Eureka finds Jim O'Rourke blending many styles together, something that is important to know. There's jangle pop, folk, relaxing jazz, and an assortment of other more vague influences and whatnot. Thanks such diversity, Eureka rarely tires itself, getting all the rabbit action can handle. At just the right time, Eureka decides to start wrapping things up with the title track, an almost mournful and melancholic way to end the album, with that wonderful, gentle voice and crawling tempo. Geniunely sad, he sings "Youre thinking on your feet, While youre sitting there on your ass, Fresh crease in your shirts, No stain of sweat on your back, Theres no need, Theres an employee, To make up for all of your slack A seed dont make a tree, Without a servant who waters the grass.

It is named after the 1984 Nicolas Roeg film of the same name. It is one of three albums recorded by O'Rourke that are named after Roeg films. Women of the World" is an Ivor Cutler song and "Something Big" is by Burt Bacharach. Prelude To 110 Or 220", "Movie On The Way Down" and "Through The Night Softly" are named after Chris Burden performance pieces.

A excellent staple in the art/chamber pop catalogue. BEST TRACKS: Ghost Ship in a Storm, Something Big, Eureka, Prelude to 110 or 220/Women of the World. 70. I'm little disappointed. Ghost Ship is such a beautiful and touching track, it's one of the best songs I've ever heard so far that I was ready to call this album a masterpiece.

Jim O'Rourke has undergone a radical transformation since leaving Chicago's rock-improv ensemble Gastr Del Sol. While previously enjoying the singular role of avant-garde guitar hero, O'Rourke has slowly blossomed into a skillful producer with an extremely refined artistic sense. On Eureka he embraces an orchestral pop motif replete with horns, strings, and even female background vocalists. This Jim O'Rourke album is quiet brilliance. Peaceful, easy to listen to, and arty without being stupid.
