Beck does Hank Williams x2. An oft overlooked aspect of this guy's vast musical repertoire is what a great singer he is -- he harnesses it differently for different purposes, but on these tunes he's got some serious pipes in the traditional sense.

I've never heard it. I understand it is an album of remixes from the "Guero" album. I'm not much of a "remix" guy, so I'll need some sellin'.

Snap! In for a top 5?

The Last Time
Storm Coming
Who's Gonna Save My Soul
Run (I'm a Natural Disaster)
St. Elsewhere

Holy crap, these are great albums.

And totally different top fives!

Just a Thought
Going On
Smiley Faces
Charity Case
Feng Shui

These guys really caught the muse for a few years there.


Aw man, I love all of those too. Not a bad track in the bunch really. What do you think -- slight nod to the first album?

I was just wondering the same thing. I used to give the nod to the second album, but now that it's been a while (© Staind) I'd have to go with the first one. A little more memorable front to back.


Apparently another album is a distinct if not imminent possibility:

He went on to say that he and CeeLo last saw each other on November 7, 2016, and were planing to get together again on Election Day, but after “drinking heavily on a couch by [himself] staring at the TV at that time,” the plans never came to fruition.

It's a good thing CeeLo wasn't around. You never know what he might put in someone's drink.

Quote:
Beck has set a release date for spring for his forthcoming new album.

Following the release of recent singles ‘Wow‘, ‘Dreams‘ and his song for the FIFA soundtrack ‘Up All Night‘, fans have been eagerly awaiting news on his 10th album and the follow-up to the GRAMMY-winning ‘Morning Phase‘ for some time.

Originally pencilled for release in summer 2015, it was then pushed back to a November 2016 release which never materialised.

Now, it has been revealed that the LP will be released this spring in a new interview with The New York Times’ T Magazine.

The album features 10 songs which according to Beck are “simple and uplifting and galvanising, where the spirit moves you, that kind of feeling. Those are the hardest. This new record I focused on that feeling. It’s the easiest to fail at. Or to come off on one hand disingenuous, or on the other hand just trite, or, you know, there’s that fine line between platitude and just the truth. And that fine line between making a big commotion and a bunch of movement and just actual unadulterated joy.”


Beck's Backspacer!! BECKSPACER!!

On paper it sounds great. But of the two singles he released, I'd give one an A and one an F.

The 8-bit EP was pretty good, I thought.

I really didn't care for either of the two songs.

Which one do you guys give an A and a F to?

I'd probably put both in the C- category at best.

I thought WOW was great, that other song was embarrassing.
