I bought this CD Single simply for the simple reason that I loved the song, "LOSER"(at that time I was not a big Beck fan...I would come to my senses though and that changed). The lyrics to this song are simply beyond brilliant! This is the song that made the world aware of one of the best artists in the music industry today.
"CORVETTE BUMMER" has got a really good beat to it, while "ALCOHOL" has a cool pace to it and for the majority, is similar to MELLOW GOLD's "BLACKHOLE".
This version of "SOUL SUCKIN' JERK" is not a remix of the one you hear on MELLOW GOLD. More like just a different approach to the song using the same lyrics, but in a different music style. That, and it's a much longer version than the album version.
"FUME" is a great song. Awesome beat, great lyrics, and as usual with Beck and his last song, he has a little wait before going crazy on a melody.
I highly recommend this CD single to any Beck fanatic AND any music lover wanting to experiment!

Great deal for this EP. It's pretty common, so if you haven't picked it up already, you probably aren't a huge Beck fan. All 4 unreleased tracks are excellent. The standout is the remix of "soul suckin' jerk". It's sbout twice as long with the original with extra verses and additional instrumentation thrown into the mix. It's really not a remix at all, just a different version. "Fume" chronicles a joyride complete with the two things no traveler should be without: nitrous and molly hatchet. All songs would easily fit on to "Mellow Gold", and prominently feature Beck's pop sensibilities. That's it. It's only 5 songs, so that's all I'm writing. Buy it. It's worth it. Thank you. Good Night.

This EP is absolutely perfect, I bought this based on hearing "Loser" on the radio again recently, and the best song on here has to be "Corvette Bummer", can't see why it failed to get on the album."Gonna walk around this town with a can of whiskey, gonna fly like a bird..", and the reject version of "Soul Suckin' Jerk" is also superior to "MellowGold"'s version. "Fume" is also awesome, "Smokin' broken pencils and drinkin' a Coke" will make you just crack up. Put this one in your cd changer in your trunk for sure.

This is the second of two "Loser" singles available, and the weaker of the two in my opinion. The main reason I bought this was due to the appeal of one of the most infamously titled songs of all-time, "MTV Makes Me Want To Smoke Crack". I did not, however, know that there were two versions of the song. There's the one that appears here, and another from 1993 that was only released on its own 7" (a split with Bean). I have now heard both versions, and while what appears here is a re-recording and more polished, it does not do the original justice. Here, for the first 30 seconds it is (almost) identical, but then jumps into a piano-fronted, 60's kind of swing style song that features a lot of 'yeah's and a slower pace than the original. It's weird... even for Beck.

The other reason to buy this would be for "Totally Confused", a song that came from A Western Harvest Field By Moonlight--Beck's first album--as well as number of other places it's now available. It is particularly notable for the trio of female background vocalists: Rachel Haden, Anna Waronker and Petra Haden (who all appeared on "Steve Threw Up", amongst other places). "Corvette Bummer" is a great b-side as well; but it's featured on the other "Loser" single, so it doesn't add too much allure here.

My overall view on this disc is that it's certainly not as good as the other version (which features four exclusive b-sides, not two), while it's still an advisable purchase nonetheless. "MTV Makes Me Want To Smoke Crack" is a must-own song for every Beck fan, even if it could've (i.e. should've) been better had they stuck to the original's format and lyrics. (If you can somehow get a hold of the initial recording of "MTV", you will see what I mean.) And at the end of the day, you know whether or not you're willing to lay a couple extra dollars down for a couple of Beck b-sides, anyway. It's worth it.

Evidently, there are 2 versions of this single. I bought one way back in the day which has LOSER on it, accompanied by CORVETTE BUMMER and these two other UNBELIEVABLE songs! TOTALLY CONFUSED, a mellow song with (get this) a female back up singer, and one of Beck's greatest songs of all time--MTV MAKES ME WANT TO SMOKE CRACK, where Beck tears it up on the piano. You need to find this version of the single as well, because the songs on this particular version are really cool, but having a Beck collection at your home without MTV MAKES ME WANT TO SMOKE CRACK is like showing up at church naked...it's UNSPEAKABLE!

First of all, its an EP but it has LOSER on it which I already have. Then it also has SOUL SUCKIN JERK which I already have. So what am I paying for? Well first off, SOUL SUCKIN JERK is even better than the one you know (and that song was flippin awesome in the first place).
Well, consider a few things. How much of a BECK fan are you? Do you like the LOSER song? Are you into BECK because you just heard that E-PRO song on the radio?
I like the songs on here a whole lot, personally. I wouldn't have just bought this myself on a whim, I knew ahead of time that I wanted the songs... Like FUME. This is a very raw, old school BECK song, about locking yourself up in a vehicle with your friend and huffing gas to get high. This song has one of the greatest BECK hooks ever....

Theres a fume, in the truck
and I don't know if I'm dead
or what the f*ck

Great stuff. Beck doesn't sware like he used to. He used to sware alot. He had a lot more piss and fire in his songs, this stuff may seem very strange to new fish. CORVETTE BURNER is another raw rowdy peice and ALCOHOL is a folksy ONE FOOT IN type of song. If you've never heard the ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE album, this one may seem kind of strange too.
Beck has a lot of ultra rare stuff, B-sides, soundtrack cuts, indie records... One of these days it would be nice to see some sort of anthology be released. Theres so much great stuff by this loser.

As for this one, try and get it cheap, as it IS only three songs that you wouldn't be able to find else where.
