More than a little harsh,

This review is from: Souljacker - Limited Edition (Audio CD)
Upon hearing the Souljacker: part 1 single, I knew this album would be nothing like Daisies od the Galaxy. I would appear to have been proved right. This is nothing like the previous albums in terms of the style of music, although the dark, pessimistic lyrics aren't too dissimilar from Electro-shock Blues. As for the tracks, Souljacker: part 1, Dog Faced Boy and That's Not Really Funny are the immediate standouts, but, as with every previous Eels album, there's not a weak track in sight, although many of the tracks won't appeal immediately to all Eels fans, especially if you were expecting a Daisies part 2. This is right up there with Mercury Rev's All is Dream and The Strokes' Is This It for best album of the year.
