Beck is OK. I think he is overhyped and in many respects he is as much a rehash artist as Lenny Kravitz. Both put on great shows. Both "rock". Both bore me.

Rob Instigator 06.28.2006 03:15 PM

folk, hip hop

yeah

lenny rehashes
funk, soul

rehashes are DULL

Cool. When I first bought Guero I really liked it, but looking back on it now I think it kind of sucks (well, it's ok...it has it's moments). The last album of his that I really loved was Midnite Vultures. Sea Change was good, but to me it seemed like the same song over and over again. But seriously, this scientology stuff with Beck really makes me scratch my head.

Idiot. Beck isn't rehashing shit. You don't think any of the terrible music you listen to is rehashed? Think again.

i like beck and respect him, but he is not by any means "original".


listen to early ween(pure guava-era) and you'll know exactly where beck got his inspiration, influence, and possibly ideas from.

case closed.

Beck is not doing this. He isn't 'original' but he is surely not ripping others off completely.

I still need to pick up Guerolito.....I'm still a Beck completist even though he has kind of let me down a little lately. Is it Guerolito streaming in on beck.com?....well parts of it.

I have all of his albums. The Loser EP is also very neat.

bytheriver 06.28.2006 03:49 PM

erm, I've heard of people ripping off Beck but Ive never heard him being accused of ripping people off (except for Guero and the person he sounded like was his own earlier stuff) Im not saying he's absolutely unique but he's pretty original. All thats by the by though cause his songs are great his lyrics really good, his live show is fucking fantastic and even him being a scientologist doesn't making him any less cool.

He ripped off Ween.

Not blatantly. I can see similarities and influences. Tons of shitty music you listen to is rehashed I'm sure.

Idiot.

I LOVE how you skip posts that totally put you in your place(AssBlaster's) and say some total bullshit.

You are rehashing your own old/wrong ideas.

Also at the same time that ween was recording the pod, beck was playing his off beat style of folk in the Los Angeles area. When Loser broke on commercial radio (accidentally), Ween had just released Pure Guava. Beck's earliest efforts were the ones that sounded the most ween-like. I don't even think ween would ever think (much less say) that they thought that Beck ripped them off (unless they were joking).

But really, Ween and Beck don't sound much alike.


Ween's "Pure Guava" release date: 1992
Beck's "Mellow Gold" release date: 1994

FUNNY!(better hit that *edit* button;)

HaydenAsche 06.28.2006 04:22 PM

Pure Guava: November 10, 1992
Mellow Gold: March 1, 1994

Beck sure is fast at ripping someone off. He was probably already writing songs for Mellow Gold before Pure Guava came out and THEY DON'T EVEN SOUND THE SAME.

Why? Because you read my post and replied to AssBlaster's post 5 minutes later? I don't think so.
