    I like it what a super cool idea. At least for musicians anyway.

    I started reading the article, but then I was attacked by Juggalos so I had to split.

    I wonder will he be charging bands royalties for releasing the "covers" online

    i saw this on facebook this morning and find it hilarious because anyone that's been to a punk or hardcore show in the past 15 years (possibly more, this is how long I've been going) knows vinyl never went away so it cant really have a resurgence.

    Of course...see the Vinyl Spinners Club thread. We know.

    I just thought it very clever. :smug:

    Oh, and oops. I realize this is semi-music-related (but moreso Artist news)...should this be moved to Misc? I appreciate your consideration, Mods.

    Yes. I see it. Perhaps a merge then? I will flag and suggest.

    I think this is very cool. I need to really get into proper music notation reading...this will be fun! I too would LOVE to hear people's interpretations of this work...I hope there is a fan-recording site.

    It sounds very pretentious to me.

    I like a couple of Beck's tunes, but I never got why he was always heralded as some sort of musical genius. Just IMHO.

    Pretentious it may be, but I don't see anything wrong with this even if it is. You're still getting something, and imo, getting much more out of it, if you ask me it IS genius. I see a lot of value in this past the novelty or media-mention it's gotten so far. YMMV. It's been 5 years since his last album of his own material. Can you think of a better, more novel way of promoting a new project? You know full well a proper physical album will follow on its heels, it's inevitable...but hey, I'm into creative marketing. And that is what this is. Would you rather a Beck porn tape scandal?

    Submit your versions of the tunes quick before Beck does !

    Maybe it'll make it to the inevitable album as a hidden track , like , the B-side.:)

    One thing he could do marketing wise is to have bands submit recordings of the music. Have a method to choose the best of each track. Pay a set fee to those who are chosen. He can add his vocals over the top, and release an album that way. So many people would eat that up.
