USA, 1994, alternative rock / singer-songwriter / lo-fi

BeckMellow Gold: The song that put Beck on the map, “Loser”, is actually the weakest song on this album. For most people, this is Beck’s debut. Maybe the lead single, so overplayed as to become trite in many music nerds’ minds, is the reason *Mellow Gold* hasn’t gotten the love it deserves. Many years ago, I took Beck’s sage advice and have ever since been giving the finger to the rock n roll singer who dances upon my paycheck. Beck simply doesn’t get better than “Truckdrivin Neighbors Downstairs”, spoken intro and all. Come on, motherfucker! Put your clothes on!
