One of my favourite albums - I love the Eels but took ages to get into them - thanks brothers, now saw them live a few times. Flower is my favourite track but there are a number of top tunes here including Mental, Your Lucky Day in Hell and Manchild in addition to the more wider known Susan's House, Novocaine and My Beloved Monster

One of the Eels best. It's a great darkly humorous record with some superb offbeat rock. Novacaine for the soul, and, Susan's house, are obvious standouts but there's plenty of great stuff here. Stories from Weirdsville.

Probably the album any non Eels fan could pick up and listen to most easily. Will always be grateful to Novocaine for introducing me to E and Eels, and this album for not disappointing. As an Eels fan you can't sink into this like Electro Shock Blues but still a good listen.

I can see the appeal and I might have loved this back in the day if I had picked up the CD or cassette. I find it a bit repetitive and poppy -- but indeed good. Everybody has their own experience with each band and album. Cheers, fans.

Lovely album. Favourites are Not Ready Yet & Flower. Just shaded by Electro-Shock Blues for me.

Great album. Less refined and consistent than E's later work, but thats sorta what makes this album worth listening to.

I aged this album to death. I couldn't play it anymore as it brought back to many memories. Haunting and joyous ....Fun, insightful . Wonderful
