Product Description

This follow-up to 1998's grief-stricken Electro-Shock Blues finds head Eel E (that's all, just E) on steadier emotional footing, but don't expect cascading rays of sunshine to break through the clouds that cover this Southern California popmeister's world. The tone is set by the imagistic opener, "Grace Kelly Blues," which captures snapshots of misbegotten souls--a mime, a truck driver, a mall rat, the star-crossed movie star/princess who gives the song its name--before focusing in on E himself, who volunteers, "Me, I'm feeling pretty good now ... I think you know I'll be OK." From there, we're immersed in E's own version of Pleasantville, where gorgeous melodies and ornate arrangements adorn sad-sack sentiments. In the end, Daises is the work of a gifted composer/producer/performer who is indeed feeling OK. Not great, mind you. But OK. --Steven Stolder

Format: Audio CD
Once in a while, maybe more so for some people such as myself, it feels great to get away from the pop chart junk, settle down on the road or in your bedroom, and give a listen to one of those brilliant, obscure groups that are too honest to be molded into an MTV mainstay. For their third studio effort, the beautifully bummed-out Eels return with their most subdued, yet no less melodic set of songs.
Like 1998's Electro Shock Blues, this album shows lead singer, E, tending towards quieter, folkish tunes like Grace Kelly Blues and Packing Blankets, with some more aggressive tracks like "The Sound of Fear." Then there are beauties such as "I Like Birds" that will inevitably have listeners waving their heads around, nodding to the hypnotic harmony.
This album is happier than its predecessors, the brilliant debut album and Electro Shock Blues, which focused on the recent deaths of people in E's life. That does not necessarily mean that this is a happy album. E may feel as if he has failed if any Eels album is labeled "happy." Like the editorial review says above, E is feeling OK. Just...OK.
Eels fans have no excuse to neglect this album, and with its comfortable melodies and lyrics stuffed with vivid imagery and real-life emotion, Daisies of the Galaxy will certainly calm the mood of anyone, Eels fan or not. No, it won't win album of the year on TV, but it may win album of the year in the hearts of many who give it a listen or two. That's what counts.

Format: Audio CD
Daisies of the Galaxy is the third album released by the underated Eels. After 1998's depressing masterpiece Electro-Shock Blues this one is being touted as a "sunny pop" album. Although there are some happy songs on here the album will not lift your spirits like you'd expect.
"The Sound of Fear" is the first truly classic song on the album. It's typical of the album as it has a more upbeat nature to it but at the same time incorporates depressing, sarcastic lyrics. "Flyswatter" is hooky little number that features the perfect line "headlights, field-mice, spiders in the kitchen/ don't think twice about whatever keeps you itching." Daisies' single ""Mr E's Beautiful Blues" is the best track on here but is tucked away quietly at the end as a b-side. Sarcasm runs through it as E repeats "goddamned right it's a beautiful day" over a breezy tune with wonderful pretty harmonies.
All of the tracks on "Daisies" are good in there own way. "Grace Kelly Blues", "Jeannie's Diary", "Wooden Nickels" and "A Daisy Through Concrete" are all lovely introspective tracks that make the album far more solemn than it appeared. "It's a Mother----" and "Selective Memory" are among the most depressing songs E has ever penned.
Without a doubt "Daisies" is still a change of pace for the Eels. The songs are, in most cases, the most upbeat that they've ever done. That feeling of sarcasm and misery still lingers on this album so don't be expecting "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" for 45 minutes. END

I must be one of the few people in the world to have found the last Eels c.d. 'Electro Shock Blues' just a little too depressing to enjoy.However on this the latest c.d. from Mr. E and Butch I've found myself feeling far happier!The songs may still be quite (lyrically) melancholy but they are supported by some of the best musical arrangements I've heard in a long time.After listening to the whole album you find there is a real feel good factor to the c.d.The first two songs are accompanied by beautiful,gentle horns and great back up musicians in the shape of Peter Buck and Grant Lee Philips.They drift along in a gentle laid back way and set the tone for the entire c.d.'I Like Birds' is a delightfully 'wacky' song,very much akin to the music of They Might Be Giants.Track 7 'It's A M......' is the most haunting,heart-broken song I've heard in a long time.Lyrically it captures the emotions and thoughts of normal people in a way the Whitney's,Britney's of this world would find impossible.'Jeannie's Diary'has not only a radio friendly tune but lyrics which give a brilliant insight to the inner thoughts of Mr. E.Finally the last track 'Mr. E's Beautiful Blues'-okay it may sound a bit too like Beck but it's still a great tune,cheerfully played-but filled with killer irony about all that's not great in this world.If you are looking for loud raucous guitars,tunes of break-neck speed go elsewhere-but if you are feeling in the need of a moments relaxation put this c.d. on and feel any stress or anxiety dissappear.

One of those intriguing albums that makes you wonder how you missed it when it first came out. Ambitious and clever, full of wry sardonic tunes. Another reviewer described the music as breaking and "quivering with emotional instability," and that sums up the moody melodic tension perfectly.

Despite the sarcastic / bittersweet feel to most of the disc, the final cut "Mr Es Beautiful Blues" is one of the most optimistically melodic post-depressive songs I've ever gotten stuck in my head. God-damn right, its beautiful day.

Bonus: The band's alter ego, MC Honky ([...] put out the retro tune "Sonnet no. 3 (Like  A Duck)." The video is way beyond amusing. [...]
