A seasoned allrounder capable of turning himself to any generic makeover he cares to, Beck
Hansen’s ability to remake and remodel is long established. In sharp contrast to the solemn folkie-based meditations of 2014’s Morning Phase, 2017 finds him in full-on party-pumping funk form. The glistening, happy-slappy groove of Seventh Heaven skates on the surface of pleasure, the playfulness flies further on I’m So Free. It’s a typically consummate, pop-literate collection from a master of reinvention.
