Beck

Yes, Beck has a new album. If you like Guero and The Information this is apparently a continuation of the themes he's used for awhile. Its a solid album and Danger Mouse is a competent producer but since Sea Change Beck has mellowed out considerably. The things that I have always loved about him are strangely absent. There is still some absurd and surreal lyrics but the playfulness is gone. Beck has become a serious individual. There are some really good standout tracks like the opening track "Orphans", "Gamma Ray", "Modern Guilt" and "Walls". A lot of the album is sad and has an ethereal quality which I would compare to the slower Gnarls Barkley tracks. If you are depressed in any way I would suggest NOT listening to this album. There are heavy themes of death which pervade the entire record. I would suggest Modern Guilt to only the hardcore fans of the post Sea Change Beck albums.

Re: Beck - Modern Guilt

Almost emo. No whining or anything...its still fairly surrealistic.

Never once did that cross my mind as emo... so I don't suspect anything he has done now is really all that emo.

Re: Beck - Modern Guilt

That was irony. He was all about the irony and deadpan back then.

Re: Beck - Modern Guilt

Exactly. I don't expect that guy to turn emo on us at any point in time.

Re: Beck - Modern Guilt

Agreed, although the scientology thing has begun to bug me. Its creeping into his lyrics.

Re: Beck - Modern Guilt

Me too..I just try to forget when I listen to his albums. At least he was raised a scientologist.
