Long Out of Print Vinyl Reissue
Since introducing himself to the world in 1994 with his genre-defying, multi-platinum debut, Beck has blazed a path into the future while simultaneously foraging through the past. Throughout his singular career he has utilized all manners and eras of music, blurring boundaries and shattering expectations with each album.
Beck's Grammy-nominated 2008 release Modern Guilt marked both a spiritual crisis and a creative rebirth for the cosmic chameleon. Co-produced by the always-in-demand Danger Mouse, it's chock full of off-kilter rhythms and left-field breakdowns, with an overall 1960s British vibe and vocals that float over the music as if the idiosyncratic singer/songwriter is singing in the next room.
Beck's shortest studio effort to date is anchored by the epic, "Chemtrails," a genre-bending tour de force that showcases Beck and Danger Mouse's shared affection for late-60s psych-pop and also features a guest appearance by Cat Power on "Walls." As is always the case with any Beck record, he keeps things musically interesting and fresh while constantly challenging any and all categorization along the way.
