Beck’s latest offering Colors is a thoroughly impressive work
By Matt MacKenzie
Beck has had some amazing albums throughout his long and successful career. Albums like Sea Change, Odelay, and Guero took to the charts and brought a host of different emotions with them. Many hit songs came from these albums, such as “E-Pro” and its massive guitar rips to start the song off or “Massive Gold,” which elevated Beck to a new level in his career and got people to consider him a possible master artist in the future.
Colors introduces listeners to ten new songs that enter the mind and heart with a joyful and kind of peppy feeling to them all. It is a very strong lineup for the album, making it, in my opinion, one of the best albums released in 2017. Every song on Colors is high-caliber and makes me want to get up and move around. Songs like “Colors,” “Seventh Heaven” and “I’m So Free” just gives off the dancing vibe and makes me want to shake it. Beck’s voice in it is superb along with the backup of the band. The mix of the drums, bass and certain added sound effects, like hand clapping, make the songs seemingly perfect. I would highly recommend this album to all.
