Biography

Dr. Hugh Everett III, Ph.D., was what Scientific American magazine calls "one of the most important scientists of the 20th century." A quantum physicist who authored The Many Worlds Theory, Everett inspired countless science fiction books, movies and Star Trek episodes with the concept of parallel universes. As a young teenager he exchanged letters with Albert Einstein, debating ... Read more in Amazon's Eels Store

Editorial Reviews

2010 release, the eighth studio album from the Alt-Rock band led by Mark Oliver Everett (AKA E). End Times is the sound of an artist growing older in uncertain times. An artist who has lost his great love while struggling with his faith in an increasingly hostile world teetering on self-destruction. Largely self-recorded on an old four track tape machine by E in his Los Angeles basement, it's a 'divorce album' with a modern twist: the artist equates his personal loss with the world he lives in losing its integrity. V2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honest, Elegiac, and Deeply Personal January 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was a late arrival to the Mark Everett fan club. My bad luck. Once in a while, you find an artist who speaks to you. Who seems to be like you in ways that are uncanny. When it comes to Everett, I can't help but think it's his ability to write from a very genuine place -- to strum the strings of our common humanity in an original way. End Times is no exception. Some of the songs take a little time to get your ears and head around, but the deep pleasures are well worth the effort. At under three minutes long, Little Bird is a profound elegy to lost love, with a striking, repeated line that's beautiful in its simplicity and delivery: "God damn. I miss that girl." I Need a Mother oozes late night, brutal honesty -- told like that last truth that finally emerges, but only after a tortuous relationship has left you a husk. Those are just two of the gems. End Times reminds me of two other things I love: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Beck's Sea Change. They're each different creatures, but they roam the same dark countryside where it's hard to tell whether you're seeing the slender threads of dawn or the final glimmer of dusk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant January 22, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Sometimes EELS are up, sometimes they are down. Life has ups and downs. We have all felt like this at some point. An artist's duty is to reflect life. There's a reason this album is getting incredible reviews. It's great! My favorite EELS album since Electro Shock Blues.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Million Trees January 25, 2010
Format:Audio CD
"Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands, literally thousands of songs about heartbreak, rejection, pain, misery and loss." (Nick Hornby - High Fidelity).

Mark Everett wasn't the most cheerful guy to begin with. Deaths of parents and siblings leave a mark and his music with the eels has always had a sad undertone. And don't expect anything new on `End Times'. Let's face it, even the title is depressing. The theme of the album is a divorce and the ensuing depression. Recorded mostly at home on a simple four-track the songs are simple and vintage E. Mostly just him strumming some chords on a guitar or playing them on a keyboard.
Starting in heaven he slowly spirals down into the phases that are part of breaking up, including locking yourself up in your house without much outside interaction ( the beautiful Mansion of Loz Feliz). They are emotions that we have all gone through, at one point he explains seeing a million trees at the side of the road and feeling just like one of them, but still feeling lonely. At least he has his Little Bird to talk to and we have the eels we can listen to, to let us know that even though we feel awful at times, there are millions more that feel the same. (from [...])

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best Records of 2010 January 24, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't understand why some people don't like this record, personally, it blew me away. Maybe people are so commercialized, they don't know great music whan they hear it. I think it's one of the most immpressive records I've heard in a while, and I own 600+ of them. What blew me away the most is the songwriting, it's very much what great songwriting is about. I love the lo-fi minimalism, and E has pulled it off brilliantly here. So, if you don't like it, oh well, if you do, it's a must-have record.

4.0 out of 5 stars E is one of this generations greatest songwriters! January 25, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Eels have decided to more than make up for their 4 year hiatus after "Blinking Lights" by gracing us with not just one, but two albums in 7 months. For other artists this would breed disaster (Ryan Adams, Joseph Arthur) but for eels it's just more great music.

I admit, it is his most depressing album since Electro Shock Blues but that's also what makes it great. It is dark and full of dispair...but there is also hope to be heard throughout. "Mansions of Los Feliz" is one of the best eels songs I've heard in a really long time. It reminds me of the best stuff from "Daisies of the Galaxy." Most of the songs are pretty short, with the longest song being the last song at 6:25, which is actually pretty long for an eels song.
I will also admit that he treads on familiar ground here. Some of the piano songs sound very similar to stuff he's written before, most notably is how much "A Line in the Dirt" sounds like "Manchester Girl." His other piano song, "I Need a Mohter" is the only song I wished he'd left off the album. These two songs prevent the album from getting more than 4 stars.

If you like eels' softer acoustic stuff, you'll like this album...if you like their more fuzzy rock sounding stuff, well that's on here too. In fact, my second favorite song on here is "Paradise Blues" which has a kind of Jim Noir sound to it.

I think it's interesting that when "Hombre Lobo" came out E was saying in interviews that he wanted to make an album that wasn't about him; an album removed from his personal issues; an album that wasn't autobiographical...I think these last two albums have been his most intimate albums since Electro Shock Blues. As with most works of fiction (Hombre Lobo) they tend to tell us more about the author than the characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful... January 20, 2010
Format:Audio CD
If you're a fan of the EELS then you'll need no convincing to get this album. E continues to blow us away with beautiful and personal melodies, this album resonating with melancholy and difficult reflection of his relationship with his ex-wife whom he just divorced. Just listen to the simple song "Little Bird" if you want your heart broken.

The songs are raw and real, similar to their previous masterwork "Electro-Shock Blues". Not all songs are slow and sad -- but there's a definitive theme throughout. Beautiful and highly recommended!
