Beck - Mellow Gold album

Mellow Gold is the third album by Beck. It is his official debut studio album as well as his major label debut. Mellow Gold was released on March 1, 1994, following the surprise success of its lead single, Loser. The album features a hybrid of various styles including rock, hip-hop, folk, psychedelia, and country; along with ironic, witty lyrics. The decidedly anti-commercial attitude of Mellow Gold made it an unexpected success after going platinum. Tap and hold to copy URL. Mellow Gold Tracklist.

Far more than a novelty jester, Beck is a musical anarchist and bummed-out street prophet whose audience will squirm and thrill to the slacker delta blues of "Whiskeyclone" and urban nightmares like "Truckdrivin Neighbors Downstairs. Absolutely the best Beck album I know of, in my opinion. If you're new to Beck and want to experience a broad spectrum of his versatility then this album is for you. There are some haunting toe tappers on this one. If you like Beck AND have a twisted sense of humor, this album might speak to you on a much deeper level than some of his other albums have/will. Don't get me wrong, I like Beck's other albums too but this one is really dark and heartfelt from a sicko genius standpoint

Beck Hansen (born Bek David Campbell; July 8, 1970), known mononymously as Beck, is an American singer-songwriter, musician, and record producer. He rose to fame in the early 1990s with his experimental and lo-fi style, and became known for creating musical collages of wide genre styles. Today, he musically encompasses folk, funk, soul, hip hop, electronic, alternative rock, country, and psychedelia

From its kaleidoscopic array of junk-culture musical styles to its assured, surrealistic wordplay, Beck's debut album, Mellow Gold, is a stunner. Throughout the record, Beck plays as if there are no divisions between musical genres, freely blending rock, rap, folk, psychedelia, and country. Although his inspired sense of humor occasionally plays like he's a smirking, irony-addled hipster, his music is never kitschy, and his wordplay is constantly inspired.

Album Name Mellow Gold.

This album might go a bit overboard on the silliness. But Beck still manages to bring lots of laughs from this album. 10 years later and I still enjoy this album to its fullest. He opened for the Rolling Stones (I'd easily say that he was better the TR. Anyway, he played mostly Mellow Gold stuff, and the place freaked out when he played "Loser".

Named after an especially gnarly strain of California weed, Beck's breakout record is where Dylan's Blonde on Blonde and the Beastie Boys' Paul's Boutique met in the bathroom between class and got hiiiiiiiiigh as the Himalayas.

I got this release on black vinyl. Personally I think it sounds like CRAP! Mine sounds like it was a copy made from ANOTHER RECORD and not one in good condition either. "Loser" has so much surface noise it might have been mastered from an old 78RPM record! The rest of side 1 is ok at best. Side 2 is a bit better...but it has a constant crackle start to finish. My copy is off-centered as well. I can actually see small dents and imperfections in the vinyl. Had an almost "used" look from brand new. Glad I only dropped $25 on this pressing.

When it says "album, mini-album", does that mean there are 2 discs? And if so, are there any extra songs?
Gholbirius
yes, I have a marbled orange copy.
Wetiwavas
My copy is a dark orange with black, any one else have a copy like this? Looks pretty cool, I wasn't expecting colored vinyl!
Arakus
Sorry for the super late reply beatamazon, my copy sounds great but it is cut very quiet.
DireRaven
How is the sound?
Onaxan
Yeah, that's the one I have. The colored vinyl was a total surprise. Actually I was surprised to even see the record for sale new, so I assumed it was some kind of unofficial release. I was a bit worried, because it looked a little cheap, and I find that the record is very quiet. Still, it's nice to have it on vinyl.
