Nine years ago this week, Eels released Daisies of the Galaxy, a record of which PopMatters’ Fred Kovey said: “The melodies are old and familiar, the rhyme schemes are Mother Goose-simple, but the off-kilter production and lyrics betray the music in a manner that would be ironic if the whole thing weren’t delivered with so much conviction.”
