Beck – Sea Change (2003) [DVD-AUDIO ISO]

Beck – Sea Change
Artist: Beck | Album: Sea Change | Style: Indie, Alternative Rock | Year: 2003 [2002 original] | Quality: DVD-Audio (MLP 5.1 88.2kHz/24Bit, MLP 2.0 88.2kHz/24Bit, Dolby AC3 5.1) | Bitrate: lossless | Tracks: 11 + 6 videoclips | Size: ~6.34 Gb | Recovery: 5% | Covers: in archive | Release: Geffen Records (B0001840-19), 2003 | Note: Watermarked

Beck has always been known for his ever-changing moods — particularly since they often arrived one after another on one album, sometimes within one song — yet the shift between the neon glitz of Midnite Vultures and the lush, somber Sea Change is startling, and not just because it finds him in full-on singer/songwriter mode, abandoning all of the postmodern pranksterism of its predecessor. What’s startling about Sea Change is how it brings everything that’s run beneath the surface of Beck’s music to the forefront, as if he’s unafraid to not just reveal emotions, but to elliptically examine them in this wonderfully melancholy song cycle. If, on most albums prior to this, Beck’s music was a sonic kaleidoscope — each song shifting familiar and forgotten sounds into colorful, unpredictable combinations — this discards genre-hopping in favor of focus, and the concentration pays off gloriously, resulting in not just his best album, but one of the greatest late-night, brokenhearted albums in pop. This, as many reviews and promotional interviews have noted, is indeed a breakup album, but it’s not a bitter listen; it has a wearily beautiful sound, a comforting, consoling sadness. His words are often evocative, but not nearly as evocative as the music itself, which is rooted equally in country-rock (not alt-country), early-’70s singer/songwriterism, and baroque British psychedelia. With producer Nigel Godrich, Beck has created a warm, enveloping sound, with his acoustic guitar supported by grand string arrangements straight out of Paul Buckmaster, eerie harmonies, and gentle keyboards among other subtler touches that give this record a richness that unveils more with each listen. Surely, some may bemoan the absence of the careening, free-form experimentalism of Odelay, but Beck’s gifts as a songwriter, singer, and musician have never been as brilliant as they are here. As Sea Change is playing, it feels as if Beck singing to you alone, revealing painful, intimate secrets that mirror your own. It’s a genuine masterpiece in an era with too damn few of them.

Beck – Colors (2017) [Official Digital Download 24bit/44,1kHz]

Colors is extreme, featuring some of the best and worst songs that Beck has ever written. After the wave of melancholy that engulfed 2014’s Grammy award-winning Morning Phase – created after a traumatic spinal injury – he has returned robust and emboldened. Songs are energised and enthused; imagine Midnite Vultures frolicking in a kids’ ball pool, wired on echinacea-infused green juice. On the winning side is its title track, his ebullient Once in a Lifetime moment, propelled by a funky flute solo. There is also supreme, sassy guitar anthem Dreams, the existential majesty of Dear Life and Wow, basically Beck’s take on the Ying Yang Twins’ Wait (the Whisper Song) – without the rude bits. This astonishing run of singles battles with the quasi-reggae of No Distraction, or the Maroon 5-like Square One, on an album that’s as shonky as it is sublime.

Although the album features such traditional rock instrumentation as guitars, bass and drums, it also features organs, keyboards and indian sitars, which help lend a spacey yet organic feel to some songs. Beck’s experimental space-age folk rock album done with his backup band and produced by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead).
