I think this is a good album. I can feel a continuous vibe all the way through, and that's a good thing. The production is brilliant and sets the mood on the entire album. The problem, for me, is that I don't really care for most of the songs. The only one that stands out would be "Replica". Apart from that song, there's not much that gets me in Beck's voice or in his lyrics.

Don't get me wrong, I still think this is a good album that deserves to be heard, but it just ain't something that moves me. It's probably just a question of taste. I still respect this album as a piece of art.

There are acoustic versions of all the songs. Track them down--they are amazing.

I personally believe this album is not only underrated in terms of Beck's discography but underrated in general too. Each track is as solid as the last, the hooks are catchy and I found myself enjoying myself all the way through this album. It just has such a nice, solid, reflective vibe running through the whole thing. It's the slight experimentations that make this record, little out of the blue things that make this album a true gem in my eyes. The only flaw I can put my finger on with this album is that it can get a little too "folky" at times. Yet, Beck's talent and musicianship really shines on this record and it is definitely one of all time favourites.

Beck's lyrics may have gone downhill since the Information. Danger Mouse's production leaves much to be desired.
"Replica" is still a great track.

A bounce-back from The Information. Beck sounds like he's maturing and becoming a little reflective. I like where he's headed.

A short, straightforward album. It's an okay album but I don't think I listened to it very many times. It doesn't have much to keep you coming back. I wonder when we'll get another album from him.
