Album Reviews: February 2008

 

Eels - Meet The Eels: Essential Eels Vol. 1 (Geffen) 21/01/2008

T: Well this is long overdue. A "Greatest Hits" of sorts, featuring a whole Aladdin's Cave of gems, along with a couple of new recordings, most interestingly a version of Missy Elliott's "Get Ur Freak On"! You can only marvel at how fresh modern day classics like "Mr. E's Beautiful Blues", "My Beloved Monster" and "Your Lucky Day In Hell" still sound. Brilliant stuff.

N: A worthwhile insight into this band, who have surely escaped the level of popular acclaim they truly deserve. This collection of idiosyncratic pop walks the line between the alternative and mainstream superbly. 9/10
