Eels is an American rock band formed 1995 in Los Angeles, California, by singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mark Oliver Everett, aka "E". Band members have changed over the years, both in the studio and on stage, making Everett the only official member for most of the band's work. Eels' music is often filled with themes about family, death, and lost love. "the Eels manage to startle the listener regularly, but very, very subtly. So, while the music just floats quite naturally, almost unremarkably, it is the orchestrations, the samples, the vocal delivery and the morbid lyrics that will kill you." is how one reviewer described the experience of listening to their music. Since their debut in 1996, Eels has released twelve studio albums, seven of which charted in the Billboard 200. Standouts include Beautiful Freak, Electro-Shock Blues, Daisies of the Galaxy and Blinking Light and Other Revelations.
