Beck - Morning Phase

Just previewed and ordered Beck's latest album. Well worth a listen and I agree with the 5* reviews. It's good; even on first listen. Anyone else heard it?

RE: Beck - Morning Phase

I'd like to hear it, particularly as the first half of Sea Change has some very strong tracks. I notice Sea Change is now available on Bluray Audio disc, which is tempting.  I think it was originally mastered in hi-res as it had been released on SACD too.

It'll be interesting to see if Morning Phase is also available on BD audio.

RE: Beck

Point taken, Alears.

Forgot about the music thread. However, just a quick mention of Midlake's new album - Antiphon. Another one worth a listen with a hint of 70s/80s prog for good measure! Enjoy.  Smile

RE: Beck - Morning Phase

Bizarrely,said album was just about to come on for first time last night just as I was reading this thread. I got about a third through before falling asleep,but sounded very good.pretty much impossible to be actually better than sea change tho. I'd love ke to chirp in with another recommendation, mellow minimalist music.....Sun kill moon - Benji. Great album. Also heard Lana del rays yesterday for first time...brilliant album,and surely lorde's main inspiration.

Lorde might even pip Lana for me.......brilliant album, and on some tracks it sounds so much like Lana.

PS Where is the music thread?

RE: Beck RE: Beck - Morning Phase

Think the music thread is : 'this week, I've mostly been listening to / watching' but may be wrong. If it is, then it's buried low down the list and mixes music with film/tv. Personally, think that music should stand alone and have a higher priority but that's just an opinion  Smile

If you're interested in that kind of music, feel free to drop into my blog and see if there's anything there that you like.. a few other forum members quite enjoy it..
