    Uninspired, going through the motions. I think there is a disconnect with the audience. I liked the Sea Change songs but outside of that I thought his Neil Young and Bob Dylan covers were forgettable. I never liked E Pro so closing with that didn't help.

    I thought his osl performance was good but not great. Basically kinda like his set at osl in 08. I danced and sang along but I agree that the energy wasn't really there. He left me with the same feeling he did last time. Was hoping he would redeem himself.

    More of this would be good.




    What he should really do is curate an ATP with Thurston Moore and during this event he should play Midnight Vultures one night and Sea Change the next.

    Yeah, that song is absolutely fantastic. And sounds nothing like his other material. The man continues to reinvent himself.

    Really looking to his headlining performance at Newport Folk Fest. I know he's doing these acoustic shows, but I hope it's a little more than Beck with a guitar up on stage. Either way, interested to see what he pulls out.

    I also liked the new song. It's been far too long without any new Beck records. Modern Guilt was very under-appreciated, in my eyes.

    Completely agree. An album full of energy and great songs. Volcano is one of my favorites.

    Really like "Defriended" also. Guess it's going to be released as a stand-alone single. Very exciting hearing new stuff from Beck!!

    also agree.

    If some new up-and-coming artist released an album that sounded like that people would've been shitting themselves.

    Man, Beck is on creative crack right now or something. Dig this one a lot too. Can't wait for the acoustic album though.

    Song Reader was excellent last night. So many great artists on one stage. This guy had some sweet moves.

    Agreed, it was cooler/more entertaining than I was expecting. We All Wear Cloaks was bloody hilarious! Jarvis Cocker was letting loose like no other.

    Being a Beck fan and a musician, I bought Song Reader. Did anyone else buy it?

    It's pretty neat - it's basically a hardcover with folder pockets and 18 individual pieces of sheet music (each designed differently, with funny bonus songs on the back).

    I've learned to play one on the piano - "Just Noise" - and am working on another one. One of these days I'll post my recording of it.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    every song seems to be completely different with influences. this latest one is another crazy departure for him.

    i really dig it.

    When I saw him at the El Rey last year with the Sea Change band it was fantastic. Can't wait to see the spiritual successor to that fantastic album.

    Vedry excited for new Beck! And I have only seen him once, in 2008, and it was amazing. Would love to see him again.
