This review is from: Electro-Shock Blues (Audio CD)
It was certainly a difficuilt task to follow Beautiful freak, but again the eels don't fail to disappiont. The album maintains the high level of consistancy, which we have come to expect from the eels.
Although some of the other reviews describe it as boring, and depressing. Certainly the single "Last stop: this town" paints a false image of what the album is like, and people buying the album expecting more catchy classics like "novicane for the soul" and "Susans House", will probably be dissapointed. But no hardened eels fan can be unhappy with Electro-shock Blues, it provides simplistic, atmopheric songs, which reflect on a very difficuilt period in E's life. However I feel the real power behind this album lies in the carfully crafted lyrics, these gives the album in my view a subtley uplifting quality, enhancing the album a sense of potensy. All together an awesome album, and one i would recommend to anyone, ( with a taste in quality music).
