Product Description

One of a pair of new Bright Eyes singles being released, "Take it Easy (Love Nothing)" offers a sneak preview of Digital Ash in a Digital Urn, one of two full-length albums set to hit stores in January 2005. Why two? They are two decidedly different singles, previewing two decidedly different albums. Digital Ash in a Digital Urn features the more eclectic and pop-based sounds Bright Eyes has only alluded to in the past. Think of what happens when a New York inspired guy heads back to Nebraska and pushes the recording studio to its limit."Take it Easy (Love Nothing)" features one song from Digital Ash in a Digital Urn and two tracks exclusive to the single. Exclusive tracks include a cover of Simon Joyner's "Burn Rubber" and the instrumental "Cremation."

4.0 out of 5 stars Bright Eye's Goes Digital by Kevchino.com Jan. 23 2005
By Kevchino.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Not one but of a pair of new Bright Eyes singles have been released. Each representing some tracks off the two distinctively different albums coming out. "Take it Easy (Love Nothing)" offers a preview from the forthcoming album "Digital Ash in a Digital Urn," which will showcase Conor's more electronica and pop influences. The other album "I'm Wide Awake It's Morning" will be based more in Oberst's folk sounds. The two full-length albums should hit stores the beginning of the New Year.

The playful single "Take it Easy" uses eighties keyboards and upbeat guitar jangles along with backwards drums which sound as if Jimmy Tamberello (Dntel/Postal Service) programmed them. The effervescent song has a pre-written application to be on a modern day Pretty in Pink soundtrack. The single exclusive track "Burn Rubber," a southern bumpkin song filled with blazing banjos, is a cover of Secretly Canadian's Simon Joyner. The closing instrumental exclusive track "Cremation" is beautiful and easy to fall in love with and evokes almost a hypnotic Boards of Canada sound only done with real instruments.

Conor Oberst's song writing is brilliant especially when he breaks into more pop and electronic materials, like "Take it Easy," and "Cremation." I hope "Digital Ash in a Digital Urn" continues in this vain and should prove to be a great album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great single! Jan. 4 2005
By Evan T. Agar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a great single that stays true to Conor Oberst's lyrical style but offers a little change in the sound of his music. While this change is not drastic it is noticible.

There are 3 songs on this cd but there is only one that i can really get into, Take it Easy Love is nothing. But in my opinion it is one of the best songs ever written by Conor. This is a great single but it might be worth waiting for the cd in January rather than buy the single unless you are a avid Bright Eyes fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, not great Jan. 15 2008
By Brent Patro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Not so great from the aspect that it only has three songs on it, but the two that are not on Digital Ash are awesome. Track 2 is solid, but for me track three stands out. Oberst and his boys rarely put together an instrumental that isnt merely a sound-collage. If you can get it for cheap, buy it for sure. Otherwise just download a digital copy.

As always, great music from Bright Eyes. Nice to have the actual CD as a part of my collection, since I have loved the songs for so long.
