EELS Released Pitch-Black ‘ELECTRO-SHOCK BLUES’ Album 20 Years Ago Today…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

21 September 2018

Artist: EELS


Released: 21 September 1998 – 20 years ago

ALL MUSIC review: “Eels’ second release, ‘Electro-Shock Blues’, is a much darker album
than their underrated debut, 1996’s ‘Beautiful Freak’, but just as rewarding. Singer/guitarist
and songwriter E experienced many upheavals in his personal life between making albums
(the passing of several family members and close friends), and decided to work his way
through life’s tribulations via his music… For some of the most introspective and haunting
tunes of recent times, look no further than the title track… One of the finest and fully realized records of 1998, a must-hear.” –
Score: 4.5/5 – Full review here.

TURN UP THE VOLUME! says: at times creepy and pitch-black but the engrossing songs’ quality and E’s fascinating vox give you the feeling that the sun is still out there at the end of te horizon.
