Beck – “Coolest Scientologist in Music”


Riding on the wave of the apathy, angst, and disenchantment of the early 1990s music scene, Beck’s Loser struck a familiar note with the youth of that time. Pessimistic, detached, and self-deprecating, his songs reflected the mood of the time in a place where corporate culture was (like it is today) ubiquitous and inescapable. Suggested by many that he’d be a “one-hit wonder”, Beck managed to pump out album after album of genre-bending music ranging from country to hip-hop and all points in between.

Tom Slater of Spiked Online reviews Beck’s latest release, Modern Guilt, in: Modern Guilt: Beck to the Future.
