He's been on covers.
I felt like a monster reincarnation of Horatio Alger......a man on the move and just sick enough to be totally confident.

I like Beck. Only heard a handful of songs from his albums but they seem pretty good. Loser, Devil's Haircut and Epro are probably his best.

I have his Mutations and Guero albums... both pretty darn good IMO, I'll probably buy some more sometime when I can be bothered
Beck is gorgeous though. Like hot as hell.

Beck is one of those that I can listen to, but I've never been able to get in to his stuff that much. I've never understood all the hype.

E-Pro is great.

Beck rocks. He hasn't made a bad album yet. My favorites are Midnite Vultures and Sea Change.

He's not a particularly great guitarist though... he gets the job done but it's never the guitar that impresses me. What impresses me are things like the colossal arrangements on Midnite Vultures or the simplicity of something as corny as "nanananana" or "doodoodoo" for a chorus working so well. But mostly, i'm impressed by his ability to make a unique and excentric mashup of genres, which is still accessible, dancable and catchy.

haha, I can't get over your sig.

yeah actually Beck has expressed frustration in the past over his own guitar playing and once even said he would like to improve his lead guitar skills. I usually don't even think of his guitar playing though.

I picked up Guerolito the other day. The original pwnzors it, but I think some of the remixes are pretty badass. It's kindof hit-or-miss, though.

I know I've already psoted in here but oh well.

I watched the futurama episode with Beck in t'other day, seen as my brother bought the entire dvd box set :/ but yeah man is that episode the best. Anyone seen? It's the one where Bender gets broken and he and Beck team up to put on Bend-Aid

I swear, the Zylon & Garfunkel bit on stage is the funniest thing since... ever.

new cd in september

Awesome. It says on his website that it's finished and that he worked with Nigel Godrich, who also produced Sea Change, and i believe Mutations as well (not sure about that one). That combination has certainly worked before. So i'm guessing we can expect something mostly accoustic. Not surprising, not long ago he had a whole series of Nick Drake covers on his site.

Sea Change is one of my favourite albums of all time. It's a masterpiece. I don't really like his other stuff though, which is weird.

That episode's great.

Beck: Congratulations my friend.
Bender: Why, because I can make annoying noises?
Beck: Exactly. I use them all the time in my music.

Here, did Beck write that song "Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime"?

Because I cannot, for the life of me, think of anybody else who played it.

Beck's awesome. He makes the only modern hip hop songs that I like to listen to, and his more rock oriented songs are killer.

I have Guero, Mellow Gold, Odelay! and Midnite Vultures. I never really thought of Beck as much of a guitarist to be honest, like he's obviously competent, but most of his **** isn't really guitar driven.
