5.0 out of 5 stars No sophomore slump here, April 14, 2010
This review is from: The Wild Hunt (Audio CD)
I've been a fan for about a year now, thankfully discovered his music (not very mainstream) from a friend and had the opportunity to see him live. It's a shame this artist isn't more well-known. In any case, this album is fantastic, exactly what I was expecting, and slightly more polished than his first album. Also the piano sneaks in here on the last track, which is a departure from his one-man-band guitarist lineup, and it's a beauty. Buy this album, you won't be disappointed, and check out his earlier stuff too if you're not familiar.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just what I was looking for, October 5, 2006
This review is from: The Information (Audio CD)
I'm actually a little shocked that many self-described Beck fans are writing neutral to negative reviews on this album. I've been a Beck fan for years, and I appreciate all his works, and upon first listen I was instantly hooked to this album, and regard it as one of his best works. There aren't many artists who can capture great harmonies while mixing folky guitar, strings, and electronic beats, yet Beck has mastered this, especially on this album, and a great deal of credit needs to be given to Nigel Godrich. This album is fresh, not tired, and is easily worthy of being labeled as one of his best.

For the reviewers who are giving this a negative reveiw based on Beck's supposed recent conversion to scientology, according to Wikipedia Beck's father has been a scientologist for over 35 years, and Beck has been around the religion for most of his life, so I wouldn't jump to conclusions that this is a scientology-inspired album, since he was technically a scientologist while recording all his albums. One's religion shouldn't affect how someone else feel's about their music, that's called bias.
