Beck Albums Ranked

Still haven't gotten my copy of Song Reader, but I'm sure it'll be good. List rgoes from worst to best.
Midnite Vultures

When I first listened to this album, I HATED it with such a passion. This was probably cause I hated 70's disco music, and hearing Beck dive head-first into the genre wasn't very pleasing. But just like he softened me up to country music, he softened me up to disco. This is still my least favorite, though. I can't listen to it all the way through, and it still baffles me. I mean, why would you do a whole album full of DISCO?!

I dislike this one for the same reason, it's a whole album full of BALLADS. I love OFITG and Sea Change, but Mutations just wasn't as interesting or heartfelt as those two. Not to say there aren't some FANTASTIC songs on here, though. Canceled Check is one of my favorites, and Sing It Again is just downright BEAUTIFUL.
Stereopathetic Soulmanure

Now, this one, on the other hand, it the EASIEST of Beck's albums to listen to all the way through, because it's so interesting. Unfortunately, it's just so inconsistent that I can't place it any further up on the list.
The Information

I was never really a huge fan of this one. It just seemed kinda boring for some reason. I've softened up to it, though, and I do think it's kinda underrated. 1000 BPM is my JAM.

My introduction to Beck. This is a really good album to have as your first, because it combines the electronica of his post-Sea change albums, the alt-hip-hop of Odelay, and he even throws in a touch of anti-folk. Surprised more people don't like this album.
One Foot in the Grave

This is an album that I had NO expectations for, and it just blew me away. Songs like Cyanide Breath Mint and Hollow Log are the perfect examples of Beck's DIY attitude and lo-fi charm.
Modern Guilt

WHY IS THIS ALBUM SO UNDERRATED?! Maybe it's cause of the short length, but this is just such a great album! Beck and Danger Mouse combine their powers to create a rock-electronic hybrid, and all the songs sound fresh and consistently good.
Sea Change

This is a tough one to rank, because (like most Beck albums) it's just one type of music. I rank it based on the sum of its parts. All of these songs are some of the best ballads that Beck has ever written, period. The Golden Age is heart-wrenchingy beautiful.
Mellow Gold

I see this album as two half-albums. One half is a rock/hip-hop album, and the other half is straight folk. Despite (or perhaps because of) the bipolarity of it, this is straight-up classic that EVERYONE should have in their collection. Be warned: you will not like it on the first listen.

If Mellow Gold is a classic, than this one is a... I don't even know what! This should be owned by MORE than everyone! Mellow Gold was hip-hop and folk in the same album, while Odelay is both in the same SONG, along with about 5 other genres to go with it. You will NEVER get tired of this album, and DEFINITELY get the Deluxe edition.
