it would be so easy to say 'sea changes' or 'odelay', but probably 'mellow gold' for me.  it incorporates the good parts of both of those albums.

I love 'em all.  Because Beck is so diverse its hard to pick just one because I love each of them in a different way.  Overall though I guess I'd say either "Sea Change" or "Midnite Vultures"

Midnite Vultures is my favorite.  Anytime good artists emulate Prince is okay by me (like Andre 3000's disc on the new Outkast album).  He said he wanted to make a dumb party album to close out the 90s and damned if he didn't succeed.

But I think Mutations is his best album, not my favorite but the best laid out. Of everything he's done, I think that one deserves to be the one that he is remembered for.

Every other Beck album is spotty (more good than bad though) as far as I'm concerned.

Midnite Vultures is my favorite.


Yes! You are correct, sir!

my favorite is Mutations.
but i like pretty much everything he's done.
he's one of the few people who can try different genres and never sound cliche'.
i believe he i going to release a new one this year......you never know what to expect from him.......most likely good

Mine is 'Odelay' because IMO, his lyrics started to make sense on 'Mutations', the vocals were too high for me to sing along with on 'Midnite Vultures', and on Sea Change the lyrics make sense again.
But I love all those four albums, & never heard 'Mellow Gold'.
Beck is the damned best.

Beck has contributed the song "Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime" to the "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" soundtrack, due out March 16th on Hollywood Records. "Eternal Sunshine" is the new film by frequent Beck collaborator Michel Gondry, and stars Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

BECK MARRIES BELLE

American rocker BECK has reportedly married his eight-month pregnant girlfriend MARISSA RIBISI.

According to American news site PAGE SIX, the pair tied the knot in secret in Santa Monica, California, on Saturday (3APR04).

Ribisi, who is the twin sister of actor GIOVANNI RIBISI, was last seen at a concert Beck performed in Los Angeles last week alongside fellow Scientologists JULIETTE LEWIS and ERICA CHRISTENSEN.
