A swirling, euphonious record, at times bursting with bombastic confidence and country swagger, and at others loose-limbed and mesmeric. If "I'm Wide Awake..." was the "New York City album", then "Cassadaga" is "the America album", in which Conor Oberst chronicles his travels around the country and articulates his sense of history in the landscape. Oberst's impassioned prose is still recognizable in every track, but the songs are rich with elaborate production, cinema-sized orchestration, and at times, sprawling, almost psychedelic atmospherics. This is the double vinyl edition.

US only 12-inch release! This single includes five exclusive b-sides. Retaining the simmering glow of its predecessors, ("Digital Ash In A Digital Urn" and "I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning"), "Four Winds" is full of the magic that brought Bright Eyes to international attention. Carefully played, deftly poetic, and quietly enchanting, it has a wandering country charm and all of the storytelling seductiveness of earlier work. Look for the new full-length, "Cassadaga" on April 10th.
