Plays (last 30 days):
You sang your swan song to the dogs
'Cause they made mincemeat of the dreams you hung your hopes on
So you cut it out, well your sins cost
While money talks to your conscience, looking like a fool for love

Dear life, I'm holding on
Dear life, I'm holding on
How long must I wait
Before the thrill is gone

You drove your Rolls into the swamp
You stole away like a thief, reeling from the sticker shock
Of the price they put upon your soul
You buy it back from the burning ashes of the devil you know

Dear life, I'm holding on
Dear life, I'm holding on
How long must I wait
Before the thrill is gone

Dear life, come and pick me up
Dear life, I think the button's stuck
Dear life, I think it's gone too far
Dear life, please lower the bar
Lower than the stars

Dear life, I'm holding on
Dear life, I'm holding on
How long must I wait
Before the thrill is gone

catchy tune, reminds me of Elliot Smith's Figure 8 album 
At last year's Grammys, he was hanging out and party hopping with Paul McCartney.  Sir Paul's style certainly rubbed off...
Late Beatles guitar in there mix with a little Billy Preston. Can ya hear it?

In follow-up I bought this one, along with Robert Plants latest "Carry Fire."  Talk about yer whip-lash set of music to listen to over the holidays, eh?  Anyway, over all this latest CD out of Beck ain't bad, in a pop'ish kind'a way.  I'd recommend it.
Indeed. Ear-catching. Sounds like George Harrison guitars. And Abbey Road chorale vocals.

Nothing like some NEW BECK, and I am excited by it! I can't get enough of that atmospheric soundscape there at the end. Beck rocks!
GOLD
He's re-invented himself yet again, and sounds great. I look forward to hearing more of his new stuff!

This played nicely right after side two of Abbey Road. Had a definite Leon Russell/Concert for Bangladesh vibe to it.

Nice chord changes..
Pretty cool.  That "bouncy" piano bit at the beginning made me think he may have had Ben Folds playing on this album.  I guess it's Greg Kurstin; he's a busy guy these days.
More new stuff!
{#Devil_pimp} this guy never stops impressing ! zesty
Pretty Cool New BECK!   Looking forward to seeing him live in few weeks opening for U2
New Beck, YES!!! Thank you Bill.
New Beck!
