beck was good when he tried to do his own thing.. he is now a jack of all trades and master of none.. each album has a handful of great momnets but inevitably they fall short of being non dull.. the last great album he made was odelay and that even had a few clangers on it..

beck is grand.. beck is fine, i have no problem with mr hansen being popular and being everywhere, im just not gonna become trendy by liking him (jeez, did i type that on a forum 10 years ago???) .

and anyway... he hasnt had a hit single in a while and that speaks volumes doesnt it......

I'd say the last GREAT album he made was actually MUTATIONS.

I'm hoping that you're not being serious when you say that. Because talking about "hit singles" validating an artist is a little strange on the SY board.

Not when you are talking about somebody who HAS had hit singles. Granted some of the best bands have never seen a chart in their life, but when an artist or group has seen charts, the tops of charts, and multiple times, it can say something about them when they are still putting out albums but nothing is hitting it with the masses anymore.

I KNOW!!!

But since you said it, I was just making a point that came to my head.

While we may be pickier about our music, a lot of people aren't. People will rush out and buy the new Korn cd because THEY ARE AWESOME!! (nr)

So the fact that everybody and their mom had Odeley back in the day (and I mean that literally) and now only his true fans are picking up his music shows that in the majorities opinion, he now sucks. If they didn't think that then they would most likely be buying his cd's more and MTV would jump on the band wagon, make new videos, there would be hit singles, etc, etc, etc.

I'm not saying this is the standard for good or bad music, I'm just saying that if he can't keep the blind masses at Best Buy who buy anything they recognize happy, and he USED to be able to, then something has changed. For the better, or for the worse? I don't know, I guess it depends on his personal reasons for making music. Money: FTL. Creative Expression: FTW?

dude, beck was MASSIVE when odelay came out. like a mega fucking star. he was on the radio all the time, mtv all the time, magazines galore, his music videos were inescapable (but also very good), and he performed at the 97 mtv vmas. he was really big for a while.

Miss Vickie's kettle cooked jalapeno chips are awesome.

And so is Beck's "One Foot In The Grave" album.

I dont think anyone has yet to present a valid argument that can discredit the idea that Beck is a good musician/artist.

cars, first off Miss Vickie's chips rule all the way around.

2nd of all, ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE is definitely one of the best albums ever. Yeah, I said it, what'ya wanna fight about it?

I really don't understand the Beck disses on this forum. It's strange. I feel like this forum in particular has an anti-Beck stance, which seems odd.

I don't, I think a lot of people like Beck. There are just a few people here who make their dislike VERY CLEAR.

Somebody a while back posted a video of Beck, Thurston and someone else (I can't remember who) doing some thing together, it was pretty neat-o.
