Released toward the end of 2006, a year that was unusually quiet for the unusually prolific Conor Oberst, Noise Floor (Rarities 1998-2005) gathers up 16 odds and ends Bright Eyes has released in the past seven years. Those seven years saw Oberst rise from indie wunderkind to indie superstar, but Noise Floor doesn't trace that rise, nor does it offer a complete chronicle of rarities from that time. It's a collection of stray songs -- things released as singles or B-sides, things that have never appeared before -- and it feels that way, lacking the overall thematic purpose of either of his 2005 albums, I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning or Digital Ash in a Digital Urn.
