Bright Eyes Burns A Bright Light For Christmas

11 years after it was initially released Conor Oberst’s (known artistically as Bright Eyes) ‘A Christmas Album’ has reappeared on his label Saddle Creek. This time it has been given the full vinyl treatment (snowy white vinyl at that) so there is no excuse for you not to lap up Oberst's quiet introspective versions of ‘Away In A Manger’, ‘Blue Christmas’ and ‘The First Noel’. The album takes the pace of a slow march but there are slight jumps in momentum especially on the near canter of ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’. With 11 covers this may not be the most eye catching Christmas album releassed in 2013 but it could yet be the most cherishable.
