Beck once again proves himself to be a giant among men as the release of his new album The Information comes with an array of stunning music, never-been-done-before visuals and a groundbreaking live show.
Ever growing and expanding, Beck manages to stay familiar and fresh. First single Cell Phone's Dead starts with a climatic opening few bars that give way to a robotic keyboard riff with Beck's unique rapping over the top, instantly making the track recognisable as another Hansen masterpiece.
Strange Apparition takes a more traditional route and flows with a beautifully heavy piano riff. US single Nausea has a down and dirty rock feel to it and takes Guero's Black Tambourine to the next stage. The Nigel Godrich produced album, climaxes with the epic Horrible Fanfare/Landslide/Exoskeleton, thirteen minutes of dub infected eeriness, complete with the ghostly strains of Cell Phone's Dead echoing throughout as well as a bizarre appearance by the shipping forecast. Listen to the end to hear Dave Eggers and Spike Jonze talking about spaceships. Only on a Beck album.
And just to prove that Beck's imagination is not limited to his music, the album itself will come with a blank CD sleeve and a sheet of stickers for the listener to make their own sleeve.
