Beck

One of the biggest genre-hoppers in popular music today, Beck has become a mainstay of alternative music over the last20years.

One of the biggest genre-hoppers in popular music today, Beck has become a mainstay of alternative music over the last20years. Like Radiohead, his big break came thanks to one single from an otherwise relatively mediocre album. The releaseof'Loser' from Mellow Gold immediately created a wave of public interest in a product of the anti-folk movement. Howeverhisnext major label release, Odelay! completely transformed the public's perception of him, with it now being seen as oneofthe most essential albums of the 1990s.

Mutations and Midnite Vultures both were limited critical and commercial successes, although 2002's SeaChangesaw a dramatic turnaround in Beck's musical style, with an album composed entirely of acoustic ballads-utterlydifferent from theeclecticism of Odelay!. With the release of Guero earlier this year, Beck was widely seen as havinggone back to theformula of Odelay!, only without quite achieving the same level of critical acclaim. It remains unclearwhere he will go onthe next step of his musical progression. « hide
