Eels - New Album - End Times

It may feel like it's only two minutes since I was last writing about a new album but this is in fact a new album. I'm always wary of bands releasing double albums or two albums really close together, no one has that much talent, surely? I think it's too early to say from just a few listens but I would say that there's certainly some quality in there. The problem is I keep listening out for the Mr E's Beautiful Blues but Eels are a lot more sombre than that nowadays. I guess it's a bit like when I started listening to Elbow, I kept expecting them to be Doves but they don't quite rock in the same way. I guess what I'm trying to say is that Eels are the American Elbow.

I thought I'd post A Line In The Dirt from the new album, it has the most interesting lyrics for me, sometime interesting in their simplicity, sometimes they just draw you in, make you think.
