I found it, thanks. Going to give it a listen and write a review tomorrow. Then buy my copy on Friday.

Downloaded the torrent but I've ordered the limited vinyl too. Apparently he is on Jools Holland this week as well, hopefully it's ace and ill get to catch him on tour soon

On first listen the songs that stand out the most are the ones that were released by themselves earlier on. Up All Night is superb. I don’t know though. So far I get the feeling that Beck is trying to be someone he isn’t. I’m not overly taken with the new musical direction. I think I need to take the weekend to listen to the album properly before coming to a proper conclusion.

Rather boring album imo. Reminded me of The 1975, parts of it made me think of worse things (that godawful 3rd track was boybandy in a really unflattering way). On paper he was talking about this was a complex pop album that could do four things all at once, but sadly Beck isn't Xenomania or Basement Jaxx. Points for trying though. Maybe it'll grow on me I dunno.

I really really liked it... picked up the red vinyl yesterday. Thought about grabbing the yellow, indie record store exclusive vinyl, but oh how I adore red!

I rate it an 8.5 on first listen. The last three songs are just brilliant, such an incredibly strong finish to this record! Up All Night -> Square One -> Fix me

Haven't listened to Beck in years. Really fucking love it. Think I might have to break my budget and get it on vinyl. Think it'll grow on me more and more with each listen.

Saw them/him at Rock Werchter.

Wow...I nearly fell asleep. No energy, no purpose. Just come on, play your songs. Piss of again and collect your cheque.

Thanks very much, cheers.

Ignore my previous comments. The album is superb. Stand out tracks right now after a few days of listening:

I'm So Free
Dear Life
Up All Night
Colors (really good album opener)

Dreams is probably my least favourite track although it's still enjoyable.

I agree with the statement he's trying to be someone else, I feel that way too. It's an decent album, just doesn't sound like him. The album sounds a bit the same toward the end.

This is the third album in a row without serious rappin! I miss that.

Anyone else get a Weezer vibe from some of these songs? Weezer should cover Colors, that would be awesome.
