5.0 out of 5 stars Eels in Peak Form June 3 2009
By Brandon J. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Eels is a great band, and it has been since before it even WAS a band (I'm referring, of course, to E's two solo albums before forming the group). E has always balanced his edgy side with a gentler, softer aspect, composing songs like small trinkets or snapshots. My favorites are "Electro-Shock Blues," a masterpiece of mourning, and "Souljacker," in which E indulged his more grotesque inclinations. Hombre Lobo merges the best of both worlds.

One of the great things about Eels is that even when rocking out with heavily distorted guitars, as in "Lilac Breeze," they never lose their sense of melody. There's a real love of songcraft here, not to mention a mastery of the recording studio. Studio trickery never overwhelms the songs - and the songs are never lacking for the right accompaniment (notice the explosive chorus of "Tremendous Dynamite.")

It's too soon to tell (and doesn't really matter) how this will rank amongst Eels's other cds, but one thing's for sure: this is the perfect Eels album for 2009, and a great addition to an already stunning catalog.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock stars, parallel universes and remembrances June 27 2009
By Manoj Joshi - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I finished watching Mark's documentary twice, a story of exploration, where he retrospectively journeys into the life of his late Father Hugh Everett who was a remarkable physicist. Hugh is known for his paper on parallel universe that throws a new light on Neils Bohr's perspective of quantum physics. Hugh's battles with world renowned physicists and his ups and downs were not noticed by Mark, until Hugh passed away suddenly due to a heart failure at the age of 51.

Mark hardly ever talked with his Dad when he was alive, partly because his Dad was lost in deep thought and research work, and partly because of the ups and downs he went through while trying to convince his theory of parallel universes to the world's renowned physicists.

Mark knew he had to find out more about his Dad's journeys through his life. He set out to meet all the professors and government officials with whom Hugh had worked and interacted during his life. He also went back and transferred all the dictaphone tapes of his Dad's meetings to a known format to get more clues on his possible journey.

Mark's efforts have proved to be successful, as more people today are aware of his father's outstanding contribution to physics. Over the years, Mark realized that his father was too early for his time and the world was not ready for such a radical theory.

When I listen to Mark's music, I can hear the story, agony, joy, disappointing, frustration and excitement in his singing. I really think Mark is a really talented musician, and also in many ways you will realize that he is very much like his Dad. Mark has re-discovered himself through his Dad's story and his music ability and is a whole new person after he finished doing the biography of his Dad.

I really enjoy Mark's music, his song writing ability and the uniqueness of his talent.

3.0 out of 5 stars More of the same. June 5 2009
By Mel R. Scurbica - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD isn't bad, but it's not great. Musically, it harkens back to past albums and doesn't break much new ground.

The "enhanced" part of the album is just a link to a website where you can download a 30-minute "making of" documentary, where you'll be transfixed by Mark's beard and wonder why anyone in the 21st century would want to look like a mountain man from the 1800s.
