Eels, ‘Tomorrow Morning’ (E Works)

Known for chronicling personal tragedies (romantic disaster, deceased loved ones) with unsparing honesty, Mark Oliver Everett tries something different on the third Eels album in less than two years: embracing joy. He still delivers delicate ballads and frayed rockers in a wounded-beast rasp, but Everett is a changed man, scoffing at trouble in the bluesy electronica eruption “My Baby Loves Me” and tenderly extolling his sweetheart on “Spectacular Girl.” The wordless howl of delight on the exuberant gospel stomper “Looking Up” is Everett’s most compelling statement yet.
