    A very down to earth effort from Eels. The 90's alt rock band that once sounded, well, like a BAND, now sounds like one man (who is Mark Oliver Everett) in a studio spilling his guts out onto tape (which it is).

    A very heartfelt, personal record. Eels is a project that will never have the same commercial success as it did in the 90s, but the CRITICAL success should still be standing. Its a shame to see it isnt because End Times is a pretty damn good CD.

    This may not be Elels' best record, but it's damn close to it, and a uniquely idiosyncratic deposit in an increasingly diverse discography that's getting harder and harder to ignore. [Holiday 2009, p.76]
  2. End Times may be a tunnel with no light at the end of it, but the bleakness is beautiful.
  3. Through a dozen terse, exposed songs Mr. Everett proceeds from bittersweet memory to guilt to resentment to a kind of acceptance. Even the glimpses of self-pity stay matter of fact.
