On Eels’ ninth album, Mark ‘E’ Oliver Everett explores many of the themes that have long cropped up throughout his oeuvre, from loneliness through the idea of what it is to be happy – a loving relationship? Artistry? – to his lyrical staple of birds. Album highlight and first song proper here is entitled I’m a Hummingbird, and comes over like a loose cousin of his last record’s Little Bird, except that where Everett was formerly dejected and alone, here he casts himself the bird, “beautiful and free.” Over arcing strings he considers “all the seconds and the minutes… The years of my life,” declaring that “It was all worth it, to be here now”.
The general theme and idea of the whole thing is one of renewal, of the light that glimmered as End Times closed out, manifesting itself in something brilliant; a man finally content. But this rebirth is one communicated mainly through platitudes, of which This Is Where It Gets Good epitomises. Sitting at the heart of the record, Everett hammers home the song title, surmising that “the spirits come together,” before the funk riff the song is built out of takes centre-stage for four excruciatingly aimless minutes.
Yet Everett is on the upswing here – as he acknowledges on the sweet Spectacular Girl, “Some things just happen ‘cause they have to be”. After the bleak vision presented us on End Times (where he sang frankly of divorce against a backdrop of madness and apocalypse-mongering), it is a relief to hear him at ease with himself and the world surrounding. Straight off the bat, Tomorrow Morning is a more playful, relaxed listen than its predecessor. Indeed, Everett views this record as the conclusion of a trilogy which began with Hombre Lobo before descending into the misery present on End Times.
It’s not serenity that’s the problem on Tomorrow Morning though – it just feels slack in execution; like a series of vaguely pretty sketches or half thought-through ideas. It’s a palate-cleanser for sure, and whatever lies next for Everett, you have to hope it’s a little more emphatic than what’s on offer here.--James Skinner

The production is clear and crisp and with my copy, there's a second CD, but like his last album, it's so short so why not make them available to everybody on a single album?
"E" is going through a creative period at the moment with an album coming out every few months, but with the quality and variety that is being produced, I for one am not complaining.
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!
Also worthwhile getting the excellent 4 track bonus EP, with the songs at the same level of quality as 14 song album.
This is not a cheerful album, although that's not to say it's a bad album. I would say that it definitely is about moving on and leaving oneself open to positive change, about letting go of grief and anger and on those grounds is a positive experience.
There's not much you can dance to, though, not even in the privacy of your own room.
Not one for new or casual Eels fans, and best enjoyed as the final part of the Hombre Lobo / End Times / Tomorrow Morning 'trilogy'.
The complete opposite is true for 'End Times', littered with gems and I'm struggling to find a track I don't like.
The 4 star rating for this is completely misrepresentative.
Anybody want to buy a second hand copy ?
N.B. If your new to Eels you're better off checking out 'Beautiful Freak', 'Souljacker', the aforementioned 'End Times' or (my personal favourite) 'Blinking Lights And Other Revelations'.Things the Grandchildren Should Know
It's "only" the third album in a row (since Hombre Lobo in 2009), but the atmosphere changes everytime.
We can reproch Eels to do the same thing over and over (it's not true by the way), but it works for the fans.
Note that the EP album within Tomorrow Morning is really great (more than the album imo).
