the music equivelant of a teddy bear,
By A Customer
This review is from: Daisies of the Galaxy (Audio CD)
The eels are certainly an intersting group. There first album was a mixed bag of songs filled with different emotions. Their second album was rather depressing. This album however is well... happy. Don't let that deter you, though. It is fantastic. From the opener "Grace Kelly Blues" with its supposedly reassuring lyrics ("I'm doing pretty godd as of now") to the forced happiness of the last bonus track ("Goddamn right, it's a beautiful day") this album is a must have. The "sweet" music masks strangely comic lyrics and a fantastic, sad ballad (Its a motherf****r)as well as some very strange songs (I like birds). Indeed "I've got a feeder for you to perch on". So sit back in your chair with a cup of cocoa and relax.
