Beck - Colors— Si Sharp -
Beck is at his best when he’s a cultural magpie. It was through picking shiny things from hip hop that he created Odelay and here he’s bringing stuff back to his nest from further afield. Vocal melody from Phoenix in Seventh Heaven, a bit of Elliott Smith in Dear Life, some Santigold ska in No Distraction and lashings of electro-pop elsewhere all of which covered in crystal clear pop production. This is dancefloor Beck and he’s never been better.
