I'm sure that Conor would totally agree with you about what constitutes a bright eyes fan "You have to only like my old stuff,.. If you like anything that I've done recently then you're not a true bright eyes fan" - Conor Oberst

What does it matter when you came to a band? I heard every album they put out within around a month, and I think 'plans' has the best melodies, and arrangements (his lyrics are always pretty good). If anything, your view is warped by having heard the early albums first, and then deciding to dismiss the later albums because they were more popular/maybe you came in with certain expectations for how the later albums should sound, instead of taking them on their own merit.

'Plans' should be number 1.. Great songwriting, lyrics and arrangements. Their early albums sound pretty bland to me, like Elliott Smith, minus the good songs.

This comment makes me smile, because, while I agree Pitseleh is great (although not in my top 10), i remember watching a youtube performance of Elliott's, where someone called out for him to play it, and he replied... "Pitseleh's long and boring"... Then he obviously felt bad about saying it, and added something like "but that's just one opinion".

This could be awesome.l. Really hope this doesn't signal the end of Spoon. handsome Furs/Wolf Parade breaking up was bad enough.

I could definitely hear bono singing 'Heaven'... Especially the "Remember, Remember" bit... Bu apart from that I don't think the album is overly U2 influenced

Really? I wonder how big of a role the length and density of 1q84 played in the success of the Hunger Games

Ok.... I've actually read all these books (i was getting super bored reading 1Q84 and needed something mindless to break it up)... The first book is page turning, not particularly well written, but a fun, easy book to resd... The 2nd one is pretty much a carbon copy of the first (with a twist!) and the third one was terrible, and sucked all of the fun out of the original concept (also, the ending depressed the hell out of me)

Such a great band, with such a boring and typical sounding band name.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=F8xBv-RnfFk It's weird that neither pitchfork or stereogum picked up on this, they've both been calling it a completely new song

this isn't a "new" new song... it's just a band version of that acoustic song that we heard a couple months back... sounds good though.

I do understand that he can't make the same album over an over again (or at least, shouldn't), and don't blame him for stretching his sound, and adding new elements... I just felt like he didn't quite pull it off at times on Heartland, while maintaining what is already unique in his sound In other words, noone else writes songs like the ones he wrote on 'He Poos Clouds' and 'Has a good home'.. and now, not even he does... and i wish someone would.
