In 2000, Fevers and Mirrors put Conor Oberst at the center of concentric, radioactive areas anticipating their impending “moment”: oversharing culture, emo, Omaha, Saddle Creek, Bright Eyes. It’s here where the weight of being essentially synonymous with Bright Eyes starts to dawn on Oberst, and fortunately for the listener, there was no separation between where he was an artist and as a person. Yes, it’s a record about breaking up (that is, if your affections are requited in the first place), unfulfilled dreams, real nightmares, the burden of talent, and the encroaching dread of a future where nothing substantial ever changes within you. All of the things that get judged as #whitepeopleproblems by other white people who apparently had their shit together before they could legally drink. Play Fevers and Mirrors for someone who served in a war or underwent a serious medical procedure, and they’d probably tell Oberst to snap out of it. Indeed, you learn later in your years that, as Morrissey put it, “there are worse things in life than never being someone’s sweetie,” but in the thrall of Fevers, sometimes these are the kind of things that do feel like the end of the world for at least an hour. — Pitchfork
