"Acid casualty with a repossessed car," croaks Beck Hansen. "Vietnam vet playin' air guitar... 'Odelay' would later herald Beck as pre-Millennial jester without compare, but 1993's 'Mellow Gold' finds Beck slumming in The City of Angels, working in a video store for four dollars an hour. Quite rightly, he's got the blues, but there's plenty more besides. 'Mellow Gold' is a grimy Polaroid of fried white-trash invention. Reconciling the painfully fashionable grunge aesthetic with the drunken verbiage of the Beat Generation, 'Mellow Gold' founded the slacker generation, and "Loser"--the opening track--became its unofficial anthem. A concept album of sorts, 'Mellow Gold' narrated the backdrop of Los Angeles as seen from the bottom of the dustbin, framed with the impoverished strains of fractured, missing-stringed folk and ramshackle white-boy hip-hop. Time would prove, though, that Beck was no slacker; 'Mellow Gold' provided the scrawled blueprint for Beck's next major label album, 'Odelay' which would prove one of the defining albums of the 1990s.
