Eels! That’s how the brief Superbowl advert that bandleader E put together goes, and it is also how we responded when we saw the crate-load of reissued Eels albums that Universal have sent through to us. Second album Electro-Shock Blues has never been released on vinyl before, and is spread over 2 LPs.

Many people who have not heard this record, but have read about it or heard about it would probably be turned off, dismissing it as "depressing," which is not true. E, himself, once said that "Electro Shock Blues" would probably be one of the most positive albums he would ever make. Many of the songs are meditations on death and dying, but the songs come across as uplifting in many ways, as a therapeutic response from E. The circumstances surrounding many of the songs on this album are truly tragic, but much in the way of great art has come from pain and suffering.
