5 Beautiful End Times...londoncalling | 19/01/2010 | See all londoncalling's reviews (42)Top 100 Reviewer Top 10 Music Reviewer With End Times E has got the familiar Eels safety net out and lands in it perfectly. After a slightly different turn with Hombre Lobo, this record is back to the Eels we know and love. Although It covers little new ground, it does continue in all that Eels do so wonderfully well.Again he plays on his heartache that's been his life's story and draws on some of his past and most recent emotional experiences and pours it out through his music. Whether it's romantic breakups, losing family to cancer and suicide, his music is once again laid bare for us all to wallow in.Simplicity is beautiful, and in End Times we are given another reason to celebrate E and his songs. Take any tracks from this album and you will see what an accomplished singer/songwriter/musician he really is. It's difficult to pick any standouts, but The Beginning; Gone Man; Mansions Of Los Feliz and Little Bird are all worth a special mention.I find it hard to say anything other than what a beautiful record this is. But what else can you expect?
