559. Beck - mutations


This was the first proper Beck cd I got, recorded in three days (or five) with Nigel Godrich. The disc sounds like a mix between 'Odelay' and 'Sea Change', with slow somber songs ("Nobody's Fault But my Own"), more upbeat fare ("Tropicalia"), and his typical cut and paste samples ("Static"). What it was more importantly though, was an opportunity for Beck to show a different side that was both more melodic and songwriter focused. The result is an uneven but important disc.

7.3 out of 10

Actually, one foot in the grave, which came out post mellow gold was an all acoustic blues stomp. however, given that MG was his first major label, mutations did expose his mass audience. great disk
