Nik’s Music Almanac

Totally Irrelevant and Off-Topic

Bright Eyes

As much a “project” as a band. This is a difficult group to categorize. It’s basically Conor Oberst + other people, doing whatever he feels like doing.

I enjoy the two albums I have, but like poetry, it's the kind of thing you need to experience in small doses. Unless you're really in a bad/sad place, then you need lots of it. This Urban Dictionary definition sums it up better than I can.

Sounds like: Conor Oberst, and Friends.

Lyrics:

And I hang like a star, f-ing glowing in the dark, for all the starving eyes to see.
