By Lumpy VINE VOICE on 7 Jun. 2009
Format: Audio CD
At 1st listen, this didn't seem the most instantly memorable Eels album but after having it for less than a week, E's songs have already worked their magic and got into my head. The album draws from a full range of styles from across the Eels back catalogue - Prizefighter, Tremendous Dynamite and Fresh Blood are heavy, snarling tunes; My Timing Is Off and All the Beautiful Things are smart, catchy melodies; What's a Fella Supposed To Do has the most amazing guitar riff under-pinning the song. There isn't a Top 10 single here but just 12 high quality tunes that collectively make a fantastic album; the return of Knuckles and Koool G Murder have added a richness and depth to the sound versus some of the recent Eels releases when E was effectively a one man band. Rest assured that this album certainly stands up against some of the Eels' career highlights, such as Electro-Shock Blues, Daisies of the Galaxy and Blinking Lights & Other Revelations.

For a couple of extra quid, the DVD edition is also recommended, which features footage of the album being recorded in what looks like E's front room!

Hombre Lobo is the seventh studio album from the Eels. It arrives in the wake of a B sides compilation and the Live in the Town Hall with Strings releases. The last studio album released was Blinking Lights and Other Revelations, which reached critical acclaim but left me wondering what on Earth was going on.

I am delighted with Hombre Lobo. It is absolutely the best Eels album I could have hoped for. E has put together a wonderful portfolio of melodies. There is a really strong sense of the journey that the Eels have been on, and influences have been drawn from all their recording experiences.

"The Look That You Gave That Guy" brings us the quiet Eels of the Beautiful Freak days, and "Beginners Luck" reminds me of the songs released for the Shrek soundtracks. "Lilac Breeze" is reminiscent of Shootenanny, and "The Longing" takes me back to the Electro Shock Blues, without depressing me too much. The Daisies of the Galaxy are represented by "My Timing is Off". "Tremendous Dynamite" is the hardest rocking song that I have ever had the pleasure to enjoy from the Eels. I can't stop listening to it on repeat. It is dirty rock at its best, and is the song that Souljacker wished it had on it.

That said, I feel that the progression in the Eels is also shown in this album. "Fresh Blood" is an excellent innovative track, which harnesses a slightly more electronic sound than we are used to, and has a simply electrifying 'chorus' which is best listened to as loud as you can bear it.

I can't recommend this strongly enough to Eels fans. It is simply quintessential Eels; you couldn't call yourself a fan if you didn't enjoy this.

Bloodthirsty like a werewolf, desire hasn't been a topic that Mark Oliver Everett has shied away from over his fifteen years as an alternative-rock pioneer. Although his songwriting has always remained exposed and generous in honesty, never has a man sounded so out in the open as E does on this concept album on that very subject. It's difficult to fully gain awareness of the actual attitude E takes towards seducing sexy ladies, with the lyrical content varying between a desperate, lust-filled man and one so wounded that he can't continue. Nevertheless, throughout `Hombre Lobo', he manages to take your breath away.

Strictly speaking, this is a concept album, but you need not know that. Instead you could interpret this record as a truthful collection of Eels' most naked accounts on seeking love. A proverbial pendulum switches musically and personally between the obnoxious, edgy numbers ('Tremendous Dynamite') and the beautiful, damaged ballads ('The Longing'). Each track maintains the accessibility factor that comes with Eels, but the variety feels like something new, almost on a level of the diverse nature of `Souljacker' in 2001. It's in the words he sings that E truly excels. The most poignant moment of the aching account `The Longing' is the revelation "I think she knows, that when I say that I would die for her, it's not just words, I really would" and on the flipside of that, there's the dark, almost stalker-like account of the itch on `Fresh Blood', which suddenly opens up with the declarative "I'm more alone than I've ever been, help me out of this shape I'm in". Be it a concept album, be it E's words or not, those words still get to the very core of your thinking.

No matter what the medium, this mans creative output is always superb (lets ignore 'A Man Called E'). His writing, film making, recorded music and live performances are consistently mouldbreaking and unique. This is no exception.

From the opening howl it is a rollercoaster ride all the way to the introspective reflections and unfailing optimism of Ordinary Man. The best love songs are allways the sorrowful tales of unrequited love, and The Look You Gave That Guy is on par with Nick Caves' Brompton Oratory.

The album rocks out and ambles along in equal measure. True to his style and a step forward also. I can't imagine a lover of good music being disappointed with this record.

The last words of the last song are 'I'm No Ordinary Man'. What's not to like about Mark Oliver Everett? Man Wolf Indeed!
