    Bright Eyes - Fevers & Mirrors

    Year: 2000

    At the tender age of 20, Conor Oberst, as Bright Eyes, released a wordy, personal, youthful, uncertain, wise-beyond-his-years album called Fevers & Mirrors. His imperfect singing, sometimes stragled, sometimes almost whiny conveys a whole range of emotions, and the produciton of Mike Mogis provides an intimate, log-cabin backdrop. All this helps to explain why this record resonates so deeply with so many people, and won Bright Eyes so many loyal fans, and if you haven't ever fallen in love with this album, or spent hours trying to decipher the meanings of Oberst's lyrics, you've missed out on somewhat of a rite of passage
