Eels - Beautiful Freak-LP-South

Eels - Beautiful Freak


Eccentric & quirky are the best ways to describe the Eels' 1996 debut effort.

Concise pop tunes form the backbone of the album, yet tinges of despair & downright meanness surface just when you've been lulled into thinking this is another pop group, as titles like 'My Beloved Monster', 'Your Lucky Day In Hell' & 'Novocaine For The Soul' indicate. 'Beautiful Freak' is an outstanding debut in a catalogue that continues to be outstanding.åÊ
