Eels: Blinking Lights, 28 April 2005
This album has definitely been worth the wait. I loved Souljacker but found Shootenanny to be a bit of a let-down. When I heard that Tom Waits was contributing to Blinking Lights, it was like all my birthdays and christmasses had come at once.
It may not be to everyone's taste though and I would recommend that you begin with one of the earlier albums such as Daisies. Eels make quite a unique sound and some find their style to be inpenetrable.
However, to those who persevere, I can say that this is one of the best balanced and sublimely beautiful musical works I have heard in a long time.
