If you have to have one album by Bright Eyes, it should be "I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning" for multiple reasons.  The trembling despair you can hear in his voice, the beautiful instrumentals that coerce you deeper and deeper into one of the greatest things you will ever hear in your life.  Conor Oberst is a genius, and I don't think anyone can debate otherwise.  I get rid of music and bring new music onto my laptop all the time, but "I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning" and "Lifted or The Story Is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground " will always have a place in my music folder.  Seriously, this is a must have album even if you don't "get" Bright Eyes.
