YMMV: Eels
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: "Things the Grandchildren Should Know" (the song), E's tribute to his late father — the famous physicist Hugh Everett III — with whom he never had a close relationship.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The answering machine message in "Manchild" is a real one from E's sister, who suffered from depression and schizophrenia, and committed suicide not long after the album was released. Knowing this makes dialogue like "Because we're troopers" and "God...why am I so tired?" particularly chilling and heartbreaking.
  • The Woobie: E himself.
