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

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
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
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.
