it’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, mad, mad world…

Just listened to End Times by Eels.

As usual with his work, it’s a heartbreaking tale, that really pulls a variety of emotional responses. A depressing, yet beautifully written narrative, I thought this album really ended on a positive note with the track “On My Feet.” Two great albums from Mr. E in under a year. Should tie us over for a while, eh?

Here are two of my favourite tracks.

  1. f

    Grabbed this but couldn’t bring myself to listen yet, I need some upbeat music.. (cue Vampire Weekend or Spoon leak)

  2. Yeah, you need to be in the right mindset. Might just wanna listen to On My Feet then. ;)

    Seeing as VW and Spoon aren’t leaking…how about Costello vs. U2?

    I love Spectacle!

  3. It’s a beautiful album. Mr E is going to be spending a great deal of time in ye olde record player over the holidays, methinks.

  4. I think so too. I’ll be mixing up a playlist for my travels tonight, and he’ll be front and centre.
