    I had a couple of his songs on my computer that I never listened to until recently, and they're pretty cool so far. Can anyone recommend any good songs/albums by him worth getting?

    Beck's singles didn't really make a great impression on me. But a few months ago a friend gave me "Mellow Gold", "Midnight Vultures", "Odelay" and "Mutations", and to me now he's certainly an album artist. The singles sound so differant to the bulk of his material.

    I think that's why I like "Mutations" the most. It's like a Beck album before he got stuck in with all the syths and mixing. It's very simple, almost folk in parts, and it helps show just how good the songs are. Something I think the production has lost on other records.

    For me songs from this album to download would be...

    Nobody's Fault But My Own
    We Live Again
    O Maria
    Sing It Again

    Beck's "Sea Change" is a beautiful album. If you are familiar with his old stuff this album will be a huge surprise because it is so depressing. Not one song on this album is anything near being happy. I love this album so much though, it is great for listening to at night when you are alone. It is one of those albums that I always listen to from start to finish to get the full effect. I would recommend this album to anyone who has ever felt pain.

    I Love Stereopathic Soul Manure. It is on an indie lable, it's very raw, lots of recordings from when he was a bum.

    I Love Beck, we share the same birthday, July 8. I met him at a party in Hollywood once, no fucking joke. It was "Club Make-uP" at the El Ray on Santa Monica Blvd. I got invited because I was promoting it, it was the Moulin Rouge CD and film release party. Beck covered David Bowie's Diamond Dogs on the CD. It was my first LA party and it was full of flamboyant drag queens in the Moulin Rouge attire. Beck was very incognito, in jeans, wearing a hat, scarf, cardigan and one star tennis shoes. My man went up behind him and said,
    "Milking the Kay tale" (SP?) like kaytale records only i'm sure that's not how you spell it. Anyway it was a line from a poem on the inside cover of Mellow Gold. Beck took three steps, then turned around and came over to us and started chatting,
    just asking us if we were enjoying the show, and the club and do you come here often. He does about once a month or every other month or so. It's a pretty cool place, he said. then have a good evening.

    He's the only famous person besides Hank Williams III that I have ever met and I would have picked to meet Beck if anyone had ever asked which famous person I would like to meet.
