Lovely album, great production by the esteemed Nigel Godrich.
I remember listening to it at the time and marvelling at the velvety sheen of the produced sound.
As Beck himself acknowledged in interviews at the time it was an artistic response to a break-up with his girlfriend and also something of a homage to John Martyn and Nick Drake's aesthetic.
Maybe it should have been released on vinyl only, on the Island label. Preferably the pink label imprint.
It really works well alongside Mutations and One Foot In The Grave, and is a stark sonic contrast to Odelay and most of the rest of his output.
