I thought so. I'm not sure what that says about me.

Odelay, homes, there would be a sea change in my opinion of you.

I've heard Odelay, just don't own it. Probably been since the '90s since i heard it as well. I'm old.

Modern Guilt wasn't super acclaimed, but I love it. It has a very distinct sound, and the production is impeccable.

Slant did a list of Beck's greatest songs and it was pretty much all derived from Mellow Gold, Odelay, Sea Change and Midnite Vultures. I'd say those first three are his unquestionable high points and Midnite Vultures could have been one of his best, but is weighed down by some mediocre material.

Never really could get into Mutations at all though.

As for this new record, it's pretty shitty...

As in, shitty if you require every album in your collection to be a perfect 10. I give it a 9 and I think a lot of the material is on par with Sea Change. Boom.

I have Sea Change and Modern Guilt.

Looking forward to hearing this; I just ordered it (along with St Vincent and Neil Finn).

I blind ordered St. Vincent (haven't unwrapped it yet) along with the Angel Olsen LP (and have preorders for Cloud Nothings and War on Drugs)...sometimes you can get a pretty good feeling that an album will be strong just from listening to a track or based on an artist's recent reputation.

I'm surprised it's from TNG, it looks about on par with the high production values of TOS.

Chemtrails may be my favourite song by him.
