Bright Eyes

Fevers And Mirrors

Dead Oceans 284.2

Released on May 27, 2022


It's the desire to celebrate their sonic bounty that first got Oberst and the band excited about the idea of comprehensive reissues. But this wouldn't be a Bright Eyes project if a moment devoted to appreciating the past weren't turned into an opportunity to connect with the future. That's where the nine companion EPs come in. Or as Oberst puts it, "the supplemental reading" for the primary reissues: One six-track EP per reissued album, each featuring five reworked songs from that album. "My thing was they had to sound different from the originals, we had to mess with them in a substantial way." Plus one cover that felt "of the era" in which that particular albums was made - a song that meant something to the band at the time. To help the EPs come alive in the fullest way, Bright Eyes called in lots of old friends, like Bridgers, M. Ward, and Welch and Rawlings, as well as new ones like Katie Crutchfield of Waxahatchee.

I sure do love me some Bright Eyes. This is certainly not the happiest of their albums, but it is very, very good. Songs that will move you to tears and send chills through your body. Warning: Keep all sharp objects at a safe distance before popping in this CD. It's a doozy. Plus, the album cover contains an actual mirror, so you can check yourself out while you listen! Woo!

This is different than most of the bright eyes albums that have come out more recently. It's a little darker and is a little difficult to get into at first. But once you listen to it a few times it will quickly become one of your favorite bright eyes albums. I recomend buying the record on this one, the cd doesn't do the music enough justice.

Im glad i didnt review this cd until a while after i bought it, because my first reaction was not all that great. But now i wonder if it is my favorite bright eyes cd. Its hard to say, but this is a fantastic album worth more than 5 stars. I simply love "the calender hangs itself", "something vague" and "a song to pass the time". marvelous songs.

although its true that bright eyes and connor oberst have been blown a little out of proportion, it would be a lie to say this album doesn't show clear talent from him. probably my favorite bright eyes cd, fevers and mirrors is a little more acceptable than lifted was at first, and yet it doesn't sacrifice any of the unique characteristics of oberst's music. very emotional both lyrically and musically, this is definately a cd worth buying.

I bought this CD along with Lifted for a friend for Christmas. She loves it so I'll give this a five.

C'est un excellent cd. Conor Oberst a mit toutes ses émotions dans ce cd. Toutes le tounes sont bonne. C'est le meilleur cd que j'ai entendu de Bright eyes et je le recommande à tous ceux qui sont des fans de bright eyes. Et ceux qui aime pas Bright Eyes, aller donc chier. Conor Oberst est un vrai poète émotionnel qui transfère ses émotions a l'auditeur. Vous devez acheter ce cd

great album. pretty much what you would expect from conor. it flows great from one song to the other but after you hear 'an attempt to tip the scales' a couple times the fake interview kinda gets old and you just skip it. nonetheless, this cd is worth getting just for something vague alone. buy this album!

I hadn't heard that much of Bright Eyes before I ordered this along with the "Lifted..." cd. The main reason I bought these two albums, though, is because he's playing a show in Norway in about a month.

I received this item 5 days ago, and Bright Eyes have firmly established themselves as on of my favourite artists. That doesn't happen often. It usually takes awhile before I can talk of a band as warmly as about Bright Eyes.

His lyrics are great, his talent is obvious, and the melodies are amazing. If you cover those two criteria, you're well on your way! I can't wait to see Conor live, and I'm eagerly awaiting his next two simultaneous releases.

One of the greatest almbums I have every bought. I am officially obsessed. I listen to this CD every day. I love it. My personal favorite on the album would have to be At the center of the world.
