Re: bright eyes...

Re: bright eyes...

I like some bright eyes songs. they are nice.

Im eating out of date stale hot cross buns. Yummy!

Re: bright eyes...

Lifted is just one record... I think Fevers and Mirrors is better, but that's just my opinion

Re: bright eyes...

I only have Lifted and Fevers/Mirrors - both have some absolutely amazing songs, but unfortunately a lot of songs/bits which I hate.

I've never heard Dashboard Confessional, I always presumed it/he would sound like a strummy acoustic version of pop-punk.

Re: bright eyes...

Fevers/Mirrors.

thats what i have. i agree with jop. some songs are great and some are shit. i haven't listened to it in about 3 years or something but i downloaded a few songs the other day and they are still class.

Re: bright eyes...

i have the vinyl box set. but seriously i like what conner does regardless of the stupid hype that has surrounded his music.

I'm glad I haven't witnessed any of the hype I hear about, I'm easily put off bands for silly reasons...

Cynical!

Conor!

Anyway. Bright Eyes is ace.

Holy f*cking Ghost.

Re: bright eyes...

fevers and mirrors is a really good album, and the every day and every night EP is great. i like the split with son, ambulance as well.

Re: bright eyes...

when i was in australia i found 3 copies of some split 7" he did with some obscure ozzie band. it is extraordinarily rare and i gave 1 copy to alex, one to nadia and i kept the other and got it ruined on the aeroplane in the overhead luggage compartment by a broken bottle of baileys.

its like the get up kids slow stuff but more sideburns and DC seems to have the same lyrics in everysingle song

Re: bright eyes...

He has some absolutely amazing songs but sometimes he just pisses me off. I absolutely hate both of the first songs on lifted and fevers and mirrors. his use of imagery is second to none though. like a storybook.

"Before I give my own review of this book I just want to say that I am a huge harry potter fan, to the extent that I actually have a deathly hallows tattoo on my bottom. I'm also quite ill right now, but I fought against my horrid cold to read this book. "
