5.0 out of 5 stars . Dec 3 2005
Format:Audio CD
I always thought this version was a lot better than the other one which ommitted Soul Sucking Jerk and Fume for MTV Makes Me Want to Smoke Crack. MTV Makes Me... may be a hilarious song title, but other than the first thirty seconds it's a horrible song.

4.0 out of 5 stars two versions May 17 2004
By T.A.
Format:Audio CD
Evidently, there are 2 versions of this single. I bought one way back in the day which has LOSER on it, accompanied by CORVETTE BUMMER and these two other UNBELIEVABLE songs! TOTALLY CONFUSED, a mellow song with (get this) a female back up singer, and one of Beck's greatest songs of all time--MTV MAKES ME WANT TO SMOKE CRACK, where Beck tears it up on the piano. You need to find this version of the single as well, because the songs on this particular version are really cool, but having a Beck collection at your home without MTV MAKES ME WANT TO SMOKE CRACK is like showing up at church naked...it's UNSPEAKABLE!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gonna fly like a dog.. Nov. 8 2003
Format:Audio CD
This EP is absolutely perfect, I bought this based on hearing "Loser" on the radio again recently, and the best song on here has to be "Corvette Bummer", can't see why it failed to get on the album."Gonna walk around this town with a can of whiskey, gonna fly like a bird..", and the reject version of "Soul Suckin' Jerk" is also superior to "MellowGold"'s version. "Fume" is also awesome, "Smokin' broken pencils and drinkin' a Coke" will make you just crack up. Put this one in your cd changer in your trunk for sure.

"Loser" is the song that put Beck on the musical map and this EP (5 songs, 23 min.) is essential to any Beck fan's collection. For one, none of the 4 bonus songs are on the "Mellow Gold" album.
"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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pure insanity Aug. 29 2002
Format:Audio CD
I don't think this is the best Beck album to buy, that would be "Odelay", but this does have what is perhaps his best and most demented song to date. That of course is the title track. How does he even come up with these lyrics? They're almost surreal in their randomness. This song makes "I Am the Walrus" sound normal by comparison. Beck's really not a great singer, but the way he delivers these lyrics is just flawless. I really can't describe what I'm talking about here. Like, I'm a much better singer, but I could never do it as perfectly as he does. If that doesn't make sense, oh well. It's befitting of a Beck review anyway. :-P
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Birth of a Genius Aug. 3 2002
Format:Audio CD
This EP is a true gem. Other reviewers here have sung its praises well, but most have suggested it was released (or should be considered) as suplimentary material to Mellow Gold. This EP apeared before Mellow Gold, and its vision should be credited for MG and Beck's popular breakthrough. Most of these tracks were recorded in an amateur studio, written and performed by an artist who was hitherto a nearly homeless outsider in the Indie scene in LA. On this disk you will hear a Beck with the dazzling lyrical inventiveness and surefooted rhythm that he has become known for, but little of the pretentiousness and bloated overproduction that releases like Midnight Vultures have earned him. Lest we forget, Beck's arrival marked a breakthrough for whiteboy hiphop nearly as significant as the Beastie Boys. This EP marks that emergence and thus will always sound revolutionary to me. This disk is loaded with significance and the artist seems to know it. Behind the laughing-up-his-sleeve bravado, the Beck of the Loser EP is exploding with the urgency of this new vision. It continues to astound me.

4.0 out of 5 stars if you liked mellow gold and want some more... April 12 2002
By Mike K.
Format:Audio CD
this is the place to go. Most of these songs are actually stronger than some things that ended up on that album. Since it's short and because I can, I'll go through each track now.

1. Loser - Not much I can say here. the same old single we all know and love.
2. Corvette Bummer - Nice groove. I love the fact that despite being a "rap" song, most of the lines don't actually rhyme with each other, and yet it takes you a while for you to notice this because Beck makes it flow so well. Somehow I really like the way he's spitting out his "p's" in the vocal delivery. The ending is bizarre and hillarious as well.
3. alcohol - a pretty folk song about being drunk. This song has always kind of creeped me out in a way. I remember when I was 13 and accidentally played it on the jukebox because it was the b-side to "Loser" it freaked me out, especially that weird unexpected noise coda, and the line "if I stay in the same place, the animals will lick my face". Nowadays I'm somewhat used to weird noises leaping out of my stereo thanks to hearing a few residents albums, but it's still eerie, albeit in a good way.
4. Soul Sucking Jerk (Reject) - While the version of this song on mellow gold has it's own appeal in it's pure bizarre trippiness, I prefer the more straightforward funkier version found here. I love the bit towards the beginning where Beck announces "rockin' the town like a moldy crouton!", and the long funky organ solo (which is mostly why this version's longer). Only thing I don't like is that the verse order is switched around a bit, partially because it throws me off trying to sing along, and partially because it starts off with what I always thought to be the weakest verse lyrically.
5. fume - funny and yet kind of scary.
