I swear there's a lion growling at 0:48 and some Space Invaders type sound at 1:50.

I even love it more upon my 2nd listen than I did my first! I love it just as much as "E-Pro" when I first listened to that initially. However, nothing will ever touch "Think I'm In Love"...will always be my absolutely fave Beck track and so glad to witness him perform it at Hyde Park!

I think it's a pretty great track, the backing vocals and the piano at the end are superb. I can understand why some people aren't into it though.

Listening to Wow for the first time in a few days and I love it even more. What a track! I can't wait for his new album.

Oh....I wish I was in London! Unfortunately I missed out on Beck when he was here in Phoenix back in March.... Oh well...He should return here soon, especially to promote his new material!

FOLD festival has an offer of 2 tickets at the price of 1 = £63 for two, if anyone wants to take advantage of it. Saturday 25th June at Fulham Palace, London.

They must be struggling to sell them, with Beck playing his own shows two days later and appearing at Glasto and not much of a lineup apart from him and Chic. Feel a bit cheated that I got mine at full price now :x Still... it probably means there won't be too many people :P

Beck at Brixton Academy! Wow indeed!

I got there with a bunch of people I know from fan groups and we were the first in line. Waited for two hours in the rain but it was totally worth it as I was like the second or third person in the venue and got the best spot in the house - front row centre stage. Short of getting on the stage, there couldn't have been a better place to be :mrgreen:

Badly Drawn Boy supporting was a great surprise, as I like him a lot. He played a solo set including a Beck cover.

I saw Beck and the band at FOLD on Saturday and thought they were amazing, but they topped it at Brixton. An incredible set - Paper Tiger! Heart is a Drum! Wave!!! - and great atmosphere from the crowd. I watched Beck's set at Glasto and thought the crowd was terrible. He had a job to try and get them going. He was placed between Ellie Goulding and Coldplay and I think most people there didn't really know what to make of him. But Brixton was ready for him. Incredible show. Definitely my best Beck show to date and one of the best gigs ever. Can't wait for the new album to drop in the autumn and for him to come back again! :D

Where It's At - the encore - was a long medley that included One Foot in the Grave as well as covers from Chic, David Bowie, Kraftwerk and Prince.
