Appears On (Mixes): Dub Club: It's Raining Again - Matt

Song Notes: Speaking of sad, this is from the second eels album, Electro-Shock Blues, which E wrote to help him through the loss of his entire family (to cancer and suicide) as well as some of his friends. This is a song about seeing his mother getting cancer treatments which were torturous and ended up not working in her case anyway, and sort of dealing with that possibility. It, with Souljacker is my favorite eels record, and should be listened all the way through; it doesn't have a story arc, but there is a definite emotional arc to the record; the first part is grief and anger, although it goes through to acceptance and the realization that "Maybe it's time to live". A wonderful album. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
