Morning Phase is perfect Sunday morning music
on 28 May 2014
Morning Phase appears to be a continuation of Sea Change, which was a radical departure for Beck. Just to qualify that statement, Beck has done slower, melancholy and introspective music before, but often just as a single song on an album. Morning Phase and Sea Change are both album-length explorations of those styles and themes. Maybe it's because I'm of a similar age as Beck, and that we've both grown together that I find his gear shifting in sound so appealing. Who knows. Either way, Morning Phase — like Sea Change before it — is perfect Sunday morning music.
