Maybe it'll grow on me...but for now it's very *meh* (and this is coming from someone who didn't think Make Believe was as bad as everyone made it out to be.)

Some may beg to differ, but this one is definitely one of my favorites.

agreed. It was one of those albums that can be greeted with almost complete indifference... I'mn ot sure what went wrong on that album but something wasn't clicking.

Trying to re-assess this album. One of my friends told me it was genius if you listened to it properly but I can't really get past it. I know 'I Think I'm In Love' and 'No Complaints' are really good pop songs and '1000BPM' makes me want to dance all over the place, but I still feel like something is missing. Is it the lack of real artwork? It just makes it feel like a CD Beck burned for me instead of a real record.

I haven't liked any Beck album all the way through since Mellow Gold, One Foot, Stereopathic, and Odelay. All the others just have a few good songs.

Those were a classic 4 albums. I think his problem is that he's been trying to reinvent himself and distance himself from those days too much- he doesn't want to be labelled a one-trick pony, but I don't think he knows what else to do really.

I really loved Mutations and I thought Midnite Vultures was funky and hilarious. Unfortunately he went all James Blunt with Sea Change. Guero and The Information have great songs but I don't feel his personality coming through as much as it did in his early days. It's all a little too generic.

I'm still buying Modern Guilt because the title track sounds good.
