This is an interesting one... I haven't heard it a whole lot of times. I rarely listen to it, because it is incredibly mellow. This is melancholy on a disk... and that's why I like it so much.
In case you've only heard Beck's sample-heavy radio hits ("Where It's At," "Sexx Laws," "Loser," etc.), this isn't your normal Beck Hansen. This is all acoustic, sample-free, and backed by strings. And it's really dark.
This album is what really turned me into a fan of Beck's. Yeah, I liked some of the Odelay stuff. It's an excellent album. Here, Beck ditched the expectations and used a vehicle that is absolutely perfect for the message he was trying to get across.
And that's what good art is.
