    After hearing it live TWICE, woogie. I have to agree with you 100%. What a party!!!

    easily NOT Odelay!

    Midnite Vultures is wildy hailed (by me mostly) as his sextacy album

    Sea Change is universally agreed upon as fucking beautiful in every sense

    Guero was his apparant return to form, but hated on my a good amount of people (hmm...)

    The Information is a good but not fucking awesome album (great songs but as a whole, it lacks a bit)

    which leads me to Mutations, it had the displeasure of being the album AFTER Odelay!, and seems to be overlooked by many, he went a totally different route than from what he did with Odelay! but the album is quite a delight to listen to, and c'mon, it gave us Tropicalia!

    I give Guero a solid second only because I think it's pure genius and I believe he's trying to tell a story with those songs (just look at the titles of the last 4or so songs)

    so what do you guys think?

    p.s.- I intentionally did not include steropathetic soulmanure, one foot in the grave or that other one whose name slips me
    Guero is fucking brilliant and my fav album. Hated? By who?

    Did Moby review it?

    I voted Mutations because I don't think Sea Change has been underrated

    Who are the retards voting for Sea Change?

    It was his FIRST Top 10 album. 5 stars from Rolling Stone and 2nd in the pop critics poll for 2002. It was nominated for a grammy for best alternative music album.

    Oh wait, let me guess it's becaues Pitchfork didn't fall in love with it....

    Actually Pitchfork fucking loves it (er, so I've heard).
    So . . . yeah. Some people are just kinda out of the loop.

    Midnite Vultures is definitely my favorite Beck album, and by far the most underrated.
