I'm a big sucker for honky tonk piano and 70s singer songwriter pastiche .. dig that tune


Wow sounds like stretching for ideas in the studio and the producer says 'hey let's just start with a groove and see what happens' and you know what happens, a groove with a shit non-song underneath while layers get piled on over four minutes

The new one is like a Pharrell song (not in a good way). It sounds like Beck trying to imitate a lazy imitation of Beck.

First impression:

Sounds like Beck went undercover as a high school student to try and figure out what makes the kids tick, then went back to the studio and pointed a gun at his production team and said GIVE ME A HIT.

i honestly thought/think it sounded like an imagine dragons-quality song when i heard it on the radio the other day. his voice gave him away, otherwise i wouldn't have SHAZAMM'D it.

Man this album is giving me second-hand embarrassment. Like this is a such a deliberate cash grab but I still feel bad for Beck, and I really don't like Beck

Morning Phase and this comprise his instagram-filtered latter period - one an Authentic Sonics cash grab and the other a Pop Event cash grab.

I don't know if I ever have actually listened to anything before Mutations all the way through. I've tried a bunch of times but have never been able to do it.

alright listening now. sounds like phoenix (and lol JUSTICE) in a couple parts. but basically, just a distillation of modern radio "alt pop" stuff and probably a cashgrab. his personality creeps through a little i guess.

i remember reading an interview where he said he's got several albums worth of music that hes never released and sat on over the years. i guess at this point the best i can hope for is that he releases some of that stuff.
