3.0 out of 5 stars Past his best?
Most artists have a golden period after which they start to decline; some make one or two fantastic albums, some go on for longer: but eventually the muse begins to fade. The Beatles split very early, Amy Winehouse died after 2 wonderful albums: and yes Mark Everett's body of work stands comparison with the very greatest artists who have appeared since the sixties...

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Listen, 22 Mar 2013

This review is from: Tomorrow Morning (Audio CD)
I really enjoyed listening to this album. It's certainly not their best but it has a really positive feel to it; it's really easy to listen to and zips by confidently.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eels Trilogy Ends On An Optimistic, Happy Note, 23 Aug 2010
This review is from: Tomorrow Morning (Audio CD)
Mark Everett (Eels) has been prolific with the trilogy of 'Hombre Lobo', 'End Times' and now finally 'Tomorrow Morning' being released in not much over a year. Everett has once again brought us a classic, fairly low-fi album, full of great songs and melodies, finally finishing this trilogy of albums in an optimistic fashion. The album starts off really well with a beautiful instrumental 'In Gratitude For This Magnificent Day' followed by 'I'm A Hummingbird' resplendent with strings and beautiful but simple lyrics 'I'm a Hummingbird, floating like a tree, I'm a Hummingbird, beautiful and free'. You then sense the great optimism through the title track 'The Morning' about making the most of a new day.

The tempo rises on a few of the songs such as 'Baby Loves Me', which sounds like it could really be on 'Hombre Lobo' and the gospel-esque 'Looking Up'. The album is full of other great numbers, with wonderful instrumentation and heartfelt lyrics, my favourites of which are 'Spectacular Girl', the instrumental 'After The Earthquake', 'That's Not Her Way'and 'I Like The Way This Is Going' and finishes with the life affirming 'Mystery of Life' leaving on the optimistic note, 'No more sorrow and no more strife, always daylight following the night, good morning mystery of life'.

Finally a happy Eels album, showing that Mark Everett is in a good place at this moment. If you liked 'Hombre Lobo' and 'End Times'then this is a must have album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another masterpiece by the one man Eels, 3 Jan 2012

The Eels isn't really a band, it is the musical musing of one man Mark Everett. However, that doesn't discount the quality of this 'band' in any way, and this album is another masterpiece from the most under-rated musician working in the world. Highly recommended!

Most artists have a golden period after which they start to decline; some make one or two fantastic albums, some go on for longer: but eventually the muse begins to fade. The Beatles split very early, Amy Winehouse died after 2 wonderful albums: and yes Mark Everett's body of work stands comparison with the very greatest artists who have appeared since the sixties.

Well, E has had a much longer run than most with a string of 6 terrific albums from Beautiful Freak to Blinking Lights and Other Revelations (7 if you count "A man called E"). And these albums mostly came hot on the heels of each other, as if he could hardly record the stuff quickly enough, it was coming to him so quickly.

But now the ideas have slowed down, and the songs sound crafted instead of spontaneous, as if the creativity is running out, and he's trying to squeeze the most he possibly can from the limited ideas left. That's not to say that this is a bad album, it isn't: but it's a pale shadow of those 6 or 7 albums. And let's face it, the variety and scope of those recordings is far more than we had any right to expect.

I'll still buy his next release hoping for a miraculous return to form, but this is the third album after Hombre Lobo and End Times which don't quite cut it alongside his finest.
