Bright Eyes is one of those strange artists, whose fans can never seem to agree on a single album to call his best. Conor Oberst’s sound evolves considerably from album to album, resulting in a varied, intimidating discography. Personally, my favorite of his albums is 2002’s Lifted Or The Story Is In The Soil, Keep Your Ear To The Ground. To me, it represents Bright Eyes at their best; dark, depressing, and more than a little angry. It’s also home to my all-time favorite Bright Eyes song, the the pessimistic electro-ballad, ‘Lover I Don’t Have To Love’. If you’re a Bright Eyes fan, you really need to hear this album.
