Fevers and Mirrors

( 12 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Mike DaRonco
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.

    The whole album is absolutely AMAZING!!!

    This is one of the best albums that i have ever listened to. I have heard a couple of Bright Eyes songs before but after I listened to this album, I'm eager for more. The vocalist is amazing and the guitar playing is even better. This music is truly touching and unforgettable and Bright Eyes is truly talented!

    The best of Oberst

    Oberst, my hero, really does his best on this cd. This collection is much better, in my opinion, than Lifted or any of the other cds. The stand out tracks to me are Haligh, Haligh, A Lie, Haligh and Something Vague. These are 2 of the best songs ever created.

    One of my favorite albums

    Bright Eyes was suggested to me by a friend whos musical opinion I do not trust. I introduced her to the cure with one of their dvd's and she said they were (not straight) because they wore makeup. I listened, told her it was O.K., and as soon as she left promptly bought Fevers and Mirrors. As accutely stated in another review, it is very emotionally demanding, which is the only reason I do not listen to it all the time. It is really beautiful.

    five and one hundred stars.

    this isn't pop. it's not rock, emo, folk, or indie. rip out your heart and record it. the end result would be something like this CD. stunning lyrics, brilliant music, and a a certain raw quality that makes it borderline perfect.

    Fevers and Mirrors

    Not since medieval times has there been a force so raw and talented as Conor Oberst and O my God! as formidable as the Knights of the Round Table. Rimbaud said, ¿¿Other horrible workers will come.¿ Bright Eyes is in our midst.
