decided not to embed these videos as it will make the beginning of the thread a bit buggy.

I opted not to do a videos ballot bc I didnt have strong memories of pretty much any of the videos, except for this one, which I remember seeing a lot at the time of & enjoying - the flaming squeegee and moving coffin both are embedded in my brain as quintessential beck imagery.

Haha the 120 minutes jam, great idea. Dang now I wish I did a videos ballot!

I just heard a recent interview with beck where he said devils haircut remains his favorite of all his videos, a good #1

a much better record than both guero and the information

american bradass (BradNelson), Tuesday, 4 June 2019 19:16 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Yeah it’s probably my fave of the post-90s albums. Can’t remember if it made the cut in my ballot or not but I like “Volcano” a lot, probably his best version of that type of song imo.

That acoustic version was a pleasant surprise, it’s cool he put that out, definitely superior versions of some tracks

One Eye Open, Tuesday, 4 June 2019 19:29 (two weeks ago) Permalink

...although I'll admit I still dont really get what people see in danger mouse or what he brings to the table as a producer, especially when it comes to beck, of all people - like having badfinger produce the beatles.

Hearing "E-Pro" depressed me. It struck me as a death rattle ("Back to THIS sound?").

I need to give this one another shot I think. I agree that Modern Guilt, which I checked out for the first time as a result of this poll, is better.

Too bad "In a Cold Ass Fashion" is so obscure; it's a great patchwork of nonsense in the "Loser/Beercan" vein. Got a couple of my favorite non-sequitur lyrics: "And I'm trying not to look at Satan making love to a dishrag" and "Went to sleep, woke up in a coffin / Took out my eyeballs and put 'em in a condom."

btw alfred: "tropicalia" ends side one of mutations, at least on all official released versions of the lp. i was surprised too! ("diamond bollocks" and "runners dial zero" get their own 7-inch, which i thought was a nice touch)

american bradass (BradNelson), Saturday, 8 June 2019 14:53 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I didn't expect my #2 "Outcome" to place but I did expect "He's a Mighty Good Leader" to show up somewhere.

"Hollow Log" seems like a good winner for One Foot In The Grave tho, even though I assumed "Asshole" was the consensus favorite.

billstevejim, Saturday, 8 June 2019 15:28 (two weeks ago) Permalink

extended 'gimme' sure is one long, strange trip

imago, Saturday, 8 June 2019 15:30 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Regarding Sea Change, most of the album doesn't place among my favorites except for "End Of The Day" (which for some reason I thought was titled "Nothing That I Haven't Seen Before") -- again, I assumed this was the obvious consensus standout.

billstevejim, Saturday, 8 June 2019 15:33 (two weeks ago) Permalink

As much as I'd like to get upset over his signature song winning this, it always sounds fresh every time I hear it. Not nearly as annoying as "Smells Like Teen Spirit" winning the Nirvana poll.

billstevejim, Saturday, 8 June 2019 15:39 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I thought the same thing re:Mighty Good Leader, seems like one of the essential tracks from one One Foot. But also very happy that Hollow Log wound up where it did

I don't know Beck that well so I didn't vote, but really enjoyed the rollout, images, and discussion. I have to express my puzzlement, though, that no one voted for my favorite Beck thing, the video for "Deadweight." Those first three Director Series DVDs, and Gondry's especially, seemed to come from an alternate universe where the '90s were an era of nonpareil pop culture creativity.

Deadweight would’ve ranked very high on my ballot but I haven’t really liked anything he’s done since Mutations and I don’t even really like that one much

brimstead, Monday, 10 June 2019 00:02 (two weeks ago) Permalink

that one - mutations not deadweight.

Can't believe "ELectric Music and the Summer People" is nowhere in this thread!

i wanted to link the original voting thread in here. just realized it is nowhere to be found on this one:
