7. Lifted or The Story is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground, Bright Eyes (Saddle Creek). Part II, in which Conor Oberst (who by the time of this album's release has been called the "new Dylan" more often than Springsteen, Waits, and Forbert combined) not only continues to scavenge his emotional wreckage for your listening "pleasure" but slings it against a canvas of full-on orchestral arrangements that'll make your heart bleed in the best way: cathartically and redemptively.
