Bright Eyes is essentially Conor Oberst, a young critically acclaimed songwriter from Nebraska who began releasing music at the age of 14 and issued two albums simultaneously in 2005. Wide Awake is the acoustic-based collection that best reflects his strengths as a singer and writer.  (The other release Digital Ash in a Digital Urn trends towards British goth-rock and electronica.) Fans admire Oberst's frail, intimate voice, which is reminiscent of a younger, less secure Paul Westerberg. His confessional lyrics can sometimes give the listener the uneasy feeling that they're eavesdropping more than listening to a finished album. Guest vocalist Emmylou Harris joins Oberst for several tracks here, the most effective being the politically charged "Landlocked Blues." Though it's Oberst's habit to surround himself with friends (his guest musician list is voluminous), he's best keeping it simple, as the touching ballad "The First Day of My Life" clearly illustrates.
