Album Review: EELS - The Deconstruction (8/10)

Featuring the talents of Koool G Murder, P-Boo and The Deconstruction Orchestra & Choir, Mark Oliver Everett’s 12th entry synthesizes unmatched majesty with humble nobility, transforming workaday life sketches into eminent delectables. Better known as E, the enigmatic frontman gurgles personal tales like painful confessions, his unconventional voice meshing neatly with lush instrumentation. Like a crème brulee for the ears, this recipe delivers a luscious treat best consumed in sensible, discrete bites.
