140-gram vinyl reissue

Charted No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200

Universal Music Enterprises is reissuing Beck's entire DGC/Geffen/Interscope catalog on 140-gram vinyl. The first records slated for reissue are 1996's Odelay, 2002's Sea Change, and 2005's Guero. Sea Change will be released as a double LP and Guero "will be made available for the first time as a single LP.

Reissues for Mellow Gold, Mutations, Midnight Vultures, The Information, and Modern Guilt are also forthcoming.

Beck kept fans and critics guessing about how he'd follow up Sea Change and in 2005 he released the genre-mashing Guero which shot to No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 — his highest charting album to date. Beck's eighth album saw him reuniting with the Dust Brothers with an assist from producer Tony Hoffer (Midnite Vultures), for a tour de force of Latin rhythms, rhymes, guitars, beats, samples, 8-bit electronics, turntables and vocoder for a fun and freewheeling ride through rock, hip-hop, boss nova, country-blues and soul.

The album opener and lead single, "E-Pro" went to No. 1 on the Billboard Modern Rock Chart, while "Girl," "Hell Yes," "Go It Alone" (featuring Jack White on bass) and more became instant fan favorites. The album was a hit with critics as well, with New York Magazine enthusing, "Beck integrates his personae into a fairly seamless whole, and his knack for synthesizing disparate musical elements (hip-hop, robot funk, blues, country, jazz, garage rock, etc.) extends beyond samples and individual tracks. The songs migrate smoothly from one to the next; there aren't any throwaway numbers to sabotage the album's momentum; the whole thing coheres," while Rolling Stone dubbed it "his liveliest and jumpiest music in years."
