    Beck is popular, just not outside of the US. In America he is like a living legend.

    Beck is big in America. Not Springsteen huge but still really big.

    In this case, the UK are the fools.

    morriss doesn't just 'like' Beck. He owns practically everything he's done and Beck is morriss' absolute favourite artist.

    morriss is a Beck-fanboy.

    Oi, I would contest morriss for that title; I even bought his tickets to see Beck a two years ago, when he had to cancel!

    The only thing that pisses me off about him; http://www.lermanet.com/beck/ :(

    Still, he's fucking great. I want 'Jackass' played at my funeral.

    His lyrics, his public statement, don't seem to be affected by his beliefs, so as far as I'm concerned, behind closed doors, he can think what he likes. Just as long as he doesn't start preaching, I'm happy.

    Well, I broadly agree. If anything, maybe it has heightened his oddness... Still, it means I find it disturbing. Anyway.

    Favourite tracks, anyone? Did you like The Information? I preferred it to Guero.

    New single

    It was released on August 21, but I haven't heard it before. Surely a new album isn't this close (as in, within the next year)?

    'timebomb' is an itunes exclusive new single dowload.
    not a new album or anything - imaine that, another one already.

    the packaging for the information and the book edition of guero are sexy beans.

    Loved Guero, hated The Information. Just seemed insipid (though the music videos were bizarrely watchable)

    Always annoying when rock stars start plugging their shitty religions.

    Mrs Wobble likes Beck, so I looked into getting his back catalogue and was shocked to see how expensive the cds were.. 14-16 kind of expensive... which I'm not paying for a CD. (I bought Odelay for 13 i think) ..
    So if I wanted to buy more of his back catalogue, where do you think is the best place to get them from?

    I was a fan till I found out about him being a fudging Xenu basher. I realise that shouldn't effect whether I enjoy his music but now whenever I listen to him that's always in the back of my mind.

    Quite a bit cheaper than that on Amazon - 5 to 9 generally

    Me too....but then I don't listen much to words and just regard them as another noise/instrument. I think too much prog rock in my teens did this to me....

    I'd like it if he did another album like Mutations. His electronic/hip-hop stuff's all very good, but I prefer the acoustic/country stuff TBH.

    Me++. Also, he's started repeating himself - his last few albums have been dull.

    I still can't really listen to The Information without getting bored about 60% of the way through.

    Guero and Odelay are far and away his best albums. Mutations is pretty close though.
