Great record, but I wouldn't go so far as to say it's better than Odelay.

I like it a lot better than Mutations.

This was awesome in concert, with The Flaming Lips as his backing band.

Agreed. I've always liked Mutations, but not that much. Maybe it loses something being sandwiched between four awesome records.

There aren't enough smilies in the world.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, but this album is one of the all-time most depressing things I know of. Artists like The Cure and Morrissey / The Smiths have always been labeled as being "depressing", this album makes most of what any of them have done sound like light hearted romps through a field of daisies. That's how depressing this album is. Still good, but yeah. You REALLY have to be in the right mood to make yourself listen to the entire thing.

'Golden Age' is my favorite thing that Beck's done. Fantastic song, fantastic album opener. It does a great job of setting the theme of the entire album. Great imagery, wonderful driving song.

I like it better than Odelay. But I have a dark soul and I have a dark cloud hovering over my head and breakups make me sad.

I haven't listened to this album but I'm sure I know some songs from it if they were on the radio and what-not. What were the singles off of this album?

And the text I quoted is interesting to me and reminded me of something. I'm really the only one out of my group of friends that likes Radiohead. When I make them listen to Ok Computer they label it "depressing"...

Radiohead are known as "that depressing band" amongst all my dumbass friends, it's weird. Has anyone else heard or seen of Radiohead labeled that way?

The biggest hit was Lost Cause. I think Guess I'm Doing Fine got some airplay too, but I'm not sure.

My favorite track on this album is End Of The Day, actually.

Edited for being repetitive:

GAF, I hear a lot of bands labeled as being "depressing" or "sad" that I don't agree with. The two I previously mentioned (The Cure and The Smiths) are two that I think the label is completely unfair, inaccurate, and doesn't do either band any justice. I don't see Radiohead as being remotely depressing, whatev.

Your friends are likely drunk, and alcohol is a depressive.

Radiohead, to me, for me, is not at all depressing music.

Sea Change, though, is a pretty fucking depressing album. Give it a listen, all the way through.

It is indeed an amazing album. And one I can rarely listen to the entire way through unless I'm just really depressed.

I don't consider the Smiths all that depressing either. For every I Know It's Over, there's a catchy track like This Charming Man or Cemetry Gates, or something lyrically frivolous like Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others.

I think I will give it a listen. I need to get around to listening to some more Beck, as right now I pretty much think of him as the goofy dude who wrote 'Loser' and 'Where It's At.'

And that song about giving God a haircut. Or was it the Devil? I don't remember.

"There is no design for life, there's no devil's haircut in my mind, there is not a wonderwall to climb or step around."
