Homogenic is a good candidate for my favorite album of all time. Shit, there's just nothing like it.

Laz makes a fair case for Debut and I don't really disagree. It's just I prefer all her other solo albums, though it's still unfair to label it "worst" like a pejorative. I actually get quite a lot of enjoyment out of listening to Medulla.

It's Beck's first release, originally cassette-only before being reissued on CD in 1999 to Beck's displeasure. It's really damn bad, although Heartland Feeling and Totally Confused are favorites of mine.

Wow, 97 bucks for a used copy on Amazon.

I'd only pay 97 cents for it, but only 2,000 CD copies exist. Beck was so pissed off about anyone hearing it that Sony immediately ceased production.

It's all over the internet though, if you ever want to hear it. I've listened to it a couple times for laughs.

I have a hard time choosing between Post and Homogenic as best. And agree with laz about Medulla and Debut.

I'd choose Post over Homogenic, but NOTHING beats Bachelorette.

Nothing.

Post has Hyperballad, but Homogenic has a football in the groin. And All Is Full of Love.

The rice was all rancid and the beans were so hard
I was gettin' kinda dizzy eatin' all the lard
There was aphids on the lettuce an' I ate every one
An' after I was done the salsa melted off my tongue
Pieces of tortilla got stuck in my throat
An' the stains on my clothes burned a hole through my coat

My stomach was a-tremblin' and I broke out in a rash
I was so dry and thirsty and I didn't have no cash
So I went and found a hose, tore off all my clothes
Turned on the water and it shot right up my nose
Some old lady came along and she thought I was a freak
So she beat me with a handbag till I could hardly speak
I was lying there naked, my body badly bruised
In a pool of my own blood, unconscious and confused

Well, the cops came and got me and threw me in their van
And I woke up on the ceiling and I couldn't find my hand
They took me to the judge, his eyes a-glowin' red
The courtroom was filled with witches and the dead
Well, the sheriff was a hellhound with fangs and claws
The prisoners were tied up and chained to the walls
The air was gettin' thick; the smoke was gettin' thicker
The judge read the verdict: said, "Cut off his head!"

Well, they placed me on the altar, and they raised up the axe
My head was about to explode when I noticed the Marshall stacks
I noticed all the smoke machines, cameras and the lights
Some guy with a microphone, runnin' around dancin' in tights
And I noticed the crew and the band playin' down below
And I realized I was in a rock video

So I went and joined the band and I went out on tour
And I smoked a lot of heroin and I passed out in manure
I made out with the groupies, started fires backstage
I made a lot of money and I gave it all away
Well, the band got killed, so I started a solo career
And I won all the awards and I drank all the beer
I opened up a taco stand just to smell the smell
Cookin' with the devil; frying down in hell
I thought you had made this up until I watched a video on YouTube. This song is awesome.

I think you meant to post this in the Random TV thread?

I watch a lot of crap TV, but I won't even stoop that low.

Oh, I have a few. But none of them positive, and it does ask for a best album...
