Who let this happen? My idea of hell is Conor Oberst flopping his fringe over my Christmas turkey. However, he originally recorded this album of seasonal favourites to benefit Nebraska AIDS project, so we'll let him off. In any case, lots of you out there are in love with his sheep-like braying and boyish good looks. He owns two houses you know... and he's recently started eating meat again. More turkey for Conor then.
Bright Eyes' lead quiverer Conor Oberst's last album Ruminations was a a home produced, stark work featuring just his own voice, guitar and piano. He still wanted to record with a band though and so headed down to Malibu to record Salutations with a full rocking band in tow. This includes band versions of all the Ruminations tracks plus seven additional songs.

A reissue of Bright Eyes' 2002 full length release, Lifted Or The Story Is In The Soil. With equal parts folk and indie, frontman Conor Oberst's authentic and well-crafted songwriting is accompanied by his shaky Nebraska voice and diverse instrumentation including orchestral elements, a rock line-up and often just simple acoustic guitar. Released on Vinyl LP and CD on the Saddle Creek label.

Conor Oberst, aka Mr. Bright Eyes himself, has a new album of solo work. Ruminations was made according to the classic technique of sealing oneself away alone during the winter, and is a sparse affair involving Oberst and no-one else at all. Ruminations comes out on Nonesuch, with a nice poster slipped into the LP edition.
Here, have a massive motherload of Bright Eyes: six full albums from the era 2000 - 2011, each of them remastered to perfection. That comes to 6 CDs, or a back-breaking 10 LPs if you choose the vinyl box, which also includes photo prints and a new essay on Conor Oberst’s prime project. Limited edition boxes on Saddle Creek.
