The Information is my favorite, then Sea Change and Guero.

Loser and Devil's Haircut may be crazy awesome, but his best track is Cellphone's Dead.

great, great, great dance tune.

Sea Change is easily in my top 10 albums of all time, and given my mood it can find its way into my top 5.

So yeah. That's obviously my favorite.

Outside of that, ALL his stuff is excellent.

I'd rank the rest like this probably:

Mutations
Midnight Vultures
Guero
Odelay
The Information

...and the rest.

I Beck.

Beck is the man. I can't really say what album is my fave, he has so many different "sides" to him, it depends on my mood.

Sea Change is my fave today, that probably tells you what mood I'm in.

I was a VERY casual listener of Beck. I have "Mellow Gold" and "Odelay!", but I never really got into either.

Then, ok now DON'T LAUGH AT ME!, but this passed Valentine's Day, I was watching the very last episode of "Sex and the City", and HBO did two of those "show retrospectives", and you know how at the end of those retrospectives they always end with a "sad" song (think Green Day's "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" at the end of the Seinfeld retrospective before the final Seinfeld episode). So HBO used "The Golden Age" for the final song in the "Sex and the City" retrospective, and I had never heard it before and I was just BLOWN away!

So I immediately ran out and bought "Sea Change", and it's really good (though "The Golden Age" IMO was the best song on there), so now I'm trying to figure out which Beck to get next.

Beck...what to say. He truly is a genius. One of my 5 favorite artists ever. My love of his music just grows. I love it all.

Album rankings:

1. Midnite Vultures
2. Sea Change
3. Odelay
4. The Information
5. Mellow Gold
6. Guero
7. Mutations
8. Stereopathetic Soul Manure
9. One Foot In The Grave
10. Guerolito

I saw him live last year. It was pretty sweet. A lot of Sea Change was played.

Anything is awesome, but Odelay has the hits.

Beck is fantastic. I like all of his albums to various degrees, but Guero is probably my favourite, simply because I like its variety and the songs are consistently great. I'm still waiting until the stupid JB Hi-Fi drops the price for Information,

I've seen Beck live on the Seachange tour and he was great; even though you could just feel that the audience was restless for him to get done with the slow melancholic stuff and play older funkier songs.

My favorite Beck album is his last good album, Midnite Vultures. He's my favorite artist of the 1990s, for sure, but I hate his (contemporary) so-called music with a burning passion, these days.

Seriously? I'm listening to Odelay right now and I'm trying to figure out what's so great about it

Think I'm with Fitz on this one:

Maybe I should listen to that instead
