BECK (beats Athelete)

Just wanted to make sure the world is aware of the 'mighty good leader' of music, that is, Beck…........

Back in 1993 (USA) his first album 'Golden Feelings' was released. Followed shorthly after by 'A Western Harvest Field By Moonlight'. Next up came 'Stereopathectic SoulManure'.Recorded between '88-'94, this is possibly the most eclectic mix of Beck stuff on one disc. Includes bonus noise on some discs, but not all. 'Mellow Gold' became Beck's first major label album. Made with $200. Includes bonus noise after "Blackhole". Originally titled "Cold Ass Fashion". An awsome acoustic-rock album was to follow 'One Foot in The Grave' is a truely wonderful album with mainly acoustic tracks. Early stuff still but very good indeed….

tracks worth seeking out are:
He's A Mighty Good Leader
Sleeping bag
Hollow Log

One of my favourite albums came next. 'Odelay' was the first Beck album I actually heard. The unusual mix of tracks got me hooked on this strange fellow. His weird and wonderful lyrics still baffle me, but this album is possibly the oddest but one of the best…

best tracks on the album:
Devil's Haircut
High 5
The New Pollution
Where its At

01. Cold Brains
02. Nobody's Fault But My Own
03. Lazy Flies
04. Canceled Check
05. We Live Again
06. Tropicalia
07. Dead Melodies
08. Bottle of Blues
09. O Maria
10. Sing It Again
11. Static
12. Diamond Bollocks (unlisted)
all tracks come highly rated in my book! go get it kids. A fairly chilled out album.

'Midnite Vultures' became a well known album for his track 'Sexx Laws'. If thats the only song that rings a bell kids, then u need to do some more listening. The rest of the album, released in 1999, has more promisiong tracks on i promise. If you're feeling a little odd try nicotine and gravy!
01. Sexx Laws
02. Nicotine & Gravy
03. Mixed Bizness
04. Get Real Paid
05. Hollywood Freaks
06. Peaches & Cream
07. Broken Train
08. Milk & Honey
09. Beautiful Way
10. Pressure Zone
11. Debra

His newst albums are 'Sea Change' and the fairly well known 'Guero' (recently released'. Sea Change wasn't my favourite album and gave me some sceptecicsm about his new album, but so far so good. What i really like about Beck is the diversity in his albums. There's a mix of acoustic-rock to electro-pop, something for all the family! So now you've been informed as to the album history of Beck (actually spelt Bek, but only changed to 'Beck' because no-one could get their heads round 'Bek') Hanson…..go out and do some listening and let mw know your thoughts on one my all time favourite artists. thanks very much x

(p.s. and i dontn care what anyone says….especially u tom, beck IS better than 'Athelete'!!!)
