When gazing at the Eels 1996 debut from a distance you are lulled into a trance by its somber alluring pop melody. You can’t take your eyes off Beautiful Freak, with its Keane style cover which mask elements of melancholy and despair that run through this set of 12 masterfully disturbing songs. Singer/songwriter E, (Mark Oliver Everett) sets the tone for the first and next several offerings by the Eels with a well crafted, remarkably addictive pour. Enjoy the wickedly good stream.
