I stayed away for a long time because I didn't like the type of people who like Bright Eyes, but I've since come around to the Bright Eyes camp. Great live, too.

I generally hate singer/songwriter type stuff, I dont see Bright Eyes in that light for some reason. They're totally worth a try. I really enjoy the albums of theirs that I have.

Bit of a misconception at play here: Bright Eyes is just one dude, Conor Oberst. He plays with a bunch of musicians, but he is the whole band.

He's also excellent.

Well, Bright Eyes technically is a band...it just has a revolving cast...with Conor Oberst being the one constant.

I found Conor irritating and self-absorbed when I saw them on Austin City Limits but he had great people playing with him. Then I read a worshipful review in the New York Times of his two-night stint in NYC and thought maybe I'd give them another chance. But I haven't yet.
