Anyone else here listen to the Eels? If you've never heard of them you really should check them out. They're a rocking alternative-ish band fronted by one of the best songwriters out there today, E. I just picked up their new album Souljacker yesterday, and it sounds pretty good so far, but I don't know if I'm going to like it as much as some of their older stuff. I'm going to see them for the first time later in the month too. I'm psyched as hell. Any other Eels fans out there? And if there are, do you have any thoughts on the new album compared to their other three?

I am an Eels fan (never use "the" in front of the band name -- hee hee), but I've not heard the new album. I do, however, think "The Medication is wearing off" is one of the most brilliant follow-up songs of all time.

Yeah, I usually correct people when they put "the" in front of their name. I musta slipped when writing, though! Definitely check out the new album. I've listened to it a few more times now, and it's gets better with each listening. Souljacker pt. 1 is my favorite so far.

The Eels are pretty good. I won't go as far to say I'm a fan, but I don't dis like 'em. Some pretty catchy stuff.

I thought they not only eschewed "the", but also the capital E in eels as well...

I used to listen to them but I'm depressed enough as it is and listening to their songs usually just makes the depression grow.

Their newest album, Souljacker, and the last one, Daisies of the Galaxy, aren't that depressing actually. The only one that really freaks me out is Electro Shock Blues. But I guess losing a sister to suicide and your mom to cancer will do that. That may be the most depressing album I've ever been a big fan of. It's also my favorite of theirs, though. It's just done soooo damn well throughout.

p.s. Love the Hum background behind your posts, ironclad. I didn't catch it at first. It looked so damn familiar then I looked over at the Hum poster on my wall for Downward is Heavenward, and it hit me.

What, the name didn't give you a clue? (HINT: Check the tracklist on Electra 2000)

Yeah, I totally kicked myself after your name dawned on me. I'm bad with song names a lot of the time. I usually just know stuff by the track number. Iron Clad Lou is like the first or second track on Electra, isn't it? I know my favorite of the album is track two. Damn, that song rocks hard as hell.

Yeah, Iron Clad Lou is the first track (Also one of the few songs I can play on the guitar). You're thinking of Pinch and Roll, the infamous "I can't believe I'm a dirty old man who pisses on himself" song. Man, that whole album rocks my fuckin' socks off. Shame they broke up. downward is heavenward is one of the best albums I've ever heard.

That's what he's saying in Pinch and Roll?!? I never knew that. He's singing so fast at that part I could never decipher it. I just always got into 'cause it's a great breakup song with the 'f-you' line in there and all.

Best of their albums overall has to be You'd Prefer an Astronaut," though.

I had heard they broke up, but never heard a reason for it. You have nay idea?
