Beck

    One of the biggest genre-hoppers in popular music today, Beck has become a mainstay of alternative music over the last 20years. Like Radiohead, his big break came thanks to one single from an otherwise relatively mediocre album. The release of'Loser' from Mellow Gold immediately created a wave of public interest in a product of the anti-folk movement. However hisnext major label release, Odelay! completely transformed the public's perception of him, with it now being seen as one ofthe most essential albums of the 1990s.

    One of the biggest genre-hoppers in popular music today, Beck has become a mainstay of alternative music over the last 20years. Like Radiohead, his big break came thanks to one single from an otherwise relatively mediocre album. The release of'Loser' from Mellow Gold immediately created a wave of public interest in a product of the anti-folk movement. However hisnext major label release, Odelay! completely transformed the public's perception of him, with it now being seen as one ofthe most essential albums of the 1990s.

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