5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - muscle-clenching lyrics and sweeping music, 1 July 2001
Not having heard any of the other Bright Eyes (the brainchild of Conor Oberst) albums (yet) I was ...pleased to discover how enjoyable this album is. Starting with the first song that manages to mirror the building frustration of the lyrics in the mounting intensity of the music, continuing with the harrowing second song (whose haunting lyrics begin with "i had a brother once, he drowned in a bathtub before he had ever learned how to talk") and following through to the very last track this is a collection of beautiful, intelligent, heartfelt songs that leave you emotinally drenched, but happy at having had the experience.
