Published December 08, 2005.EelsBlinking Lights and Other Revelations(Vagrant)Recent deaths in the family of Mark Oliver Everett, or E, have shaded his music before, but never so deeply. Worry about his mental state, only to be rescued as he uses rage to intensify elation at being alive. The disc nimbly dodges being depressing or corny through a steady application of gorgeous melodies.Doug Taylorcategories: Best of the year (2005)
