A Collection of Songs Written and...
05/01/1998 | Spank | Album Review
A solid collection of lo-fi bedroom pop. It worked better with the added keyboards and distortion because it manages just the right balance of earnestness and irony. Not quite as accomplished as Moviola, the bare bones acoustic songs sounded pretty insipid. Talented enough, heartfelt enough, Bright Eyes have created a record that is powerfully endearing, if nothing else.
