The genius that is, Beck.,
This review is from: Morning Phase (Audio CD)
As we all know, Beck has been around for years, however only now have I been hit with his amazing music, so bare in mind if you're a more avid listener to Beck, this is the first record of his I've listened to.
With that anti folk genre he has established, Beck is back with his twelfth album, and his first in the last six years, Morning Phase is a beautiful collection of tracks that seem to transition perfectly between each other which makes the album sound like one big, beautiful song.
With the first single from the album, Blue Moon, being the best with it's loud but soft drum beat, excellent banjo work backed with an acoustic gives this song the foundation to lay beautiful lyrics and take over your ear drums in the best possible way. With it's guitar solo towards the end of the song you can't help but think "So this, is the definition of experience." That's not to say it's his best ever song, as I cannot judge, but it is something that has had hours of work put into it. And remember, that's only one song from the album. Another honourable mention is "Turn Away", great acoustic guitar work, great lyrics sang in amazing vocals, this song would remind you of a Simon and Garfunkel song. Song I disliked the most of the album would be "Blackbird Chain", not a bad song at all, but If I had to pick a singular track to be the worst, I would pick that.
On top of all that Morning Phase is nothing short of an Audible Masterpiece. Cellos and Violins, electric Guitars with it's cousins Bass and Acoustic, bass drums of impact and keyboards of angelic keynotes all make up the glorious orchestra that is Beck. New listener or not, all I can say is, just buy it.
But if this has not completely sold you, check out the other great reviews for this product.
