557. Beck - mellow gold

Everybody knows this album from 'Loser' of course, but the record had a much greater impact than that single ever could have. A true indie, do it yourself artist had released a album on a major label - on Gn'R's label! Granted Sonic Youth, Nirvana and Weezer were on DGC too but still, Beck was the first of his kind to take bedroom made songs onto a major label - and have it work. Now this probably didn't open all the major labels to signing more artists like Beck, but he did inspire and motivate others to try what he was doing at home. Quite the loser.

6.8 out of 10
