You’re never going to pigeonhole Beck. Coming out of nowhere in the early ’90s with his goofy ramshackle hybrid of folk guitars and hip hop beats, he had his biggest hit with his first single, “Loser.” But not content to be a one hit wonder, Beck followed up his early success with the cut-and-paste, sample masterpiece Odelay and it hits “Where It’s At”, “Devils Haircut”, and “The New Pollution”. Over the next 20 years Beck continued to experiment, gaining a reputation among critics and deep cut music fans, but never reaching the popularity of his early releases.
Now Beck is back with an album that seems to be designed for booty shakin’ and Billboard Chart dominance. While retaining a lot of his trademark idiosyncratic and off beat instrumentation, Colors is engineered for pop success.
