After hearing a few songs from and seeing the cover of Morning Phase, the first thought that came to my head was "this reminds me of Sea Change (another album of his)." I also have a tendency to think parenthetically, but that's not the point. The point is, I wasn't far off, as a press release stated that the album in intended to be a "companion piece" to Sea Change, which I'm not entirely sure how I feel about. On one hand, Sea Change is my favorite Beck album, but on the other, I would really like to see him do something completely different, which he usually does. I will say that what I have heard so far is different enough, but I'll wait until I hear the full album (and probably give Sea Change another listen) to make a final judgment.
Let us know about some of the releases that you've been excited about in the comments!
