Bright Eyes is goofy, just plain goofy. Just when you thought you could get past some of the more annoying vocal mannerisms of Jeff Mangum in Neutral Milk Hotel and enjoy it for the music, some joker like Conor comes along to throw his wreck into the dreck vocal arena.
Shame on me. From before, I forgot two big "townie" bands that bar owners love to play:
Namely, Grand Funk Railroad and Cheap Trick. Neither are the worst band in the world, but both are still skin crawl-inducing.
