Play.com ReviewHighly regarded as one of the finest, most intricate songwriters of recent years, Mark Oliver Everett returns under the guise of Eels with End Times - another sublime collection of personal, understated masterpieces. In a similar vein to previous works, including the massively successful 'Beautiful Freak' and the epic 'Blinking Lights And Other Revelations', the latest offering from the Californian songsmith and his unique gathering of musicians focuses largely on the theme of broken love. Although recorded on a four-track recorder, End Times is far from sparse, with a mass of layered guitars, Hammond organ and a fine horn arrangement all backing the delicate, heartfelt material. Among the highlights, 'Unhinged' is a welcomingly unpredictable pop song, aided by the intelligent drumming of returning sticksmith Jonathan 'Butch' Norton, whilst the simple 'Paradise Blues' is the ideal showcase for Everett's gruff, distinctive vocal. Although continually raising concerns about relationships, commitment and the future, End Times is littered with jaw-dropping moments of musical invention, the result is arguably the most accessible Eels album to date.

Song writing of the highest quality

After being so impressed with Blinking Lights , I decided to go through the rest of E's albums. I didn't think any of his other material would come close to BL. This is not as good . The only reason is that End Times has one cd, BL has 2 cds!! This is an excellent collection of songs. Beautiful. I purchased 2 copies of it by mistake. What a great mistake to make.!!

... with another beautiful arranged and performed album, introspective and reflective, soft and a little melancholical. but with the typical characteristics of an eels-album: beautiful lyrics and music, happy tones while the content is about loss, pain, ...
again: originally layered music that deserves listening to over and over again to discover all that's offered.
a beautiful present

The Best Reviewed Album of 2010

FACT, and for good reason. This is beautiful. It will, in my opinion, sit with the best brake up albums ever, such as Dylans 'Blood on the Tracks'. It's far from a depressing album though. More uplifting. The kind of album that puts a smile on your face.. I would tell everyone to buy this album.
