When my last girlfreind broke up with me, the first thing I thought about was Sea Change.
I was going to vote OFITG or Steriopathic. cause I love those equally

Of the five I've heard, (MG, Odelay, Sea Change, Guero, The Info.) it's gotta be MG. I hated Guero, save for like, 3 songs...

I wanna hear the early ones...

FUCK YEAH!! Good to know that other people know Mellow Fucking Gold is the best, hands down. One of the best albums of the 90's. My 2nd favorite is Stereopathetic Soul Manure

YEaaa, guero unfortunately sucked, save 2 songs in my opinion. The Information has more good ones but lots of them are boring gueroish songs. The Information is excellent though.

Yea, Mellow gold- it think it shows his range the best, meaning there's a lot fo silliness and raplike songs, but alos some acoustic (tho augmented) songs. My second would probably be stereopathetic, then maybe odelay or grave.


Information sucks. It's the only beck album i can call bad.

why do people not like guero i thought it wasnt bad, its nice for just putting in the car for a long trip and listening to. I must admit i do skip quite a few of the songs to hear preferred ones, but i can still listen to the album and not be bothered.

I liked odelay, but i was going through a shitty time when i bought that cd and it listend to it lots so it just brings those memories back.

I'm surprised how well Mellow Gold is doing. I never got into but I've listened to it a few times. The info and Mutations are probably my favorite with midnight vultures close behind.
It's a shame that guero was so much bigger than the info because Guero except for a few songs wasn't so hot.

I haven't got a favourite. Mellowgold and Guero would be the two albums that I play the most. But Beck is one of them artists to me, who has a couple of great songs on each album, but with the rest being filler I don't care a great deal to listen to. He's talent overall though.

Dennis Lyxen would give him a run for his money, and most likely leave Beck broke.

Go it Alone,Farewell ride, Hell Yes, andQue' Onda Guero. A few others were ok but the album gets boring during the mid section to me.
