Inherent in youth is a kinetic energy, vitality and passion that has the potential to move masses. Every new generation picks a voice that will offer them something to identify with - something to prove to them that the crazy things they're feeling, and the anger that they're having, and the disillusionment that's plaguing them is normal. Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst is that voice. Oberst's incredible ability to tell stories with his songs and paint intricate pictures with his words is reminiscent, without being derivative, of mid-period Dylan. And his gift for composing and delivering those songs is pure poetry. As the mastermind behind the acclaimed Bright Eyes collective, Oberst's genius is found in a pretense-free, orchestral approach to songwriting. The career-spanning Bright Eyes box set The Studio Albums 2000-2011 features six albums on ten LPs, all mastered by legendary engineer Bob Ludwig (Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Paul McCartney, Nirvana) at Gateway Mastering and pressed at RTI. It includes remastered versions of Fevers and Mirrors (2000), Lifted or The Story Is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground (2002), I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning (2005), Digital Ash in a Digital Urn (2005), and Cassadaga (2007). The box set will also include The People's Key (2011) which was originally mastered by Ludwig. The foil stamped linen wrapped box comes complete with twelve 8 x 10 photo prints by Butch Hogan and an essay by Nathaniel Krenkel.
