  EELS: 'BLINKING LIGHTS AND OTHER REVELATIONS'
(Vargant/Aquarius; 2005.)
Mark Oliver Everett zvan E je mizantrop. Na šestom albumu Eels ta je činjenica više nego očigledna. Premda se proteže na dva diska, ovo nije nikakav megalomanski projekt ekstrovertiranog grandomana, već djelo osamljenika koji je uz pomoć par prijatelja snimio jedan mali intimni album koji više govori o njemu samom nego o svijetu u kojem je nastao. To što pritom E nije izbacio par pjesama i sveo ovaj album na jedan disk još više govori u prilog tome da ga nije briga što drugi misle. I tu nastaje problem jer ovdje ima nekoliko pjesama koje su na razini remek djela 'Elektro Shock Blues' iz 1998., ali ih je zakopao u prigušenoj produkciji kakva je obilježila njegov nasljednik 'Daisies Of Galaxy'.

Pjesme nemaju neki posebni intenzitet a većinom dominiraju orgulje i akustična gitara, a unatoč takvoj, prividnoj neambicioznosti E je isporučio par bisera koji potvrđuju uvodnu tvrdnju pa stoga evo nekoliko njegovih mudrih misli:
"People talking sound like dogs/Barking through the trees/Making no sense at all/Meaning nothing to me"
'Mother Mary'

"Do you know what it's like to care too much/'bout someone that you're never gonna get to touch"
' Hey Man Now You`re Really Living'

"And soon they'll wake up/To the stink of life passing them by/Wake up and smell the stink of their lives/The garbage trucks are coming/To take your shit to the dump/You're smelling pretty now/Such a pretty little lump/A pretty little lump of flesh/Who's lost your way"
'The Other Shoe'

"I don't leave the house much/I don't like being around people/Makes me nervous and weird/I don't like going to shows either/It's better for me to stay home/Some might think it means I hate people/But that's not quite right"
'Things Granchildren Should Know'

"There's nothing that I wanna do/More than get alone and be with you/Trouble with dreams is they don't come true/And when they do they can't catch up to you"
'Trouble With Dreams'
