A new Beck album is like unveiling the latest Victorian circus freak – surrounded by gawping crowds wondering what the circus master s come up with this time. Weird, sure, but worth the entrance fee? The good news is Mr Hansen has produced another cracker
A new Beck album is like unveiling the latest Victorian circus freak - surrounded by gawping crowds wondering what the circus master's come up with this time. Weird, sure, but worth the entrance fee?
The good news is Mr Hansen has produced another cracker, fresh yet familiar with prominent basslines underpinning amalgams of electro samples, live percussion, piano, and his trademark rapping.
Lead single Cellphone's Dead is funky, instantly accessible and a great introduction to Beck's seventh studio release.
It's time to rejoice at his wonky hip-hop beats, tinges of Americana and the junkyard approach to surprising songwriting.
