Tomorrow Morning immediately sets itself apart as one of the Eels’ sunnier records, but that status will probably come at the expense of the rest of the band’s catalog being characterized as dark and brooding.


Everett himself ranked End Times as his most downbeat album to date. And, coming from the man responsible for 1998's self-lacerating masterpiece Electro-Shock Blues, this is saying quite a lot. The forward-looking album title ought to clue the listener in: Tomorrow Morning is an optimistic, cheery album, and not just by Eels' standards. "I didn't want to go any further down", said Everett in a recent interview. "After [End Times], there was only one direction to go. I had to go up!"


Even when he's trying to sound upbeat, E just sounds typically downhearted. That idea could be intriguing, but even if you ignore his tired delivery of lines like "I'm a hummingbird, beautiful and free," this album just sounds bad, clattering with rudimentary beats and chintzy keyboards that make the songs blur into each other.

Pitchfork really don't like Mark Everett do they?
I really liked the feel of this album, it is filled with a lot of sweet and innocent love songs, beautifully crafted melodies and a feeling of hope and possibilities. Nothing polarizing about it at all, just a nice listen from beginning to end.

Favoirte moments: The Morning, What I Have To Offer, Oh So Lovely, I like The Way This Is Going.
