7/10 Gregor Omelasz 10th February 2017
By no means a perfect record, but damn it all if it isn't funky as hell. The main issue I have with it is pacing, feels like it should've been 15 minutes shorter than it actually is. Besides, The Information is even longer but has a much better pace to it. Nevertheless, there are some gems in here even if throwaways come more often than not. Let's be honest, Beck has always tried to reinvent himself with record he brings out, and this one is no exception, it's just that it gets a little tiring after a while, almost as if it's trying to entertain you with the same track more than once.
