    An “anything goes” approach to recording, which included opening up to let his bandmates collaborate on the songwriting, pays off in this captivating collection.

    Creativity sometimes croaks when domestic bliss walks in, but not here. [Sep 2010, p.96]
  3. It's sometimes hard to push past the (at times) seriously sappy lyrics and focus on the music. Fortunately for us though, Eels are the focused ones here and have proven once again their acumen for crafting quirkily moody pop songs that are impossible not to like.
  4. While some of this album feels a bit rushed at times, as a whole Tomorrow Morning is a welcome contrast to the darkness of its predecessors, and a deft summertime pop record. Lord knows, a little optimism in these strange times is welcome--even if it comes from an unlikely source.
  5. The subject, or sound, of Tomorrow Morning might not be as grabby as the spirited desire of El Hombre Lobo or the relationship devastation of End Times, but it offers up its share of unassuming wonders. Besides, hope is no small thing, especially when it comes in the wake of such hardship.
  6. An intriguing addition to the Eels canon.
  7. Eels' latest, Tomorrow Morning, is far too insular to mean much of anything outside itself. It's an exercise in self-referentiality, which might be more impressive if the music didn't sound like the folk-with-beats path Beck was smart enough to avoid.
