The second cd of Eels is even more a solo project of professional pessimist E then the debut Beautiful Freak from 1996. On that plate you still had the idea to listen to a tape, but on Electro-shock Blues he does, partly because of the departure of bassist Tommy, as good as everything ourselves. However, he is helped by his regular drummer Butch and a number of guest musicians like Grant Lee Philips (of Grant Lee Buffalo) and other less acquaintances for violin, cello and clarinet parties. In his interview with Oene Kummer (ear 19, 1998) says E: ' this is typically a cd that people don't go for their fun spin. And indeed, E makes a particularly gloomy impression. Cause: the death of his sister, a friend, his landlord and the incurable illness of his mother. Yet there between songs with titles such as Going To Your Funeral, Cancer For The Cure and Hospital Food again enough gems where you in spite of everything, very happy.
