    ABOUT GOD DAM TIME!!!!! Huge Beck fan, this had made my year!!!! Thanks Beck!
    What a great surprise. Loved Sea Change, but this is sounding even better so far.

    Great album cover, blue moon is nice. Looking forward to this since I consider Seachange to be his best album.
    I can't stop listening to "Blue Moon". Looking forward to the album so much. On a related note, Beck looks like a Game of Thrones character in that thumbnail.

    Sounds like a real return to form! After Modern Guilt and Songreader, I was afraid he was past his prime, but these songs sound really great. I loved Sea Change, and I think I'll love this album too.
    After 12 years we are finally getting the companion to Sea Change. I am so excited for this!! Sea Change is a great album and to get a sequel is even better!!
    I'm a huge Beck fan, but I don't get everyone's obsession with Sea Change. That album was so bad I gave it away. Give me a companion to Vultures.
    It can be depressing, he had his heart ripped out and stomped on. I think, "Guess I'm Doing Fine" is one of his finest pieces.
    Oh go away, everyone stopped caring about you after that Grunge worship track back in the 90's.
    Bloody fantastic Album. Shades of Neil Young, Simon and Garfunkel etc. Great songs and fantastic tones from the guitars.
