    The result is a more diverse and often louder album than its predecessor, Tomorrow Morning. [Jan-Feb 2013, p.86]

    Everett turns the corner on this relatively rosy, but no less ambitious, record that plays like a soundtrack of his post-trilogy life.

    Lots of crunchy guitars and witty lyrics. More upbeat than other Eels albums. Great album which gets better with each play. Peach BlossomLots of crunchy guitars and witty lyrics. More upbeat than other Eels albums. Great album which gets better with each play. Peach Blossom is a great song for springtime when the cold is gone and the colors of nature have returned. Wonderful, Glorious is a great sing-along track to end the album with. Full Review »

The focus this time is out is less on melody and more on musicianship, but the songs still pack a punch both lyrically and emotionally. Most impressive, however, is the depth of the music which rewards repeated listens. An early contender for album of the year accolades. Full Review »

But just when you think the music became predictable, thereĀ“s a beautiful middle 8 or a great unusual sound, or a change on the dynamics that puts the whole thing in a very different perspective.
    The EELS, at the top of their game, deliver a wonderful glorious album indeed.
