Album

Sea Change is the eighth studio album by American musician Beck, released on September 24, 2002 by Geffen Records. Recorded over a two-month period in Los Angeles with producer Nigel Godrich, the album features themes of heartbreak and desolation, solitude, and loneliness. For the album, much of Beck's trademark cryptic and ironic lyrics were replaced by simpler, more sincere lyrical content. He also eschewed the heavy sampling of his previous albums for live instrumentation. Beck cited the breakup. On Sea Change, Beck sounds intentionally world-weary, but it's the songs themselves that sound labored. Is it no longer enough for Beck to write profound, genre-bending tunes that stand on their own Does he really need the crutch of suffocating overproduction and bold strokes of orchestration to shock us into caring again. Given how much soul-searching obviously went into this record, it's distressing how little soul the finished product actually has. If there's anything the self-absorbed murk of Sea Change illustrates with unmistakable clarity, it's that Beck has forgotten how to connect with his inner loser- and it's nobody's fault but his own. Sea Change. Released September 24, 2002. Sea Change Tracklist. The Golden Age Lyrics. Though Sea Change has become a quite common expression, the title of the album could also be a direct reference to Shakespeares play The Tempest, in which the character Ariel sings: Full fathom five thy father lies: Of his bones are coral made: Those are pearls that were his eyes: Nothing of him that doth fade But doth suffer a sea-change Into something rich and strange. Sea Change Q&A. Beck has always been known for his ever-changing moods - particularly since they often arrived one after another on one album, sometimes within one song - yet the shift between the neon glitz of Midnite Vultures and the lush, somber Sea Change is startling, and not just because it finds him in full-on singersongwriter mode, abandoning all of. the postmodern pranksterism of its predecessor.

Written by Beck Hansen in Sea Change 2002 Geffen Records Put your hands on the wheel Let the golden age begin Let the window down Feel the moonlight most of you Beck is known as the musical chameleon who mixes a huge array musical styles, to create alternative pop that is highly unique. In this album however, there is a different side of singer-songwriter Beck as opposed to Beck the sonic contortionist. It's a more emotional on his voice and his acoustic guitar.

I've loved Beck for years now and own nearly all of his albums that I can get my hands on in order to help support him. When it came to legitimately owning Sea Change, an album I've loved for years but never owned in a physical format, I wanted a better quality than a CD quality recording could give. I'm not a vinyl guy, so hi-res digital is the way to go for me. First, a bit about my quest to actually find this

