Morning Phase

Beck - 2014

I just had the misfortune of hearing this album once more. I’m sorry but I find the entire thing to be terribly disappointing. The dreamy, washed-out music is pleasant enough I suppose but the album drifts along endlessly. It is without any real sense of purpose or direction. There are no highs or lows and unfortunately, the lazy mood here matches the songwriting. You get the feeling that without Beck’s illustrious career to back this album, Morning Phase might never have made it past the demo stage. In truth, it does little to bolster his robust catalog and remains merely forgettable at best. #MostlyHarmless
