"When all your friends and sedatives

mean well, but make it worse."


So I am listening to, and have been listening to, the new Bright Eyes record like it is the gospel. It's not really the gospel and to be honest, I feel sort of like I did when I first heard "Digital Ash in a Digital Urn"; that is, there are tracks I really like and tracks I really don't like. You can really hear him reaching for Dylan in some places, not that I disagree with that or think he isn't entitled to give it a shot or shouldn't be compared to Dylan. Rolling Stone called it his America record, and I agree. I still think, though, that "I'm Wide Awake, it's Morning" is a much more solid record. Or well-rounded.
