Hailed as "the best album Beck has ever made," LP Features "Guess I'm Doing Fine" & "Lost Cause"

Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 436/500!

Beck's DGC/Geffen/Interscope catalog is being reissued by UMe on vinyl. The first albums to be reissued on 140g vinyl include 1996's Odelay, 2002's Sea Change, and 2005's Guero.

Beck's seventh album, Sea Change, was produced by Nigel Godrich. The album peaked at #8 on the Billboard 200 and was widely praised upon release in 2002. Rolling Stone's David Fricke hailed it as "the best album Beck has ever made". The album produced the singles "Guess I'm Doing Fine", and "Lost Cause". The outtake "It's All In Your Mind" from his album "One Foot In the Grave", was re-recorded for the album Sea Change. It's this version that is more widely known.

"Beck has always been known for his ever-changing moods -- particularly since they often arrived one after another on one album, sometimes within one song -- yet the shift between the neon glitz of Midnite Vultures and the lush, somber Sea Change is startling, and not just because it finds him in full-on singer/songwriter mode, abandoning all of the postmodern pranksterism of its predecessor. What's startling about Sea Change is how it brings everything that's run beneath the surface of Beck's music to the forefront, as if he's unafraid to not just reveal emotions, but to elliptically examine them in this wonderfully melancholy song cycle. If, on most albums prior to this, Beck's music was a sonic kaleidoscope -- each song shifting familiar and forgotten sounds into colorful, unpredictable combinations -- this discards genre-hopping in favor of focus, and the concentration pays off gloriously, resulting in not just his best album, but one of the greatest late-night, brokenhearted albums in pop. This, as many reviews and promotional interviews have noted, is indeed a breakup album, but it's not a bitter listen; it has a wearily beautiful sound, a comforting, consoling sadness. His words are often evocative, but not nearly as evocative as the music itself, which is rooted equally in country-rock (not alt-country), early-'70s singer/songwriterism, and baroque British psychedelia. With producer Nigel Godrich, Beck has created a warm, enveloping sound, with his acoustic guitar supported by grand string arrangements straight out of Paul Buckmaster, eerie harmonies, and gentle keyboards among other subtler touches that give this record a richness that unveils more with each listen. Surely, some may bemoan the absence of the careening, free-form experimentalism of Odelay, but Beck's gifts as a songwriter, singer, and musician have never been as brilliant as they are here. As Sea Change is playing, it feels as if Beck singing to you alone, revealing painful, intimate secrets that mirror your own. It's a genuine masterpiece in an era with too damn few of them." - Stephen Thomas Erlewine, allmusic.com
