BECK

Recommended Posts

I bought the beck album from 2017 colors

It is soooo commercial and pop on purpose. And GREAT. I usually bought beck records for total weirdness and drunken bob dylnesque lyrics. Yet this album works....this guys creativity is actually crazy.

Regreting missing Beck this summer. I'll catch him next time around.

 

 

Have you caught any of the "Colors" tour shows? I didn't see any of this year's shows but he rocked the Hollywood Bowl last September on one of the early legs of the tour. "Colors" is a fun album and the shows on this tour reflect that...he's having a blast and it reminds me of the "Odelay", "Midnight Vultures", and "Guero" tours.

The thing about Beck is that he has so many phases and facets to his music...and I love them all. I love the acoustic "Mutations" Beck. I love the lush, orchestral "Sea Change" and "Morning Phase" Beck. I love the funky "Midnight Vultures" Beck. I love the weird, all-genres in a blender "Odelay" Beck.

The guy is ridiculously talented and seemingly ageless.

I am hearing the new beck songs on the radio and noticing that they are still very commercial and pop...like his 2017 album colors. Maybe beck is commenting on todays music industry, while competing with the changing music market. Still, i could hear bruno mars or taylor swift covering becks, colors record. In fact i could see it as a great exercise, for record companies to ask young artists or bands to put their stamp on becks, colors album, to hear what they would do.
