Eels – Blinking Lights and Other Revelations (2005)

July 3, 2009

This is, quite simply, a monster of an album; ninety-three minutes of the heartfelt alt rock that we’ve all come to expect from this band. Despite the length, this is one of the most coherent albums Eels have ever recorded (second only to Electro-Shock Blues, although that could just be because of my personal feelings for that album). According to Mr. E, this album is “[about] God and all the questions related to the subject of God. It’s also about hanging on to my remaining shreds of sanity and the blue sky that comes the day after a terrible storm, and it’s a love letter to life itself, in all its beautiful, horrible glory.” You owe it to yourself to hear this.
