A candid late-’90s interview, journalist Neil Strauss and Beck discuss the motivations behind Mutations, the recording process, as well as interesting predictions for Beck’s future, some of which, now a decade later, have come to fruition. Enjoy.

  1. Maddest respect for Beck!

  2. nice. i actually just got the album and have only really listened to it on a few occasions, so this will be beneficial.

  3. Beck’s albums have always been monuments to not just the craft of songwriting, but the recording arts. Midnite Vultures definitely doesn’t get the respect it deserves, first for it’s daring, mashup direction, and second, for the mind-blowing depth and love put into its production.

  4. i’m afraid these files are long gone?

    Mutations is probably in my top 10 of all time – vastly underrated (or is it even to ‘rated’ status?).
