Bright Eyes – Fevers and Mirrors

      Fevers and Mirrors is the third album by the Nebraska indie band Bright Eyes, recorded in 1999 and released on May 29, 2000. It was the 32nd release of the Omaha, Nebraska-based record label Saddle Creek Records. The album was released later in 2000 in the United Kingdom as the inaugural release from Wichita Recordings. The music online magazine Pitchfork Media placed Fevers and Mirrors at number 170 on their list of top 200 albums of the 2000s[6] despite a low initial score of 5.4/10. In 2012, Pitchfork Media’s Ian Cohen gave the reissued version of the album a 9.0 out of 10.

     Mike DaRonco: ‘Nebraska’s Bright Eyes are graduates from the Midwestern school of Brit-pop. With Fevers and Mirrors being their third full-length release, a strong adaptation of Radiohead, Blur, and Suede is conveniently wrapped up in a neat lo-fi package. But without completely ripping anyone off, Bright Eyes feature their own cadence of loose indie and shaky, emotional vocals. The results amount to a catchy collection of elaborate pop that’s been perfectly captured on a nickel budget.’
