    Default Beck

    I got the new album "information" on iTunes last night and it came with videos and an interactive booklet(Havent figured out the booklet,mine must be broke). Anyway the album is pretty good.

    The production is flawless. I used to keep up with Beck from Mellow gold to Mutations and then I guess I got tired of waiting for something more upbeat than Seachange. His production is always interesting and as he made more albums it got even more experimental.

    Beck is legend material. From videos to live shows to albums , the guy goes all out.

    I´ve listened to him since Mellow Gold and Loser he has definately evolved as an artist since then. I enjoyed Odelay, Sea Change and Guero the most but I havent heard his latest cd. Mutations had its moments too

    I recently got Guero And guerolito.


    El-P does one of the Guerolito remixes and so does Diplo. Both albums are must haves.




    Its funny that this got bumped cuz the other day at work a co-worker asked which Beck album he should start with and I said MEllow Gold.

    I usually try to shy away from advising the "first album" of an artist or group
    (especially if they have a large catalog) but Mellow Gold is where it all gets laid out and then it seems that from there , he gave each album after that its own flavor.

    Mellow gold is a good mix of all the styles that Beck can do. And dude got Many Styles.

    YEah but I read an interview where he said that one foot shouldnt even count cuz thats something else altogether.

    Here is a excerpt from wiki


    Geffen's official debut release in 1994 of Mellow Gold—culled from sessions with Rothrock, Schnapf, and Stephenson—made Beck a mainstream success.[13] At the same time, he released Stereopathetic Soulmanure on Flipside Records and One Foot in the Grave on independent K Records. Beck took his act on the road in 1994 with a worldwide tour, followed by a spot on the main stage of the 1995 Lollapalooza tour. Some critics still panned him as a one-hit wonder, and audiences' familiarity with "Loser" (especially at Lollapalooza), along with their apparent lack of interest in his other work, only reinforced his image as such.[17]








































    I heard Stereo pathetic soul manure and I didnt like it at the time. Seemed like a lot of chaos.
