Beck took Prince's lyrics to his heart, as in 1999 he released this monolith of a party album, so accurately siphoning and paying homage to his R&B/soul influences it was scary. Every song on this disc is an aural delight, each with its own unique flavor and each a pleasure to listen to.
Sexx Laws: fat Stax horns with a banjo solo. Off-the-bat orgasm. A+
Nicotine and Gravy: dark and mysterious, crazy East Indian freak-out. A+
Mixed Bizness: great up-tempo number, used mercilessly by Fox once upon a time... A+
Get Real Paid: the spawn of the previous track's mating robots, Bananarama vs. Kraftwerk, takes getting used to. A
Hollywood Freaks: Beck does rap! We all dance! A+
Peaches and Cream: simply brilliant, keep your lamp light trimmed and burning. A+
Broken Train: a hobo-trip on a train. more acoustic based, slower. A
Milk and Honey: everything about this song is PERFECT!!! A+++
Beautiful Way: the only real acoustic song, could be off of "Mutations", gorgeous. A+
Pressure Zone: Michael Jackson given a rock booster. A+
Debra: his falsetto is amazing, the best song Prince never wrote. A+
I have heard people complain about the sonics overwhelming the melodies of these songs and making the irrelevant. That is not true! The sonics here enhance the songs and makes them a true pleasure to listen to, and the only album that was really playing near New Year's Eve on 1999. Aah, the memories. God bless Mr. Beck!
