436 Beck - Sea Change

The Review

I have actually listened to this album three times. Which I know is against the rules but each time after listening I didn't write the review and by time I came back to it I couldn't remember what I wanted to say.

That pretty much sums up the album really. It is very enjoyable to listen to and has some great tracks but once it is over you just sort of forget it.

This album is a good album to work to as its mellow tones do drift into the background allowing you to enjoy it while it doesn't really distract you from what you are doing. (Apart from a few moments at the end of Sunday Sun) However that also means it's not an album that grips you and grabs your attention.

I am not sure I could ever just sit and listen to this album while not doing anything else ... there is not quite enough there to hold on to me.

Why Does This Review Exist?

I am working my way through Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of all time list and reviewing each album.

  • Each album is listened to only once.
  • The album is used as background music while working so how much attention I pay to it will depend on what I am doing at the time.
  • I do no research about the album or the artist.
  • The review is a one off, one moment opinion that may change with further listening.
