Song Notes: This year, eels put out a 2 CD set, Blinking Lights And Other Revelations, and it was surprisingly good—usually 2 disc sets like that are a bit on the bloated side and could be trimmed. There's very little that could be trimmed from this album, including the instrumental link tracks. The press notes for the record mentioned that vocal eels fan Tom Waits guested on a track—this is that track… and all he does is growl a couple times. Folks might feel burned, except that a) that's pretty hilarious and b) it's also a really awesome, rockin' song. In February, there's going to be a live CD/DVD of the recent eels with Strings tour—I saw that at the Moore when it came to town, and it was great, but then, I love E and his banter and songs. It was, understandably, a really mellow night, but they completely tore the roof off when they went into "Dog Faced Boy" for the encore. -Rev. Syung Myung Me
