3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK, but slightly deflated, 27 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett (Audio CD)
I was expecting a bit more from this latest release after (in my eyes) the disappointing last album. It's better then Wonderful Glorious, but it's not up to the standard of my 3 favourite Eels albums (Electro Shock Blues, Daisies of the Galaxy and Blinking Lights). Must admit, I've struggled to like a whole album of Eels material since Blinking Lights - like about two-thirds of Hombre Lobo and End Times, like about half of Tomorrow Morning (after dismissing for 12 months but revisiting) but only like 3 or 4 songs from Wonderful Glorious. Some of the songs on this new album seems a bit over-familiar and forced, but it's not a total write-off. Best songs are Lockdown Hurricane and Mistakes of my Youth. Also quite like the trilogy Where I'm At, Where I'm From and Where I'm Going. Here's hoping it will continue to grow on me (listened to it about 5 times now). Mark out of ten, 7/10. Still looking forward to seeing them live in Oxford in June.
