    Personally I'd say he's one of the living few who are close to Morrissey lyrically.

    I like his stuff a lot, though I used to make fun of him... Desaparecidos was the band that turned me onto Bright Eyes, though.
    I was really glad to see they reformed, even though I think some of the lyrics on their new EP's are pretty heavy-handed.

    Anyway, in spite of how much I used to make fun of him, I made up for all the mocking jeers with wimpy adolescent tears.

    The early stuff is particularly good, but I also really enjoy "Digital Ash". It's been a long, long time since I listened to much BE/Desa stuff, and I never really got into Commander Venus, but I'll never forget how much the music affected me as a young teenager going through his first really serious existential crisis. :blushing:


    I've cried A LOT to this song. :lbf:

    Haven't heard it in a long time... I'm actually pretty sad it's not hitting me like it used to, not that it diminished my appreciation of it.
