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

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

    Lots 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 latest effort from Mark Oliver Everett and his alt-rock collective lives up to its title. 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 »

    The album (and the lyrics) feels pretty straightforward, with a vibe of "in the moment" thing. 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.
