I love The Eels and seeing them on Tuesday reminded me how amazing their first record is. Beautiful Freak describes Mark Oliver Everertt (aka E) so well.

The songs on this record are some of his best, even though he’s put out six wonderful records plus a live record and the B-sides record which is also worth owning. We’ve got them all.

Beatiful Freak, Susan’s House, Novacaine For The Soul, Spunky, and the absolutely amazing My Beloved Monster are all on this record.

If you’ve never heard the Eels, start with this record and then just keep going. It will take some time to fall in love with them, but its worth it.
