Beautiful Freak


back in stock e the guitarist vocalist and songwriter with la band eels had already recorded two solo albums before teaming up with drummer butch and bassist tommy to produce beautiful freak opener and single 'novocaine for the soul' set the tone melodic articulate pop that like fellow la musician beck makes startling and inventive use of samples beats and odd arrangements the eels' music takes in postnirvana grunge soul country hiphop and even jazz all without sounding derivative e's intensely personal lyrics are similarly multifaceted blending wit angst disaffection and surreal urban detailas in the mournfully soundtracked crosscity trek of 'susan's house' throughout the eclectic swirl of musical influence and misanthropic irony the band never lose the ability to craft affecting laidback pop songs and subtle naggingly catchy hooks an inspired album and that rare thing an arthouse rock record full of memorable tunes
