Product Description

Amazon.ca

When the consensus is that you're the new Dylan, it's your prerogative to rewrite the record industry's rules. So in 1994, the same year Beck had major-label hits with "Loser" and the album Mellow Gold, he saw fit (and was allowed by his label, Geffen) to release three other records on various indie labels. While none challenged Beck's "real" album in quality or sales, Stereopathetic Soul Manure is his most successful collection of unpolished toss-offs. Collecting various low-fi recordings made between 1988 and '93, the record alternates between folkie strumming, pedal-steel country, noise-guitar freakouts, and bizarre soundbites. Not essential, but it has its charms. --Roni Sarig

5.0 out of 5 stars The 1st CD released by "Bizarro" Beck May 17 2004
By T.A.
Format:Audio CD
I picked this CD up only after I was prodded to do so by my wastoid friends. Fresh out of college, I wasn't impressed much by this song "Loser" I kept hearing on the radio. In 1994, I was much more interested in Soundgarden and Nirvana to care. A buddy made me listen to this "alternate" CD that Beck released simultaneously with "Mellow Gold." We smoked out, and the journey began...
What people don't understand is that Beck enjoys playing two definitive styles of music. There's "disco" Beck (Mellow Gold, Odelay, Midnight Vultures) and then there's "bizarro" Beck (Stereopathetic, One Foot in the Grave, Mutations, Sea Change). Unlike many pop stars today, he chooses NOT to mix all of his influences together to make one watered down, radiio friendly CD. He'd rather allow the music to stay pure, almost as an homage, and address his listeners with his amazing versatility. This man can play the piano, guitar, lap guitar, banjo, drums, and countless other intruments! He presents a tune from a familiar genre, and accentuates it with fantastically crafted, witty, hilarious lyrics, to which any young, lost liberal can relate. I am 32 now, and I still love blasting MODESTO, SATAN..., ROWBOAT, OZZY and THE SPIRIT... for my neighbors. I've played this CD for my buddies who like country music, and they really DON'T dig it--which is fine by me. This is not a country CD! There are a number of "folk" tunes, I'd say, with that undeniable Texas influence. You will never experience another CD like this one....I promise. If your metal head friends don't get it, blast PINK NOISE for them...all that late 80's hard core and speed metal come alive again! Listen to this CD, and you'll realize why Beck sings, "MTV makes me want to smoke crack." Apparently, he DID, and this may be the fruits of his "labor." A must have.

2.0 out of 5 stars cough! hack! deer god , let it end! Jan. 29 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
UgH! this one hurt. I like beck. I really do. But not to the point where i don't recognize crap when i hear it. SOme people are just so ready to be his number 1 fans, they can let anything slip, even this. I cannot. I'm not sure what the point of this album was but it was a slap in the face next to other beck offerings. Seriously people, you guys who throw around '5 star' ratings like monopoly money, do you really think this stands up to 'Mellow Gold', or 'Mutations?'..or even Midnight Vultures? Even 'One foot in the grave' was better than this.
Alas, there is one lone brightspot on this offering. WHo can't love a tune called 'Satan Gave me a Taco'. The lyrics were humourous yet strangely familiar..and the tune was folky and had me moving a bit. Of course, by the time that solitary gem floated down my river, i had been subjected to all manner if sonic inhumanity. Its a painfull listen and certainly not neccesary unless you enjoy having your ears sodomized by bleeps, blaps and other nonsense.
and to you, Chad Curtis, musician extraordinaire, spare us the 'open your minds' speech. A turd is a turd buddy no matter how much perfume you put on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too much cough syrup Nov. 15 2003
Format:Audio CD
Beck could be described as eccentric.
If you were to look eccentric up in a dictionary there is a good chance that "Stereopathetic Soulmanure" would be mentioned.
A loose collection of studio chatter and acoustic guitar S. S. is sure to leave you scratching your head in wonder, and don't be surprised if that scratching leaves your scalp raw and bloody. Nothing here makes sense, but the reason deficit is a pleasant break from whatever you have been listening to.
Tracks like "Satan Gave Me a Taco" actually are comprehensible, but they are few and far between. This album is closer to a drug experience than an ordinary music disc. If you have ever drank enough cough syrup to have a disassociate experience you know more or less how this album will make you feel.
Unlike anything you have ever heard before and unlike anything you will ever hear again. Beck's discs are all unique. Some people will describe this CD as his "country disc", and it is true there are some country chords here and there but acoustic guitar does not make country. Don't be turned off to this album if you don't like country music, this is Beck music, NOT country music.
My head is a jumbled mess. So is this review. So is this album. If you read this review you no doubt had to re-read a bunch of stuff to understand it. You will have to re-listen to Stereopathetic Soulmanure MANY times in order to understand it. If you aren't strapped for cash buy this album. If your funds are a little tight right now buy it used or search froogle.com. It is an experience you don't want to miss.

4.0 out of 5 stars the messy beck album Sept. 27 2003
Format:Audio CD
i remember seeing this at a cd shop in 1994. being as how beck's mellow gold was such a big deal to me (i was 14 or 15 at the time and had never heard anything like it before). i had to have anything beck. so of course i picked this up. at first i only kinda liked it but after time i came to love this one alot. this is basicly just a bunch of older beck stuff nicely put together on one disc (which is a good thing. early beck stuff is amazing and i only hope that some day more stuff like this will be put out on a major label). this cd has rowboat of course which oddly enough was covered by the late johnny cash. while this album is in no way a classic. it does have tracks that have become fan favorites (satan gave me a taco, one foot in the grave, rowboat, etc).
on a side note: some copies of this album have an extra track (a really long, weird, interesting, funny track that is really far out as the kids like to say :)
well anyway if your a beck fan this is a must have (of course then again what isn't)
