Best of Beck Six must-hear tunes

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - COVER STORY -

Death is Com­ing to Get You

An outtake from Beck’s unof­fi­cial, de­but Golden Feel­ings pro­duced dur­ing his very lo-fi, anti-folk years (my friend used to play it at par­ties).

Loser

In­ge­nious, ram­shackle, folk-hop an­them and re­sented slacker mill­stone from 1994’s Mel­low Gold (Beck re­leased two other al­bums in 1994 – Stere­opa­thetic Soul­ma­nure and One Foot in the Grave).

Devil’s Hair­cut

Gets the Dust Broth­ers to help cre­ate a groove­tas­tic, post­mod­ern gem with 1996’s Ode­lay.

Lost Cause

Ex­or­cises his heartache with works of straight­for­ward beauty on 2002’s

Sea Change.

El Pro

Re­turns to the Dust Broth­ers and party mu­sic in 2005 with Guero (he also se­ri­ously in­jures his back mak­ing the video).

Morn­ing

Lovely, happy-sad west-coast lethargy from last year’s Morn­ing

Phase or, if you like, Sea Change 2.
