10/29/2006 | Boston Herald | | Album Review
At age 26, Conor Oberst (who records under the moniker Bright Eyes) has already recorded and released scores of songs. Now he's got the nerve to release 16 more on a collection of B-sides, covers and unreleased tracks. After a tough beginning filled with two awkward minutes of noisy, hissing chatter, he launches into ``Mirrors and Fevers'' with a nakedness that would make Elliott Smith blush. Over the next hour, Oberst is the lo-fi hero Beck used to be. Download: ``I Will Be Grateful for This Day.''
