard to separate nostalgia from substance, but when listening to this I can understand all the praise that was heaped on Oberst at the time.

This album was one of my first downloads at emusic (yes, it was there, then disappeared around the same time as unlimited downloads). People are free to roll their eyes all they like, but I still enjoy this album. Maybe it's my nostalgic relation to it, it definitely has an adolescent quality. But if you are interested in Bright Eyes, I would reccommend a listen.

36 Songs To Soothe the Pain

By Wondering Sound Staff, Contributor

Whether you're happily married or told Cupid to shove it a long time ago, we can all agree on one thing: to quote the one-and-only Nazareth, "Love hurts/ Love scars/ Love wounds/ And mars." Or something. That's why we went ahead and compiled a list of 36 Songs To Soothe the Pain, from the bloodletting confessionals of Neko Case, Bright Eyes and Sunny Day Real Estate to the melancholic melodies of Sigur Rós, the Shangri-Las… more »

They Say All Music Guide

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. – Mike DaRonco
