#9 of 2007: Bright Eyes - Four Winds/Cassadaga

Thirty-One Words: The EP (Four Winds) and LP (Cassadaga) released this year by Bright Eyes are Oberst’s most mature yet. The highlight has to be his duet with M Ward on the EP.

The one song that makes it worth $9.95/$17.95: "Smoke without Fire"/"If the Breakman Turns My Way"

Pitchfork Says: 5.9/6.0

Again, we're going to have to agree to disagree. I liked the album okay, and the artwork was neat, but the line "Yeah I've made love/Yeah I've been fucked/So what?" I think it's the worst line ever.

It is a little "young-Oberst-y" isn't it?
