This review is from: Digital Ash In A Digital Urn (Audio CD)
WOW! I listened to this album and was lost for words. The melodies created by Conor Oberst in this album are original but created effortlessly. His lyrics add a human, real aspect to the album that isn't lost behind the electronic effects. Particualr highlights would be "Arc of Time", "Gold Mine Gutted" and "Down in a Rabbit Hole" with its slightly clostrophbic atmosphere.
Though these tracks stand out to me as being of particular note they still blend into the album as a whole and create a cohessive sound through which the album flows.
Overall it may be a less accessible album than I'm Wide Awake... but it is an album that i believe everyone can find something in, it has that many different aspects. You might just have to listen to it a few times.
But you wont know unless you BUY IT.
