Beck

One of the biggest genre-hoppers in popular music today, Beck has become a mainstay of alternative music overthe last 20 years. Like Radiohead, his big break came thanks to one single from an otherwise relatively mediocrealbum. The release of"Loser" from "Mellow Gold" immediately created a wave of public interest in a product of theanti-folk movement.

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

"Mutations" and "Midnite Vultures" both were limited critical and commercial successes, although 2002's "SeaChange" saw adramatic turnaround in Beck's musical style, with an album composed entirely of acoustic ballads-utterly different from theeclecticism of "Odelay!". With the release of "Guero" earlier this year, Beck was widelyseen as having gone back to the formulaof "Odelay!", only without quite achieving the same level of criticalacclaim. It remains unclear where he will go on the next stepof his musical progression. « hide
