re: Any Beck fans?


Beck is solid artist, one of the best of the 90's (The Dust Brothers production helped him lift off)

To me he is most underrated as a lyricist, songwriter (Sea Changes), and, yes, rapper.

He has some of the wackiest lyrics of all time, for sure, and makes them catchy:

quote:

All my days I had moldy bread
Robot brains and the flying airplanes
Hollowed out and filled with dust
Rocking like a hurricane under the rug
Bored to the core on a sunken boat
A worn out candle and a plastic coat
A ziploc bag, a pelican bone
A perfect, stupid, cardboard reject
Overfed, electric comatose
Riding in the air, invisible socks
A broken blanket, flaming sawdust
Waking up in the shadow of a piece of dirt

Gonna fly like a dog, gonna leap right out the wall
Gonna walk around this town with a can of whiskey
Gonna run like a bird, gonna roll out in the dirt
Gonna run around this town with a phone machine

Yellow cat laying flat on the road
Molten lead shooting out the ground
Tinfoil witch burning under the bridge
Flap your wings and leap out the window
Put a glass eye in the eyes of God
Nuke the kids,
Polaroid cupcake
Take it to the limit, new wave biscuit
Camouflage gimmick, wimp out like never before

Gonna jump like a flag, gonna burn like a pig
Gonna flap around and pass out on the kitchen floor
Gonna crawl like a rock, gonna dance like a worm
Gonna take my shoes right off and smell my socks

Also one of the best of the 2000's so far.His new albums are as good as his old ones.

I can listen to some Beck, though Jack White is a far superior artist.

I like Jack White but he sucks compared to Beck imo.Not nearly as good of a songwriter.

re: Any Beck fans?


I can see your argument about Beck's songwriting capabilities. However JW is a far superior musician.

Maybe so, they're both good.I put songwriting over musicianship as far as the type of artists I like.

Fair enough. I am less of a singer-songwriter kind of guy and enjoy incredible musicianship. I largely see vocals as merely another instrument with the meaning of the lyrics themselves as having secondary importance. Yet I realize I am in the minority with this view.

I like him. I've only listened to maybe 3 of his albums, though. He's got a ton of material.
