Intense Album with a great Bonus Album,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett (Audio CD)
A stripped down Mark Everett sometimes just with a keyboard to supplement his vocals, and other times strings or a chamber orchestra. This is probably the most intense personal album that he has released, and I consider it simply beautiful!
The second bonus CD contains 6 studio tracks, all of which are far too good to be on a limited release, especially the amazing Lonesome Lockdown Hurricane. The 6 live tracks contain a great reworking of Fresh Feeling, with the final one being Peter Green's Oh Well. This last track is the only real rocking track on the two discs and follows the original quite closely, but the big surprise (for me) is how this track sits so well along side E's own compositions.
Packaging is similar to the last 3 two disc editions being a fold-out digipak with a booklet (containing the lyrics to the main album).
In summary I would say that this is Eels best album for a while, but please do invest in the double disc edition.
