Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (12/26/96, pp.196-198) - "...E sings with a gruff, throaty vulnerability that is far preferable to the irritating weediness of Weezer's Rivers Cuomo....BEAUTIFUL FREAK has a spare, tight-focus sound that flatters E's low-key melodies...and his keen eye for absurdist detail..."

Entertainment Weekly (10/11/96, p.92) - "The Eels' postgrunge pop melodies and quirky, intelligent production make for catchy modern rock that's miles ahead of the competition..." - Rating: B

Q (12/96, p.147) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...Imagine Beck's ODELAY rhythms, The Beatles' songwriting maturity, Sparklehorse's simple production, Brian Wilson's visionary editing and arrangements and you have a complete musical vision, a genre-spanning soundscape that reels you in with its myriad hooks..."

Melody Maker (12/20-27/97, pp.66-67) - Ranked #43 on Melody Maker's list of 1997's "Albums Of The Year."

NME (Magazine) (12/20-27/97, pp.78-79) - Ranked #33 in NME's 1997 Critics' Poll.
