Every now and then you've got to stop worrying about shit, not think too hard and have a bit of fun.....and this is what this albums like for me. May not be Becks best, or indeed my favourite but when I don't want to have to concentrate too hard this is one I enjoy listening to.

I generally dig Beck but after the first two tracks - Sexx Laws and Nicotine & Gravy - the album just turns into a pile of messy proto hipster nonsense.

Questo disco nella discografia del suo autore rappresenta abbastanza un'eccezione: un album da festa, l'aveva definito Beck, ed a ragione. Si balla, ci si muove, è musica frizzante, attiva: altri suoi lavori, invece, contengono una musica magari più profonda ma pure più noiosa...

Beck does silly fun dance funk music! He surprisingly does it well. The jump from this to Sea Change is so enormous and proves his versatile talents as an artist.

This is a niche album really only worth listening to if you are feeling light hearted and silly.

It's still done very well even if his lyrics are even more nonsensical then Odelay! which I thought would be impossible to top in nonsense lyrics

This album is a cacophony of joy. Guitars, horns and, "lobotomy beats", you can hear the influences talking over each other like drunk students solo cups in hand at some epic party. Nicotine and Gravy is a highlight towards the end it is punctuated by a James Brown snare onto a Stevie Wonder clavichord and finally to a transcendental electric sitar. Beck's nonsensical lyrics are off putting to some (hot dogs no doze hot sex in back rows) but perfect for an album which wants to be nothing but fun, almost to the point of parody with its closer Debra. No party mix is complete without one track from this album.

I think the nonsense lyrics start to get a little tiresome towards the end, but still quite a good album.

Incredibly underrated album. Was panned upon release, but time has been kind to this album. It's Beck's Prince album. Highlights are Mixed Bizness and Debra.
