Beck's 1994 debut, Mellow Gold, is a stunner not just because of the songs themselves, but the ideas and aesthetic he employs throughout. Beck freely blends rock, rap, folk, country, industrial, garage, and numerous others into a delicious lo-fi whole. His lyrics are free associative but have sustained wit and humore in his imagery that keep them not just listenable but bursting with ideas. Just a cursory listen to Mellow Gold justifies its place as one of the pioneers of the 90's alternative revolution.

although i enjoyed the other albums of his, this one bit the dust. his creativity was lacking in the areas that it usually thrives. I hope that beck will make up the difference in an upcoming album if possible ,because i still se myself as a fan of beck, and would hate to see myself quit listening.

As the beggining of his integration with the mainstream, Mellow Gold is where any music fan should start with Beck. The songs on this album retain the uncomromised catchiness of his unreleased albums, with the extremely awsome accesabilty of his later efforts. This is definitely Beck's turning point and anyone with any self dignity should be packin' this cd in thier collection alongside Odelay and Mutations

Mellow Gold is proof that anyone with a four track and a sense of humor can record a ground-breaking album. There is no question that Beck is an extremely talented song writer, but the real lure of this album is it's lo-fi homegrown sound, and Beck's abiltity to blend folk, rock, rap and country together seamlessly. Although the second half does slow down a little bit, the listener will never tire of listening to the sardonic, cryptic lyrics.

The definitive Beck album, Mellow Gold combines the best of his early folk sound A Western Harvest Moon/Golden Feelings/One Foot in the Grave/ with the electronic sound he has developed more and more. A breakthrough album that will someday become a classic.
