5 Daisies Of The Galaxy is simply out of this world...londoncalling | 17/12/2008 | See all londoncalling's reviews (42)Top 100 Reviewer Top 10 Music Reviewer I'm hoping that someone is reading this right now, as it may be because you are showing some interest in buying this CD. Well buy it, just buy it right now. This is a marvelous album. A sweet, with a sombre, sometimes rock background, again showing off E's talent, resulting in another testament to his writing and the bands musicianship from the very beginning to it's end.As with all Eels records, you get more than what you expect, and this is no different. Just when you thought you were on a dreamy journey of beautiful strings and sliding guitars, you get the bold and exciting I Like Birds & Flyswater thrown in to mix things up a bit. By then it's back to the more downbeat tracks before finishing with the radio friendly Mr E's Beautiful Blues - which as is said on the sleeve, a hidden track.I cannot recommend this enough, simply fabulous rock/pop music, with touches of blues, country, and some electronic tweaks here and there. Eels done it superbly well again with Daisies Of The Galaxy, and they continue to do it today.In my mind, Eels never receive the exposure to the public they so richly deserve, but then again maybe that's a good thing as it feels more personal to those of us who know and love them.If you are going to buy this, you might want to check out Electro Shock Blues, Blinking Lights And Other Revelations , Useless Trinkets, Beautiful Freak (go read their reviews) but heck you can buy anything Eels have produced and not be disappointed.Quite possibly the most underrated band, quite possibly the greatest songwriter since...Lenn...dare I say it!!!
