Amoeba Review

04/04/2018

The long running Mark Oliver Everett vehicle Eels enters its 23rd year as he releases his 14th studio album overall with The Deconstruction. Initially introduced through a presser that begins with “The world is a mess” and ends with the postulation that “there are times you have to tear something apart to find something beautiful inside,” you might expect the music on The Deconstruction to be true to the more chaotic connotation of its title. But one listen to single “Today Is The Day” proves this is not the case with a bubbly, infectious pop rock groove and ebullient, life-affirming lyrics. Sure, the entire album isn’t solely cut from that same sunshine-y cloth. The title track delivers on that promised experimentation, but it's rooted in the Beach Boys/Beatles pop template, up through and including the mold set by modern indie rock studio tinkerers like Wilco, Spoon, and, well, Eels.
