Being a Bright Eyes fan, I hardly feel bad putting down Oberst's not-so-amazing work. This CD, frankly, is hardly worth it, that is if you are an owner of the Bright Eyes and Son, Ambulance split "Oh Holy Fools" (which by the way, is better than this).
The four songs from "Oh Holy Fools" are very good ones, by far the best on this CD. "I Won't Ever Be Happy Again", one of the two other songs, is worth a listen, a decent tune, nothing amazing. The final track, entitled "Mirrors And Fevers" is more of a poem than a song; it features Oberst slurring his usual emo lyrics over what sounds like muffled voices at a restaurant. I hardly consider it music.
Here's some advice: get Oh Holy Fools before you get this, because you will definitely like it more. Son,Ambulance, another Saddle Creek band, provides some good songs on that album as well as Bright Eyes.
