Daisies Of The Galaxy
Album Summary

This album has been submitted by a user and is not included in any edition of the book.

Daisies of the Galaxy is the third studio album by American rock band Eels. It was released on February 28, 2000, in the United Kingdom, and March 14 in the United States, by record label DreamWorks. When the band's label requested that a clean version of "It's a Motherfucker" be recorded, the song was re-written as "It's a Monster Trucker", with modified lyrics and sound clips of lead singer Mark Oliver "E" Everett speaking "trucker lingo" on a CB radio.

9/10. Ooh, when I saw this I wasn't looking forward to it because I didn't think Beautiful Freak was all that, but it seems like another instance of the main list just not picking the most enjoyable album to represent a particular artist.

Oh yeah, a better entry for Eels by leaps and bounds, just overall very interesting for the time period.

Interesting record. Didn't know the artist, Beck vibes also. Nice discovery.

I slightly prefer this to "Beautiful Freak," but I still don't like it. As the cover might imply, this mostly sounds like warped children's music.

Really liked this one. I like the singers voice and I remember this band from the Beautiful Freak album that was on the list. Will check out more of their stuff.

The causes between indie music, transcendental sadness, and time feel complicated in Eelsworld. The middle term comforts, as either an everyday or a just-at-the-right-time. The record explicitly plays with the clock as well: "Angry little whore" is a new archetype, even as aspiration, and infancy bookends.

I love the Eels but for some reason I don't listen to them that often. So I was very happy when this one came up. Great album! 4 stars.

I've heard the name Eels before but don't know anything about the band. I long ago decided in my head they were a garage punk/noise/alternative band, kinda like the Pixies but heavier. Ok that’s the wrongest I’ve ever been in the 1001 albums list. I’m usually at least ~75% right. This falls under the big “alternative” umbrella but beyond that it has no resemblance to what I predicted. I hear a bit of Nirvana in the vocals and lyrics, but otherwise it’s… alternatively poppy? Bit of piano, bit of guitar. Not too bad, didn’t drive me insane but wouldn’t listen again. 3/5.

Pretty much what I expected from another Eels album. I think if I was a bit more lyrically inclined I’d have more fun with these albums. 6/10

“I Like Birds” is kind of cute. Other than that track the rest are sorta meh for me. Not my thing in general, although there are a few tracks where Eels overall are not bad.

Pretty solid alt rock, but didn't rise particularly above the pack for me.

... or how a chronic depressive tries to give the image of a person who seeks to be happy... without succeeding. Luckily I don't see myself reflected in it, but I appreciate the quality of Mr. E's art and especially his inner struggle that he reflects in this set of songs

Eels' music has never been something that really grabbed me. I understand that it's good, but I just don't feel it. I can listen to this and actually enjoy it, but it doesn't stick with me.

Eels is good, I love the vocalists voice, but the album is just kinda boring.

Hard to explain but I simply cannot get into his music. Maybe it's the depressive vibe that hangs around the songs, I just don't know.

Indie music crossing over with Beck and guitar driven rock.
