I think this band could be my new musical crush of 2011
The last three he released in the space of a year or so are patchier, but you can get a pretty great album if you take the best songs from each (would have been much better as one album really). And his autobiography is pretty good.
Electro-shock Blues is my favourite, brilliant record.
but I quite like Hombre Lobo.
I'd also recommend you track down the Oh What A Beautiful Morning live album, which is live recordings of the Eels Orchestra tour from 2001. The CD is out of print but I think its on iTunes. It's really really really good, and there's a run in the middle of Ant Farm / Climbing to the Moon / Grace Kelly Blues / Daisies of the Galaxy that's just heartbreaking.
Easily. It's no London Calling or Exile, but it's close.
