Worthy compilation for a great talent,

This review is from: Meet The Eels : Essential Eels Vol. 1 1996-2006 (Audio CD)
Great to see a decent Eels compilation released - hopefully people will start to realise what a huge talent Mr Mark Oliver Everett (E) is. The track listing is satisfying for both old and new Eels fans. The majority of the "famous" tracks are on this album (Novacaine For The Soul, Susan's House, Souljacker Pt1, Last Stop This Town, etc - all still sounding great) but the remix of Climbing To The Moon is a real lost treasure. One minor whinge - would have liked to have seen Woman Driving Man Sleeping and Rock Hard Times on here instead of, say, That's Not Really Funny, but this is a small complaint as the music on offer here is often inspiring, especially Railroad Man and 3 Speed.
