Basically the constant project of Mark Oliver Everett (and whomever he is playing with at the time), Eels are one of those many acts that will always gain musical praise from critics, though continue to struggle to sell a lot of units. This is one of the better Alternative Rock acts of the past twenty years, but with only one modest hit and a discography (while excellent) is not exactly influential; this praised band will find it difficult to enter the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
