Beck occupies a very particular place in the pantheon of musical greats. He's an alternative rock star, somewhere between mainstream and underground. Relevant. Engaging, too. But not overexposed. With 'Loser' (1994), early in his career, it looked like the American could/would/wanted to become the voice of his generation. But Beck chose adventure. With great taste and nerve, he carved a path for himself through musical periods and genres. No two albums the same, not one album second rate. Beck is invariably popular among his peers, and that’s also the back story to his latest album, ‘Hyperspace’ (2019) – it all started with an invitation from Pharrell Williams to guest for N.E.R.D. and ended with Beck making a record. Note carefully: the man is a pedigree performer and every concert is one gigantic party.
