This is pretty easily my favorite Beck album, and though I haven't plunged into Midnite Vultures or Mutations, I would be shocked if either overtook this gem. From start to finish, Beck unleashes every bit of his diverse influences on us and while everyone may know 'Hell Yes,' 'Girl' and 'E-Pro,' every track on this album is phenomenal and if you haven't listened to this one all the way through, you should -- right now
This album singlehandedly got my through a week of studying through finals. Surprisingly, I hadn't listened to any other Beck album when I picked this one up, but I was incredibly impressed with all aspects of the music - the lyrics, the songwriting, the combination of driving guitar riffs and techo samples. The music may be electronic, but it certainly isn't lifeless - songs like 'E-Pro', 'Rental Car', and 'Go It Alone' are fantastic altrock songs in their own right.
