Bright Eyes: Cassadaga
Buy! - (Saddle Creek)
The latest album from Conor Oberst & co. finds his songwriting coming into full bloom, mostly trimming his youthful excesses for some beautifully crafted songs about love, war and addiction. The album also gets the best production of his career thanks to longtime collaborator Mike Mogis, with the sound ranging from swirling orchestral folk-pop to rootsy country-rock. A host of special guests contribute ranging from John McEntire (Tortoise) and Janet Weiss (ex-Sleater-Kinney) to M. Ward and Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, but it’s Oberst’s songs that shine the brightest on his best album yet. 4/6/2007 - Don Yates
