Eels – Hombre Lobo

July 6, 2009


Mark E and twelve songs of desire. If you’ve been following what he’s been doing with Eels, it has always been about it in most of the songs. It is what has kept me going back to these albums – I sensed the blues and sincerity. The music is often so simple, I can often figure out how to play them on guitar in two takes. But it rocks. And when it’s a ballad, it’s like he sat down next to us and expressed it from the bottom. It’s also why I sometimes have to make a step away.

All songs on this album are what he imagines would be a soundtrack to the emotions of Dog Faced Boy, being a grown up werewolf, as he seeks the affection of a girl he’s in love with. It’s the longing and fresh blood of an ordinary man whose timing may be off.
