Format: Audio CD
People blast this album by citing that Beck is trying to mature. This is not a case of maturation but a natural step in the musical genius of what is "Beck". Instead of maturation, this is the same kind of reinvention Beck has done in all is previous and later albums. One of the best parts of a new beck album is that it will be different but as wonderful as his previous works.

And that's what this is: wonderful. I bought this after falling in love with Beck's previous album, "Midnight Vultures" - the opposite of this album. While "Midnight Vultures" was loud and obnoxious (in a good way), "Sea Change" can be described by a title of his first album, 'Mellow Gold'. Sea change is a soft ride that ends up breaking your heart and lifting your spirits before it's through.

I read somewhere that this was inspired by a recent break-up from a long term girlfriend. You probably could have deduced that yourself if you listened to this album. With that said, this album is stunning and not emo goth kid "I hate my life" depressing fodder.

The emotion in this album is beautiful. This is due to the mix of Beck Hanson's monotone and deep voice and ambient backing music. Despite being criticized for that voice in the past, it works perfectly here. The flow and melody of this album is perfect for its type and no song seems misplaced.

I can't see anyone not liking this album. If you can accept that Beck varies his musical style with each record, you are sure to enjoy this album for what it is: unique and great in its own right. Remeber that you probably wouldn't be listening to "Sexx Laws" off 'Midnight Vultures' if a loved one just died. In the same way, your not going to be listening to 'Sea Change' while drinking beers with your friends.

I started listening to Beck for his humor and genre-mixing. While the idea of Beck getting serious intrigued me, the actual album didn't. Every song on the album feels the same. While others might be excited by the presence of someone who has produced for Radiohead and one of Beck's earlier albums, Mutations, the airy production only further detracts from the album. Syd Barrett, one of the big influences you'll hear here, had a sound of immediacy--on his solo recordings, it's as if he's right next to you, singing and strumming his guitar. Here, the production covers up Beck and obscures the lyrics.
If you like acoustic psychedelic Syd Barrett-esque music, try Wilco's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot--it's what this album should have been like. If you still want a low-key Beck, try Mutations instead.

This cd is truly a classic. What a bit of inspired music. And what a change for Beck from his previous 2 or 3 cds. Might take 2 or 3 listens to appreciate it but if you have gone through some serious life experiences you are bound to appreciate this stunning and sublime album.

This is by far Beck's best. Hope he continues to mine the same vein for a while at least.

Thats all I can say.At first listen you probably wont like it but when youre sad and lonely and want to cry or just want to know someone is as bummed as you are this is the album to listen to you even though the last 2 songs actually sound pretty cheery.

this is beck at his finest hour. many people have been hesitant to call it a classic but i feel no shame. this is about as sad as it gets. but not in an angst sort of way, but in a "i miss you" sort of way. getting dumped ranks up in feeling like crap modes up there with running over an old lady nun in front of your grandmother. that was to stress how crappy it feels. now if this happens to you, and God forbid it ever does, the best thing to do besides massive alcohol and/or drug consumption is Beck's "Sea Change" because the drugs and alcohol are just about equal to the slow melting country guitar strum to Beck's given up desperate voice. this is the ultimate in late night, head phone, eyes watering, memories racing, half drunken closing your eyes in bed records.
it opens up with a guitar that breaks the listeners heart with the song the golden age. "put your hands on the wheel let the golden age begin" suggesting an ironic title to a sad ending chapter of a new life without your loved one. 'paper tiger' and 'lonesome tears' play with horns that roll across your head via your head phones like waves of sound. 'guess i'm doing fine' is a trying to move on song and lost cause is great too. 'end of the day' is a great song too touching country lines jsut as 'the golden age' did. its all in your mind is awesome. already dead is great and has its great trippy keyboard moments. sunday sun is a blast of sunshine that is unwanted in my opinion because at this point your depressed about your own problems and if your not you feel bad for beck. 'little one' is a short epic that is more of a look back on all the crap you've been through. the last track, side of the road, is a song suggesting giving up and trying to move on. but by the looks at this album and your own feelings after listening to it, you'd rather enjoy the music than move on because listening to beck is hell of a lot better than your buddy's break up advice of video games and porn.
