There Is No Beginning to the Story is an EP by Bright Eyes. The songs on it are fairly varied, with "From a Balance Beam" and "Loose Leaves" having more electronic qualities, while "Messenger Bird's Song" and "We Are Free Men" are more rooted in acoustic. The 12" vinyl edition includes 2 extra songs: "Amy in the White Coat," a harrowing song about a father's sexual abuse of his daughter and "Out on the Weekend," a Neil Young cover. – Wiki 

“The opening "From a Balance Beam," and "Loose Leaves" pick up the pop pace, the latter aligning with the Strokes' style by distorting Oberst's chat-sing while crunchy keyboards bounce along. On "Messenger Bird's Song," his cinematic narrative is complimented by banjo. The imploring turns to collegiate rambles on "We Are Free Men," where his sneer of "Anything to entertain yourself" sounds like a reluctant Jarvis Cocker. Oberst has become somewhat of a heartland torch singer, and this EP hints at the busted glam of what's to come.” – Allmusic
