Woke up this morning, found a love light in the storm
Looked up this morning, saw the roses full of thorns
Guns are falling, they don't have nowhere to go
Oceans of diamonds always shine, smooth out below

Can we start it all over again this morning?
I lost all my defenses this morning
Won't you show me the way it used to be?

I've gone all around 'til there's nothing left to say
Wrote it all down into something that couldn't be said
I tore it all down and buried me underneath the wave

Can we start it all over again this morning?
I let down my defenses this morning
It was just you and me this morning
I fought all my guesses this morning
Won't you show me the way it could've been?

So ... you'd discriminate based on a person's religion?
I just came to say that the transition into this song from 99 Luftballons was smooth as hell.

You were oh so original in "going there".  Bold.  A true adventurer.

Yes Beck - do the "70s thing" while listening to Dark Side of the Moon
 
Completely different chord progression - not even vaguely similar, but don't let that ruin your narrative.  Apparently, every song was written by Pink Floyd anyhow, at least according to many listeners here.

Gorgeous transition from 99 Luftballons!!!  
 
Well I was just thinking how people get up themsleves about 'fashion'; Reading the comments of Nena's poppy little dittie compared to the reverential, existentialist comments about this dirge is certainly a case of the Emperor's New Clothes.  It's just slower folks, and in english (and without the armpit hair), get over it, get international and most importanly, get a wider viewpoint!

I know the confliction you describe and (for me at least) I've resolved it by 1) remembering that Mr. Hansen has NEVER come to my door trying to 'convert' me and 2) having compassion for him and anyone else that I believe has been lead astray with any number of bullshit religions, etc. 

Once that clicks for you I think you'll find you're able to enjoy his tunes a bit better.  Heck, his post-breakup album (Sea Change) captures very well that 'lost love' feeling that we HUMANS endure from time to time, atheist/christian/scientologist/etc., alike. 

Long Live RP!!  OH...I have this one rated at 8....it's borderline 9 for me.

Hard to believe that this is the same guy that put out the horrendous album "Covers" in 2017.
 
Agree totally.  When I heard he and his band were playing in the Titanic Quarter in Belfast recently and it was being shown on TV I sat down to watch the show... Beck appeared on stage and proceeded to sing along to dance type songs.

Not what I was expecting at all - I thought I was watching somebody else {#Ask} 
Hard to believe that this is the same guy that put out the horrendous album "Colors" in 2017. Hope he gets back on track.
i want to like beck. like i want/should like radiohead. can't. just can't. mark knopfler is the master of laid back. this makes me snooze.

That's what I heard on the intro too, but a little bit slower... oh, Sweet Melissa!

Agree completely!
Has Beck re-invented the slo-mo song ? Sorry, just boring and lame IMHO
Becks dad arranged all the strings on this album. I wonder if he was paid?
Sounds like something from Fleetwood Mac's double-Bob era.
 
Becktacular!
Saw Beck for the first time this summer headlining Nashville's Pilgrimage Festival. I was surprised on how well his music came off live, as his songs have really high production values. Easily the best of the dozens of bands there.

(but I don't think it sounds like that) 
sorry but this is a worse copy of Asgeir s summer guest from the album In the silence. Folks if you like this kind of music I deeply recommend this guy from Island. He is just brilliant and his musicians and the sound is far better.

Some people are just constitutionally incapable of sparing us their drivel.  Fortunately Bill, like 7.5 out of 10 of us, likes Beck.

Love it.
This entire album is fabulous.

I think it's cool the way he revisits Golden Age; it hauntingly quadruples the quantum effects of the longing that resonate within Without

Beck is amazing.  {#Notworthy}
TY RP. BECK is Godlike. I love all his music. I could see this tune being a little slow for a hyper type; so try digging on Beck's other albums: Odelay, Mellow Gold would probably wake you up; Midnight Vulture will put you in a sexy way; Mutations is really good for Sunday morning. 
I am renewing my donation for your superb play tonight!!! Joe Cocker? I'm a Delta Lady living in Richmond, VA.

Just saw Beck last night here in Raleigh. What a talent, what a show, what a night.

Very similar. I thought it was a cover by a different band at first.
   Beck's whole album works really well as a complete work - difficult to cast fair judgement on just one track  {#Cheers}

The pipe, one would imagine. If one were so inclined.
Loving this song, solid album.
Very nice album! Love it!
This is my first time hearing this and it is really beautiful!!  My favorite elements are incorporated in this; love slide steel; optimistic lyrics; sure is bringing us back up after "to build a house"; Beck's voice is really relaxing also to listen to {#Roflol}

Beck has finally become what you never could have imagined during his Odelay/Mutations heyday:  boring.

I thought the same thing, but I really like both songs. He should mash them up live.
{#Sunny}
Peaceful 
Timeless.
{#Yawn}
Great stuff.  Album is a little depressing to listen to in one go, but each track stands up well, for me, between other stuff.

More like mourning, amirite?


Before Morning Phase and Sea Change, there was Tropicalia. This completes the trilogy, most excellently, in my opinion.
Solid album all the way through with strong theme underlying. Becks got the midas touch.
Bill, his name is not baaak, but Beck

Lovely sound and production, everything from Beck is a delight.
Beck is such a diverse musician.  Each of his songs are unique.
Yay, new Beck! I link it. Mellow.

How dare an artist revisit some of the best musical themes of their career.  It's like he thinks he has a sound or something.

Definitely taps the Golden Age vibe; that's not a bad thing. I always dig Beck's style details, smooth mood-building and recurring swoons.
Loved Sea Change, and this is obviously cut from the very very very same cloth. That, to me, makes it a bit unimaginative.  Regardless, I gave this song a 7 because I really do like the feel of his music. I just wish Beck would write songs in a key other than E Major.

Looking forward to hearing the whole thing, even though it does sound like he's consciously trying to recreate the previous album's sound.

Kinda waiting for the tune to get past the “I’ve so heard this before”, rut.


Yes, morning is snoozetime
