    That's when he was on the line-up, but he's played since then.

    The 2004 show was excellent, but he really needs to do a full-production show. In 2004 he did the Gobi, it was very loose (he covered Big Star and used a Gameboy as an instrument) and it was decidedly low-key. I'd love to see him debut a new, nutsoid production-based show and get back to the Crazy Beck we all know and love.

    Beck's performance at the Treasure Island Music Festival was one of his best ever. He sang '"Debra" and did a MJ moonwalk. Definitely on his game that night.

    Debra?!?! That's so awesome. The few times i've seen him people have always requested it but he never plays it...

    He did it at the Echo last time I saw him there and it was excellent. And Sexx Laws!

    I've never been a setlist elitist, but I would GAH! if he played Debra at a show I watched. It's a modern classic in a world of people who have never heard it.

    When I saw him on the Midnite Vultures tour and he performed "Debra," he humped the floor and told an audience member that her bra would be starched, cleaned, and available for her to pick up at the end of the show after she threw it onstage. No bed descending from the rafters at this show, though.

    I've only seen him once, it was at Outside Lands in 2012 and I was less than impressed. I'm a pretty big fan and he was my most anticipated set of the weekend, pretty disappointing set and maybe I'm crazy but he seemed bored as hell.

    Really would love to see him in 2014 for some redemption.

    Seen him a couple times and OSL2012 was the worst. Mediocre performance, crowd not into it...

    to be fair, his health has played a part in his recent shows, but yes, the OSL show was very very basic. the night show at Bimbos however, was great.

    I liked, but didn't love the OSL set. The Neil Young cover kind of melted my icy heart. I thought 2012 set was better than the one in 2007 at OSL. Better sound, looser performance, better stage for him.

    2012 OSL was the first (and only) I've seen him, and that performance was unfortunately lackluster.

    This. Can't believe we may actually get a Beck LP that is deserving of being referred to as a follow-up to Sea Change.

    Let's decide this once and for all.

    Saying Morning Phase and Sea Change are the same album or that MP is a remake or whatever is about the most surface-level analysis possible. I did think the same thing at first, I mean the opening track sounds a LOT like Golden Age. But from there on, aside from the fact that it's a similarly laidback album it's not really the same at all. This is a much more positive and hopeful sounding record - lots of major chords and warm feelings as opposed to the minor, depressing feeling of SC. Just a really different tone overall. And this sounds like Beck used a full band for a lot of it - most of the songs on SC either had some kind of slight instrumentation or were just Beck and his guitar. I haven't given it enough spins to notice any similarities or differences lyrically yet, but when I hear people saying it's the same record it really makes me scratch my head.

    To me, it sounds like Sea Change. The cover looks like Sea Change. The first word about the album back in October was this:

    The album features many of the same musicians from his 2002 album Sea Change (Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Joey Waronker, Smokey Hormel, Roger Joseph Manning Jr., and Jason Falkner). The press release describes it as "a companion piece of sorts" to that album.
    Of course it's not exactly the same album, and it carries a different (less immediately depressing) thematic tone, but I think it's okay to acknowledge that there are significant similarities, and that he is very consciously evoking Sea Change. I suppose the reason I and many others even thought of it as an issue is because of the guy's track record for diving head first into whatever weird genre or ideas he has on each of his albums. He's never really repeated (or evoked, if you want to be more charitable in phrasing it) his prior work in this way before. We may be judging him more harshly just because of who he is, where we are far more forgiving of the Beach Houses or Nationals of the world who do roughly the same album every three years because that's what we've come to expect of them.

    well put. I had some of these same thoughts.

    I'm not the biggest fan of Sea Change/Morning Phase Beck, but part of me was just disappointed that this is really the first time in his career he's made two records that are this similar, regardless of the level of enjoyment that I get out of this particular style.

    Totally agree here. The chord progressions are a big factor here and you can hear it. Music is, of course, subjective. This certainly seems like the optimist version of Sea Change to me. Just because it "sounds" like Sea Change doesn't mean it's just like it. I feel this is more of the troubadour version of Beck especially in tracks like 'Blue Moon' or 'Country Down'. I think I love Mutations so much because it seems like it wraps up all my favorite things about him. He's an artist you just can't pigeonhole and that's why people love him. I could have sworn I'd never hear 'Debra' live at all. He through it in his Treasure Island Festival set and it was great. Flowed like melted butter. I really feel he's going to be amazing at Coachella this year. We'll get a good diverse set and if he plays 'Debra' again than Arcade Fire better come out with the jams. Also, isn't he supposed to release two records this year? Just sayin. He said after his spine injury he felt amazing. I feel there is a lot left in this man and I can't wait to hear it.

    I'm not sure if I agree with that. The direction he took with Sea Change was pretty unsurprising to anyone who'd given Mutations significant play. I also feel that albums like Guero, The Information and Modern Guilt were derivative of his previous works rather than having their own unique aesthetic.
