Eels – Beautiful Freak

Published on 11 March 2019 by

      Beautiful Freak is the debut studio album by American alternative rock band Eels. It was released on 13 August 1996 and was the first record released by record label DreamWorks. Beautiful Freak is largely the solo work of musician Mark Oliver Everett, and is his first album using the full band name Eels in an attempt to get the records in the same general location in the stores as his previous works under the name “E”. The album is produced by E, Jon Brion, Mark Goldenberg and Michael Simpson. James Chrispell of AllMusic wrote: “Concise pop tunes form the backbone of the album, yet tinges of despair and downright meanness surface just when you’ve been lulled into thinking this is another pop group”. Many instruments are used on this album. Piano, Guitar, Banjo and many samples making it an interesting album to listen to. There are no bad songs and some very good ones. Beloved Monster is fun, Spunky very sweet. The quality of songs got better after this album, but this one is very diverse.
