You may have heard Bright Eyes and not have known it. This is the group that recorded Superman. "It's not easy being me." And It isn't easy being Conor Obern a lead singer with a voice like Bobcat Goldthwait. But, once you get used to it. It is so new and fresh and original that you have to have more. The three cuts on this Disc are nothing short of Truth and light and poetry.
Conor's voice has a unique childlike sensitive quality, a shy and hesitant vulnerability that makes us accept his sincerity subliminally.
Two cuts of this disk are a tour de force for that voice. The third cut is a Dylan style protest rant, and it is about time we hear more like it.
The three good cuts on this disk are more and better music than you are likely to find on any ten cut disk. On this one you just don't have to listen to the filler.
Every thought is clear, every note is tweaked just so. And the poetry is natural, easy, unaffected and heartfelt.
The politics, I confess are my own as well. It is good to hear someone at last standup to a fraud and a liar in a world with too much "Fox News".
Buy some extras and send them out for Christmas. Turn on your friends.
