Bright Eyes- I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning Vinyl Record 180g

I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning is one of two Bright Eyes albums (along with Digital Ash in a Digital Urn) released on January 25, 2005. This was the first Bright Eyes album to feature Nate Walcott, who is now a permanent member of the band.

Like the two Bright Eyes albums before it, I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning opens with a spoken recording, this time by Conor Oberst himself. The monologue is a short storyabout two strangers on an airplane that is about to fall into the ocean. Nearing the crash, one of the passengers begins to sing, "At the Bottom of Everything," the opening song of the album. The simple, four-chord folk song is one of Oberst's trademark sarcastic social commentaries on American ideals: "We must memorize nine numbersand deny we have a soul. And in this endless race for property and privilege to be won, we must run..."
