Since 2006 the once revolving cast of Bright Eyes players has settled around permanent members Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott, with additional musicians joining them in the studio and on tour. Fully realized and bursting with charisma, The People’s Key is an assured and accomplished album, artfully arranged and filled with the engaging and mesmeric songwriting for which ...

I first heard Bright Eyes a few years ago, and I rushed out to get the 'I'm wide awake, it's morning' CD. Yet it's only recently that I discovered this little gem, and I'm so glad I did.

Conor Oberst has an amazing talent for expressing emotions with his awe-inspiring lyrics and raw, passoionate voice. This album is a great collection that fully shows this young man's abilities. My favourite track has to be 'motion sickness', as it's a very sweet song and the guitars on it are amazing, but I also like 'I've been eating for you' and 'Happy birthday to me (February 15th)'. This album hasn't left my CD player since I got it, and I would urge anyone who is a fan of bright eyes, ben gibbard or willy mason to get this album...it really is beautiful beyond words.

I have bought both the vinyl and CD version of this album.

It is without a doubt an amazing album, although the songs were not purposely written for this album, I have downloaded or heard the songs and wanted them on a cd and never dreamt they'd be released on one, not to mention onto vinyl!

All of the songs are unique and there are a few amazing collaborations with The Album Leaf, another amazing band, as well as a couple of cover songs.

This will nicely round off your bright eyes collection until the next album release and i advise all bright eyes fans to buy it!

Surprise Surprise 25 Nov 2006
By Catherine Rubsam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I really was blown away by how good this album turned out to be. I'm serious when I say I was kind've turned off by the number of so-so reviews, but was I surprised by how well this album came together. Many of the songs are really well made, and the song-writing remains top-notch. Granted, this album won't convert any new listeners, but rarities albums never are ment for that. They give out new tracks when the artist is doing something else. And since all these songs are out-of-print, you really can't buy them anywhere else.

The actual quality is amazing. I really don't like recomending certain songs, because other people just download a couple of songs instead of getting the whole album, which is the point, isn't it? But I must point out some of the simply amazing 16 tracks- Drunk Kid Catholic is brilliant, Spent on Rainy Days has a feverish energy, The Vanishing Act is well made, and as a whole this album is worth buying for Bright Eyes fans. It should NOT be a first pick for someone who hasn't heard Connor Oberst before, but that's not why this album was released. A nice album for fans, though. And a standard for all rarities albums.

A Great Compilation 11 Jan 2007
By Miles Rausch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album had many songs that I've heard once or twice on the occassional odd EP I would discover on the internet and then lose. It has a great range of songwriting, and the liner notes include comments on the songs creation.

Compilation Sensation 5 Nov 2006
By L. Mckinley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In my experience compilations and "best of" CDs rarely function as a cohesive whole. That is why I was surprised that the songs on this album flowed together so well, especially since each song was recorded at a different time and for varying purposes.

My only complaint, as a die-hard Bright Eyes fan who also lacks a turntable, would be that the CD version is missing several tracks that are on the LP which can be purchased on the Saddle-Creek site.

Lyrical Excellence. 22 April 2008
By Samm. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is my favourite Bright Eyes album. The lyrics are pure and honest. It has a very nice variety of styles, from songs that sound like they belong on Digital Ash to beautiful cover songs, my favourite cover being Devil Town. I think that this album was definitly worth buying, 100%. For me, the highlights of the album would have to be Happy Birthday to Me (February 15) and I've Been Eating (For You). The lyrics are wonderful and presented beautifully.
If you're just getting into Conor Oberst's stylistic writing then I recommend you buy I'm Wide Awake or Lifted but for the long-time Bright Eyes fan this would be #1 on my list.

A Great Collection 7 Jan 2008
By Ian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you have been listening to bright eyes since the stone ages, and are obsessed with Connor Oberst's superior songwriting, you probably want to hear everything the band has to offer. One thing about most of Bright Eyes' albums is they all have a theme or a general sound. Instead of that, the Noise Floor is comprised of songs that were not bad, but were written at the wrong time to fit into the CD that was being written at the time. Then some songs are from way back in the past, one of them even dating back to 1998. Individually the songs are great, and some of my favorites. If you love any of Bright Eye's songs you will enjoy those of this album.
