Album Review

Prior to fronting the '90s experimental indie rock band the Eels, a man called E (born Mark Everett) was making heavenly pop music on his own. This debut solo release contains typical quirky melodies and mind-boggling lyrics, but E hits upon lush harmonies similar to the likes of Elton John, the Beach Boys, and Paul McCartney. He is a perfectionist, playing every instrument and orchestrating all the material found on A Man Called E.

He's a love-sick puppy, a hopeless romantic, and a daydreamer. Such drama is captured in album highlights "Hello Cruel World," "Are You and Me Gonna Happen?," and "E's Tune." His lyrical poetry is his therapy, a common talent found in later Eels material. But you have to appreciate E's effort. He's thoughtful and almost touching. He's real. Now that's pretty refreshing.

Poignant Pop

A captivating brief album that still stands high above most of the work that E has done with the Eels. E's evocative lyricism has the same melancholy that his later work hold but still has a tinge of optimism that makes it the kind of album you can turn to at the end of a bad day. All of it couched in some brilliant melodies and warm arrangements that just don't get the attention they deserved then or even less so now.
