Info for The Information

Recording began on The Information in 2003, but wasn’t finished until early 2006. In the meantime, Beck would record and release both Guero and its remixed sister, Guerolito. Beck and producer Nigel Godrich would meet over the years—balancing between other projects—to plug away at the songs that would eventually become this record; the result of this extended genesis is perhaps Beck’s only album without its own singular identity. The production, however, is outstanding, and some of the songs are really there. “Think I’m In Love” is Beck’s most honest pop song, and “Cellphone’s Dead” touches on a lot of the funky electronic elements that worked so well on Midnite Vultures and Odelay. “Dark Star” has a great trip-hop groove. It all feels a little less focused than his usual efforts, but there are still more hits than misses on The Information.