Anyone has compared the MoFi Pink version with the earlier MoFi Black one? I was wondering why a more recent and coloured version would be pretty more expensive than the previous version... Did they press less of the pink one? Any other explanation? Thanks...
Netlandinhabitant
They only pressed a little over 1,000 pink copies back in 2012, while there are a few thousands (over 5,000 I think) black copies. The black vinyl version was in print for about 5 years.
Gajurus
Trying to purchase this vinyl Beck _Sea of Change for my audiophile bf i have no idea what pressing to get him I dont care abotu the money if its worth it but he will know, and i dont want to get the wrong one, what version of Sea of Change - Beck do i get? What specific pressing?
Global Progression
If you're still looking and your bf is an audiophile, the MoFi pressing is easily going to be the best, but is also the most expensive.
Alsardin
I just bought the 2016 DGG reissue and it sounds great!
Gugrel
Looking for a cover in NM- condition if anyone's willing to sell. Left my copy sealed for too long and it developed seam splits.
Agarus
I've owned this record numerous times throughout my collecting years, and can say without a shadow of a doubt, it's definitely in my top 5 best sounding records. If you want me to believe the $20 reissue is of the same quality, be my guest....you are all suspect. I'm guessing it's from all the jealous folks that don't even own a copy of it. Nonetheless, I thank all of you for the driving the prices down on this release so I can afford to buy it once again.
Foxanayn
Man, you are so freaking cool but you don't need me to tell you that!
Anarus
I don't care what anyone says - the MFSL pressing is dirt. This even in comparison to a Spotify stream. Physically, yes it's a nice pressing - zero complaints there, quality stuff indeed. But tonally, it's just plain wrong. The opening chords on Golden Age sound like it's being played on an Ovation guitar - which is to say no longer acoustic and organic sounding, but of a plastic and artificial timbre. Also, the sense of space apparent on other versions of this recording is somehow drastically missing. For those about to questions my playback system, don't bother. It's good enough and I know its nuances and drawbacks well enough. If indeed the current cheaper pressing is of the same provenance I'd give that a miss too and stick with Spotify/ Tidal etc if you've got them. All in all, sounds like it was mastered by someone with compromised high frequency hearing impairments. Avoid. Mine will be up for sale shortly.
Mogelv
very confused at this. even in a youtube compressed mp3 upload, the MFSL sounds more open and natural than the other digital versions = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R82k5Mb9Jzk&list=PLpBjMzLwHO1_I1VK_UXLWWsDnIAM-sEYj&index=1
Siralune
The Tidal version is absolutely blown out of the water by the MFSL.
Teonyo
As a longtime member of the Steve Hoffman forums, I can accurately say that this pressing is of highest quality and is a great alternative to the overrated and overpriced MFSL repressings. If you love this album so much that you feel the need to pay $300+ for a trumped-up "high fidelity" pressing, then have at it. A fool and his money are soon parted, etc.Think of how many more records you could buy with $300 if you only paid $20 for this pressing..
Uris
Hm, I don't know. I think it depends on your system. I paid $200 for my copy and don't regret it.
Gamba
I don't think it is. It doesnt say MoFi in it's matrix. The Vinyl Me Please version of Pinkerton is a MoFi pressing and they did not say anything about it, but you can tell from the matrix.
Dagdage
It may be a "great alternative" to the MoFi, but unfortunately, it's not a better sounding version. ;)
Drelalak
Anyone looking into the new 2016 edition compared to the MFSL should look on the forums for reliable info rather than the conflicting information here. In particular, on the Steve Hoffman forum. Comments left here may not be particularly reliable....
Cordanara
Just confirmed with a UME rep that the exact same individual reels that were used for the MFSL pressing were used with this year's Sea Change repressing. So essentially, you are hearing the exact same thing on both pressings, because they were both sourced from the same reels. Anyone claiming that this new pressing is "inferior" is just attacking a straw man, I'm afraid..
spark
if the pressings are identical, does that mean the 2016 pressing has the uncut analog tape delay at the end of Golden Age + the drummer count down at the start of Paper Tiger + the weird autotuned laughing at the end of bonus track Ship in a bottle ?
Mr_TrOlOlO
Trumpduck Just confirmed with a UME rep that the exact same individual reels that were used for the MFSL pressing were used with this year's Sea Change repressing. So essentially, you are hearing the exact same thing on both pressings, because they were both sourced from the same reels. Anyone claiming that this new pressing is "inferior" is just attacking a straw man, I'm afraid.. Congrats for your longtime member, but the reels is not only the important thing in the sound of the vinyl. The quality pressing it´s very important too, where it was pressed and the engineer who cut the lacquer. The cheap edition it´s not from the same press plant, Mofi was press at RTI and the lacquer was cut by Rob LoVerde (RML), the cheaper edition was pressed by Optimal and the lacquer was cut by John Golden.So sorry but it´s not the same quality sound...
Frey
They are two completely different masterings. The MFSL is the only all-analog cut of this album (ten years ago they actually got those individual reels and spliced them together in order to cut four sides of the album). The new pressing is not straight from the tapes and it's not AAA. It comes from pre-mastered digital files just like the original issue.
Grari
Just bought the 2016 reissue of Sea Change and compared it to this Mobile Fidelity version on professional high-end equipment. They are practically indistinguishable, right down to the artwork itself.SAVE YOUR MONEY, vinyl enthusiasts. No need to pay hundreds of dollars for this version when you can now get virtually the same thing for about $20USD.
Arith
A repress from Interscope is due on October 28, 2016.
Iell
So happy to hear that! Thanks for sharing. Been wanting this for awhile without selling the farm.
Bliss
I don't know the brandname of the custom drums & especially from the snare drum (Ludwig, Gretsch or Slingerland..) or what kind of mics they used in recording but this is....ONE OF THE BEST & WARMEST VINTAGE SNARE DRUM SOUNDS I VE EVER LISTENED IN MY LIFE from a hi-fi source!
Bradeya
Chasing this snare sound has been one of my biggest recording challenges since I first heard it in '02. It may be my favorite all-time snare. Dry, tight and punchy, pure perfection!
Llbery
listening again to this pressing after a year or so hiatus. it just gets better and better...think I've played my copy 5-6 times now and i'm sure it sounds better now than 1st/2nd listen. absolutely phenomenal pressing. I have the original pressing too and just played that afterwards and the difference in quality is astounding, and the original pressing isn't bad. pay £100 for the standard OG press or £200 for the MFSL ? I know what I'd do.
Macill
I have acquired a mint promo copy without any numbering.. The record pressings themselves are incredible. The sound after experiencing this album only ever in a digital format simply put, is magical. This is one is a Crown jewel of a record. My advice, save your money, pay the exorbitant after market price and invest in this sonic wonder.
Whitegrove
Does anyone have any idea how many of these were pressed? Mine is in the 500s so at least that many - 1000? 2000?
Rollers from Abdun
hmm mine is 5220, so probably more than 3000 ;)
Kuve
Mine is 3582, so I guess more than 3582 were made. It is a fantastic record.
Dancing Lion
Mine's 2621 so at least 3000. But I got it late so it could be just 3000.
Macage
One of the smoothest moments..... for my brain & my soul.
Fenius
This is probably the best sounding record I own. The direct two inch tape to vinyl transfer makes for an insanely warm and personal sound. Almost as if he's sitting in the living room with you. I highly recommend this pressing over the original pressing which is thin and sonically disappointing. I've still yet to hear the very rare and very expensive SACD of this album, but I can't imagine it sounds better than this magical version. Do yourself a favor and add this beautiful pressing to your collection if you want to know what it would sound like if Beck played these songs in your house.
