So I'm revisiting this LP. I had forgotten how good it was.. very easy listening...
It's not 'poop'.
it's really not.</detailed analysis>
I put it down and said, 'Ewwwwwwww'.
But have started relistening to a lot of old stuff that I 'put down to rest' and am actually enjoying it.
Sea Change, of course, was fucking incredible.. but this is listenable on a Sunday whilst reading the newspapers, eating eggs on toast, and drinking filtered coffee... it's good.. it's evoking nice feelings and that IS GOOD.
I'm listening to it VERY VERY VERY LOUDLY... nice bass... niiiiiiiiice.
maybe its something to do with it being played every day in a shop i worked in for 2 years. i just see everything he's done since sea change (which was amazing) as a crap stepback to his least interesting period (the yawnsome Odelay). give me another mutations or vultures any day.
everything before odelay is better than anything post-sea change
I didn't know that!
I'm looking at sleeve notes now...
Love it, Beck's best album.
I am so happy to have found this LP again... It's great moving rooms and finding stuff you forgot about..
but the best post-odelay...
why? He's such a handsome young man, and a scientologist...
I love the bass.. his use of bass is so distinct, innit...
Cool - nice bit of info there..
self satisfied smug crap.
remains one of the best live shows i've ever seen..
although i did see him do a cover of cry me a river when he did that acousric tour, which was ace
the midnite vultures tour!
but compared to any of Beck's output before it, totally crap. This guy can do so much better!
If you don't have it, you must get his folk album on Calvin Johnson's K Records called One Foot In The Grave. Brilliant.
but thanks for the tip. I'll investigate.
go on, pinpoint it for us.
i'm not being an argumentative egit, i just want to know where all the pretense is.
since when did scientology become pretentious?
