5.0 out of 5 stars Bloody Beautiful, 19 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: End Times (Audio CD)
When I first heard the Eels, I thought, this guy is something else. The lyrics, playful at times and at others they're unbelievably poignant and emotional. The sound of his voice, changing between a harsh growl to a soft sweet tone. The music so beautifully crafted. This album is no exception.

The whole album blew me away. It has so many good songs. I have played it quite a number of times and I still have not become tired of it.
From `The Beginning' to `On my feet' with songs like `Nowadays' with its tremendous lyrics and soft build up. `Unhinged' with its great guitar strumming/riff. And `mansions of los feliz' with it's a catchy tone. I find it hard to fault this album.

The jewel of the album has to be the sombre song `A line in the dirt'. It has lyrics which stir emotions. It builds so gently that you barley notice it. The pianos piercing sound. The guitar and the banjo crossing each other's path. The drums adding oomph. The brass comes in to complete what has to be one of his best songs to date.

It's a melancholy feeling album, but I don't really see what's wrong with that. Some of his best lyrics come from self-pity.

In all its just bloody beautiful. I'm really glad he made it.
