Beck - Sea Change mp3 album

Sea Change is the eighth studio album by American musician Beck, released on September 24, 2002 by Geffen Records. Recorded over a two-month period in Los Angeles with producer Nigel Godrich, the album features themes of heartbreak and desolation, solitude, and loneliness. For the album, much of Beck's trademark recondite and ironic lyrics were replaced by simpler, more sincere lyrical content. He also eschewed the heavy sampling of his previous albums for live instrumentation.

Backing Vocals – Beck (tracks: A3, B2, D1, D2), Justin Meldal-Johnsen (tracks: A3, B2, D2), Roger Joseph Manning Jr. (tracks: A3, B2, D2). Bass – Justin Meldal-Johnsen (tracks: A1 to 4, B3, C3 to D2). Clavinet – Roger Joseph Manning Jr. (tracks: A3, B2, B3, D1). Design, Art Direction – Beck, Kevin Reagan. Double Bass – Justin Meldal-Johnsen (tracks: B2, C1, C2, D1, D3). Drums – James Gadson (tracks: A2, B1, B3, C3), Joey Waronker (tracks: A1, A3, B2, C1, D1 to D3).

But it's Sea Change's most daring tracks that are ultimately its most satisfying. Beck's father, David Campbell, contributes inventive string arrangements to three cuts: "Paper Tiger" is a low-key triumph, with a minimal bed of bass and drums punched up by sudden, deep string attacks- Beck's "Glass Onion," if you will; the deliciously overwrought "Lonesome Tears" is an uncomfortably raw display of emotion, with an unpredictable melody and unbelievably tortured chorus. But Cap'n Beck saves his strangest songs for the second half of the album, with the enigmatic "Sunday Sun" bathing odd, disjointed lyrics ("Jealous minds walk in a line, and their faces jade the strain") in a Brian Wilson-inspired glow, with mixed but cosmetically acceptable results.

Listen free to Beck – Sea Change (The Golden Age, Paper Tiger and more). Beck has always been known for his ever-changing moods - particularly since they often arrived one after another on one album, sometimes within one song - yet the shift between the neon glitz of Midnite Vultures and the lush, somber Sea Change is startling, and not just because it finds him in full-on singer/songwriter mode, abandoning all of the postmodern pranksterism of its predecessor.

Inspired by the dissolution of a longtime relationship, Beck transformed his sadness into both his most personal and beautiful record to date, trading his trademark sample-filled songs and impressionistic, irreverent lyrics for pensive melodies, sweeping strings and direct, confessional lyrics.

In this album however, there is a different side of Beck. the singer-songwriter Beck as opposed to Beck the sonic contortionist. focussing on his voice and his acoustic guitar. it's hard to believe it's the same guy who wrote "Where It's At" or "Sexxx Laws"  . It's basically acoustic songs tinted with a bit of Becks choatic experimentalism, really. It's Nigel Godriches production that gives this album it's beauty.
