"Adam Mast's Top 15" by Best Albums of 1999 (2000)
Beck's Odelay was certainly one of the best albums of the decade. The jump he made from Mellow Gold to that record was astonishing. Last year he put out an album called Mutations, a terrific record that would whet our apetites until he could finish the true folow up to Odelay. Well Beck fans, we can all rejoice because Midnite Vultures is here.
Midnite Vultures will, no doubt, be dismissed by many as a mere novelty record, but it's not. This is a highly innovative record that fuses funk, alternative, and techno with spectacular results. Although this doesn't have the trippy sampling that the Dust Brothers supplied on Odelay, it still has a similar style and it's easy to see who Beck's musical heroes are. With the rocking "Milk and Honey," the energetic "Sex Laws," and the fantastic ode to the 70s ballad "Debra," Beck has fashioned a unique masterpiece that flows with one original track to the next.
