TK # 45 - Bright Eyes - I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning (2005)

Of all the Noughties New Dylans, none were more divisive among rock fans than Conor Oberst. The haters found him cloying and overwrought, his champions saw the voice of a generation. On I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning, he fulfills his promise with a toned down, subtle, beating not bleeding heart, confessional alt-country classic. It’s the soundtrack to a million disaffected teenage lives.
