Two great songs, two stars
on 4 January 2015
Here Eels try to renovate their music by introducing hints of electronica and shifting their melodic approch. I really appreciate it as I found Hombre Lobo and End Times quite boring, full of Eels-by-numbers. The outcome, though, is not completely satisfactory due to the lack of good tunes. Two songs are indeed great and stand the comparison to Eels' best: "Oh so lovely" and "Mistery of life". The rest is frankly neglectable. Probably this album would excite me if it were my introduction to Eels, but I'm an early fan. So...
two fantastic songs, two stars.
