5.0 out of 5 stars Business as usual..., 17 Feb. 2011
This review is from: The People's Key (Audio CD)
Many folk are saying that this is the best CD that Conor has ever released... To be honest this put me off a little. You know how hype goes. Your high expectations usually leave you disappointed.

The People's Key is a great album but this is nothing unusual, if you look back over his catalogue. Conor Oberst seems to just keep churning out fantastic music without too much effort. I own 26 of his releases to date but I think there are 29 in total. I have located the missing three online and will order them soon but just take a second to take that in... 29 releases, in his modest years that is just plain remarkable.

So is this release his best to date?
Well with questions like this, it comes down to opinion and as a better man than I once said "Opinions are like arseholes, everybody has one!"
This is a great album, that's about as far as I will venture. As far as comparing it to any of the others, I couldn't pick a favourite really... In the same way that you couldn't pick a favourite child. I love them all!

As with most Bright Eyes releases, there is the strange introductions to get past. These are used to ward off any casual listeners. Most of these add a lot to the rest of the CD but I did find the introduction to this album a little less than great. It's just some guy rambling on about religion and the begining of the world. I am not religious and I did find this intro a little silly but taken with a pinch of salt, it won't cause any problems.

All in all a great release, a worthy addition to his collection and yet another example of the genius that is Conor Oberst!
