This is a great album by a great band. This CD probably has the most rock and roll songs that Eels have ever put out, and a few great soft songs, as well.

"Souljacker" was co-produced (and features guitars) by John Parish, who is probably better known for his work with PJ Harvey. In the end, this CD feels a bit like the Eels accompaniment to Harvey's "To Bring You My Love," particularly on tracks like "Dog Faced Boy" and "Souljacker, Pt. 1." There are a lot of heavy guitars here, and that's probably part of why certain tracks from this album have become so prevalent on Eels' live setlist.

This has been one of my favorite CDs since I heard it when it was first released. It was a new direction for Eels that I wish they had followed longer. It feels like a series of hard rock short stories, which I can really get behind.
