The very first thing Beck has done that I outright hate, and that includes weird noise tracks and audio nonsense.
Gmork - 2016-11-30
Also I understand this may have been an "attempt" at satirizing certain types of modern music but it ends up just _being_ it. Also, that's a pretty weak Beck Rap.

I've always enjoyed Beck's nonsense lyrics. He's at his best when he's phasing what I call "sad abstractions." I.e. "a termite
who's chokin' on the splinters." What does that mean? Damned if I know, but it paints a vivid image of dread and helplessness.

This song feels like a halfhearted attempted at self-parody. Sound collage, 808's, falsetto vocals drowning in reverb, backed by country-western motifs are all established Beck "tropes" that he lazily threw together over a three-day weekend.

I kind of want congratulate the man, he pulled off "The Great Rock n' Roll Swindle" the lest amount of effort musical for maximum profit. This horrible song is in every other commercial and that must make a healthy amount of money for Beck. But as we all know by now auditing sessions don't come cheep.

you guys are acting like he's never written a bad song until now

I haven't really liked Beck's work since Sea Change. I'm just amazed how horrible this song is.

Nothing can undo Sea Change. Sure, this is garbage comparatively, but slightly better than most shit on the radio.

Gmork - 2016-12-01
Sea Change was pretty good, but it's not something I'd ever listen to front-to-back. The Information was good, don't gimme that. Morning Phase and Modern Guilt can suck a dick though. Starbucks album all the way.

Soon, would it'd be safe to say that you folks would probably put Midnight Vultures up near the pinnacle of his achievements?
Gmork - 2016-12-01
Debra is probably the best song he's ever been involved in.
