Our Review

Is it part of his perversity, his innate weirdness, or a pure accident of nature that where most artists make an emotional connection with their fans and their music, Beck creates an electrifying distance? Beck’s brilliance has been his ability to juxtapose grooves, to find new avenues for dead-end genres and to make it seem as if wherever he’s at is the place to be. He comes off more the DJ orchestrating the party than the singular author writing and performing the songs. In a sense, the man is tooeclectic to be pinned down. He continues to wrestle himself out of every potential headlock with The Information, an album he started with Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich before he reunited with the Dust Brothers for 2005’s Guero. Finally completed, it’s another kaleidoscopic ride. “Strange Apparition” sounds like the Rolling Stones’ “Torn and Frayed” given an injection of crystal meth. “Soldier Jane” percolates with an uneasy tension guiding its extra-terrestrial prog rock synths and hip-hop beats. “Dark Star” sounds like a mix of ‘70s Philly Soul, early ‘80s video-game breakdance ambience and some rustic delta blues harmonica tossed in for good humor and measure.

Customer Reviews

OH MAN! (5 stars)
I know that there's a lot of love out their for Guero, Sea Change, and Midnight Vutures, but this CD gives us a reason to put all those albums behind us. Those CDs where ok; Im not gonna debate their quality, but the bottom line is that they showed nowhere near the genius and musicianship that Odelay and Mutations did. The Information show a new, in command Beck ready to push his signature sound to new heights. The Information reminds me of

Beck Returns With Some Head Candy (5 stars)
If you are a fan of any of Beck's previous releases, you are in for a real treat. This album contains tracks that borrow wonderfully from Beck's other releases. There are many highlights here. The first 6 tracks are so well done. Elevator Music, Think I'm In Love, Cellphone's Dead, Strange Apparition, Soldier Jane, Nausea, The Information, and Movie Theme are true Beck classics. Movie Theme in particular has an ambient smoothness to it that

Guerolito-lito? (3 stars)
Typically with Beck, he morphs and grows on every album. Ever since he released Mellow Gold, he's been throwing listeners curveball after curveball with every disc he puts out. Honestly, was anyone really expecting the etherial song cycle of Sea Change following the electro funk of Midnite Vultures? Anyway, fairly fast on the heels of Guero comes The Information. Apparently, if my information is correct, Beck's been working on this, off a

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Initially pegged as something as a voice of a generation when “Loser” turned into a smash crossover success, Beck did wind up crystallizing much of the post-modern ruckus of the ‘90s alternative explosion, but in unexpected ways. Based in the underground anti-folk and noise-rock worlds, Beck encompassed all manners of modern music, drawing in hip-hop, blues, trash-rock, pop, soul, lounge music…pretty much any found sound or vinyl dug up from a dusty crate, blurring boundaries and encapsulating how...
