So, who's heard it? Okay, I'm a pretty big beck fan, odelay is on my top 10 albums of all time, so, this new one..... hmmmm..... It reminds me a lot of mutations, maybe mixed with a little midnite vultures, and just a little bit of sea change. I don't know, sometimes I think the writing is a little tired, but having said that, there's quite a few songs on it I really dig, namely "Earthquake Weather," "Broken Drum," "Girl," and probably "Farewell Ride" is my favorite. Sounds like a mellow gold/waits-esque track. I think it's better than mutations, but since that's also, I feel, his weakest release, so who knows. And if you were scared off by those remix tracks on that EP he released, the originals are much better, I think.
