You may or may not be a fan of Beck. He is a Scientology challenge, for sure, and he’s made a lot of desultory music over the past 10 years or so. Is his relationship to the mothership to blame? I have no idea. Is he depressive? Apparently so.
What I do know is that the music on the first handful of records he made is great. Fantastically great. His album Stereopathic Soulmanure may well be his best, but we’re all free to argue about that. What can’t be argued is that “Satan Gave Me a Taco” is irresistible.
