"Corvette Bummer" is in the same vain as the "Mellow Gold" album, with an irresitable beat. "Alcohol" is an accoustic reflective tune, quite nice. "Soul Sucking Jerk" is a 6 min. scratch-and-rap tune, also irresistable. "Fume" is the only weak track of the bunch.
Beck has done many different things since "Mellow Gold". I loved "Midnite Vultures" but I just didn't "get" his latest CD ("Sea Change"). However, Beck's output from the "Mellow Gold"-era remains unsurpassed, and this EP is essential.
By the way, did you ever notice that that Butthole Surfers song "Pepper" sounds exactly like "Loser". I for one think that's no coincidence.
Anyway, this is a must-buy for those like weird, psychotic music.
