Eels! That’s how the brief Superbowl advert that bandleader E put together goes, and it is also how we responded when we saw the crate-load of reissued Eels albums that Universal have sent through to us. Daisies Of The Galaxy, the third of the band’s records, is filled with high-quality leftfield indie-pop, including semi-hit single ‘Mr E’s Beautiful Blues’.
10/10 Jack Customer review, 2nd November 2015
The fact is, this is Mark Everett's best album hands-down. Start to finish there are great songs on Daisies of the Galaxy. The title track is a brilliant way to start things off and how can you go wrong with tunes like "Flyswatter", "Wooden Nickels", and "Selective Memory"? The arrangements are gorgeous with a good dose of strings and horns. Guest musicians including Peter Buck and Grant Lee Phillips shine. While he makes excellent use of the supporting cast, this is E's album and his copious talents as a genius songwriter and musician are what makes this collection of tunes work so gloriously.
