So I just picked up the Conor cd. I am in love Get-Well-Cards. Reminds me of the Wallflowers. I still haven't finished listening to the whole album but it seems to be pretty solid.

Anyone else listen to it yet?

I used to be a huge fan of "Fevers and Mirrors" in the angsty years of 8th grade, but "Cassadaga" ruined Bright Eyes for me. Maybe I'll take a listen to the new album.

"The Calendar Hung Itself" and "Sunrise Sunset" could bring Tyler Durden to tears.

I stopped listening to him after "The Story is in the Soil...." It's just not my bag anymore.

One Foot in Front of the Other was my favorite song.

I would take Conor over Bob any day. I love Bob but I can only take so much of his voice. With that being said he is a lyrical god, but his music as a whole isn't really my deal. Now if Bob wrote the lyrics for Jakob's music, that would be awesome.

I heard that there's not going to be anymore Bright Eyes... I read in an interview somewhere that Connor is really digging the solo thing, and doesn't really want to go back to Bright Eyes. Can anyone confirm this?
