Shirt: Beck - Mutations

Source: In 1998 i was working one of my favorite jobs in my life, working at a record store in Sacramento called the Beat. It really in hindsight was a dream job for me. all i did all day was listen to music, cruise through records, and people brought in piles of music they didn’t want for me to go through and buy! it was fucking amazing. during this period of my life i remember a distinct few records that came out during that time that really stick in my head. People seemed to bum on it at the time. a lot of people i think because it was straight off the heels of Odelay and such a pop record this is not what they were expecting.
To me it was the exact opposite..he came back with something just as good as Odelay just different, and im sure now 15 years later most people will agree this is one of his best records, and really solidified him as a great musician. someone who wasn’t a one hit wonder and someone who wasn’t going to be pigeonholed as a rock or pop guy but as a musician.
So fucking good for you Beck. i bet at the time this was not an easy record to get past the label and managers but you had a vision and went for it. doing what you feel is right, going with your gut is way harder that it seems. people will think you are a dick, or grumpy or unreasonable..but you are just doing what you think is right for you. it worked.
as for you being a Scientologist lets just say i will look the other way until you come back to earth on this matter.
