Until Morning Phase was released, I'd always been able to compartmentalize Beck's involvement in Scientology from his music. Although this album shares a lot of sonic characteristics with Sea Change, which might be both Beck's best album and his mellowest, it begins to show the signs of adult-contemporary mediocrity that I've always associated with celebrities who turn to Scientology. (I realize Beck was raised in that tradition, but I'd never previously seen signs of it in his music.) Perhaps, though, I'm wrongly attributing the boring aspects of this album to Beck's religion when the real reasons are age, celebrity, and/or artistic lack of inspiration. Either way, this is far from terrible--just merely competent.

As a fan of both artists, I really do hope you find a place in your heart for Beck. It's nearly impossible to compare any live act to U2. My favorite albums are Sea Change (it's a breakup album... real downer, but love it), and then Guero. Midnight Vultures is pretty solid for a party down in funk town, if your into that kind of thing.

From djmojo21
I have never ever liked Beck, even though I have desperately tried through the decades since I was a teen. I even saw them live recently: they opened the Kaufmann Football Stadium in Kansas City for U2 on the Joshua Tree Tour.

I found his/their live stage performance to be extremely underwhelming both emotively through their body language and facial expressions (pretty easy to see when their close-ups are on gigantic screens), and their live music was much to my dismay the same: terribly underwhelming.

I just found this website TONIGHT and I'm thrilled about it and all of the great, insightful, and thoughtful members of this site. So, I'm going to listen to what many of you are saying that this is a quite different Beck, a new experience for him as an artist and human being as well as one for the fan and listener.

I'm looking forward to listening to this album next up on Spotify.

Cheers All!

Severely underrated on this site imo. One of my favorite Beck albums.

The first track, I could have sworn I had before on the Sea Change album. There are some very good moments and sure he had some back problems, but this generally sounds too much like Sea Change. Thank goodness, he brought out Colors.

The first few listens I really thought it boring, and I consider myself a Beck fan.

I was really warn out one day (today), so I wasn't in the mood for a bombastic album. This totally hit the spot and I somehow came to appreciate the mellowness of the album, yet still adventurous.
