Sea Change is my favorite, with Guero and The Information close behind.

I got to see him on the Information tour in Nashville last fall at a 1500-capacity club.

Here it is..i have found what iVe been looking for.
Here it is:
"Press my face up to the window
To see how warm it is inside
See the things that I’ve been missing
Missing all this time

It’s only lies that I’m living
It’s only tears that I’m crying
It’s only you that I’m losing
Guess I’m doing fine

Just curios which album is that

Your sorry eyes, they cut through bone.
They make it hard to leave you alone.
Leave you here wearing your wounds
Waving your guns at somebody new.

Baby you're lost
Baby you're lost
Baby you're a lost cause.

There's too many people you used to know
They see you coming, they see you go.
They know your secrets, and you know theirs
This town is crazy, but nobody cares.

Baby you're lost
Baby you're lost
Baby you're a lost cause.

I'm tired of fightin'
I'm tired of fightin'
Fighting for a lost cause

There's a place where you are going
You ain't never been before
There's no one laughing at your back now
No one standing at your door
Is that what you thought love was for?


It is a Sea change Love it love it love it

Both of the lyrics you posted are from Sea Change, Beck's "Breakup album". A personal favorite of mine as well.

I agree. Sea Change is good but I never listen to it. Too melancholy...and I say that as someone who isn't exactly a wuss when it comes to melancholy, nor am I insistent that Beck must be fun. I just kind of got bored with it after a dozen or so listens. I still want to see him live, though. Had a 3rd row ticket last year but couldn't go.

I couldn't find a more recent Beck thread - how is that possible?

Anyway what is wrong with The Beck?

I saw him last night and while the music was fantastic, the energy from Beck and the band, and I use the word "energy" lightly, was basically nonexistent. Is Beck always like that? I mean, it was the most lifeless bunch of people I've ever seen. He didn't dance, he didn't smile once, he was just going through the motions. He looked completely bored with himself. Does the band just "play" over precorded music like a Moby show or what (if so, at least Moby can work a crowd)? I couldn't make sense of this explosion of sound juxtaposed with these lazy ass looking detached people. Waitresses have asked me if I wanted fries with that with more enthusiasm. I was pretty bummed out by the whole experience. Even Beck's body language - the long hair in his face, the hat, the baggy clothes the eyes always looking down - seemed like he wanted to disappear. When he sang "Loser" it wasn't even ironic - it was more like, yeah, just shoot him, they shoot horses don't they? Everything about it was hollow and empty and completely passionless. Yet I loved the songs.

Funny how I was so lukewarm on Sea Change when last night they were the only moments that seemed real. I actually almost left - I have a big meeting this morning and figured it was more fun to listen to Beck in the car - but I'm glad I stayed. He closed with E-Pro which did kind of bring the house down. The audience was as worshipful and receptive as any I've ever seen in NM. So maybe it was all just me.

By the end of the show I wanted to print up a "Save Beck" t-shirt.

Maybe he just needs some couch time with Tom Cruise?

He opened with this. I think it's cool when an artist is touring to promote a record and they open with an old hit. He did pour out the hits.

Maybe I'm just too old for two turntables and a microphone.
