“What a great record. Beck himself is really kind of a mad genius. I remember discovering him in the mid-‘90s, when a friend of mine came to me his acoustic EP, before the whole Loser thing. I thought, ‘Man, this guy is gifted.’
“And then when Loser came out, it was like, ‘Whoa, what the hell is this?’ It was so brilliant and so catchy. You could just tell that there was so much more to this guy that meets the eye.
“Midnight Vultures is definitely his most accomplished, most satirical, most tongue-in-cheek and most evolved work. You have everything on this album, from early ‘80s hip-hop to flat-out, sexual ‘70s revolution funk. Each song spoke to me. And to be honest, my least-favorite song is the single, Sexx Laws, which, ironically, was the whole reason I bought the record.
“Midnite Vultures is one of those albums I come back to every year, and I’ll listen to it for about two months straight. I’ll be cleaning house, and I’ll just start singing Milk & Honey. My wife will look at me like, ‘What the hell are you doing?’ [Laughs] It’s just so good. One of my favorite albums, by far.”
