Beautifully crafted songs. The sound quality is truly outstanding on this pressing. One of the best sounding albums in my collection.
One of my favorite albums. Lovely songs from Beck. No issues with my copy at all, great quality.
My copy says Manufactured in Germany by the Pallas Group but it also says Made in USA.Superb pressing. Very quiet.
I bought this LP from Amazon US and I received a very bad pressing of this LP - it skips a lot on both sides which is really unbearable to listen to. It doesn't say pressed by Pallas at the back so I guess stay away from non-german pressed version of LP.
This is a great piece of music. Not many words after SEA CHANGE. This record is one of the best in 2010-2020 decade. Beck is full of energy. And 'energy' does not mean 'power'.....'energy' many times in music equals feelings...even soft feelings. This album is full of feelings...full of dreams..... sensitivity...full of that "energy". Thanks Mr. (Beck) Hansen!
Beautifully crafted album, a must have for the pure relaxing, atmospheric guitar and vocals. Very chilled out and moody, in the same vein as Sea Change.
One of those modern classics. Even if you aren't a Beck fan, this is worth a listen. It's a hefty LP and seems to be a quality pressing. It's also a lovely album cover. Would have been nice as a gatefold with additional content, but it's really the music you are after on this one.
I bought a US pressing of this album just recently and love it. I see some comments about surface noise, but my copy seems to be fine. It is quiet music, especially for Beck, so might be worth the investment in a German copy if the US version really is this hit and miss.
Beck and his love of AOR - adult oriented rock and flake funk.
HELP . . . My husband is incarcerated and inmates are only allowed CASSETTE tapes which have to be NEW & SEALED . . . what a joke our penal system is . . . I want to send him Beck's Morning Phase and Stephen Marley's Mind Control but they must be in cassette format, new and sealed. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. hit me at [email protected]
just record a cassette and wrap it in saran.
I got my LP copy off a record store in Washington DC. Paid a hefty $24 for it which is way more of what I'm willing to shell out for vinyl these days (yes I'm probably cheap), however given my choices, not much of an alternative either. Any serious vinyl collector will know that finding a record with a dead quiet surface is as rare as hen's teeth, even on brand new shrink wrapped vinyl. However this one is, something I'm ecstatically happy about. You should look for the words "Pressed by Pallas Group" or similar on the back sleeve's fine print. Pallas is a German pressing facility and given the fame of the Germans, they don't skimp on the quality control and manufacture and it shows on this record. I won't comment on the music itself as I think there are plenty of sources to sample it online and, well, if you are reading this, you are probably a Beck fan anyway.
$24 is cheaper than vinyl was 20 years ago dude.
I ordered the vinyl in January 2014 and got a first release pressing. The sound is excellent but the vinyl quality is clearly lacking. Endless ticks and pops. This use of either cheap vinyl or dirty stampers is endemic in the US. My suggestion is to return crap quality vinyl as often as possible. There is no other or better way to send a message to the labels-- that when they charge $25 or more for an LP they have a responsibility to provide decent quality control. Pressing plants like United and Rainbo have an abysmal track record. Certain indy labels like Merge records seem wholly unconcerned with the quality of their products and I've nearly given up purchasing vinyl from them as it's VERY bad 90% of the time. I buy hundreds of LP's per year and the patterns of poor quality become obvious at that level. Pressers like QRP and Pallas somehow manage to produce consistently excellent quality releases where you will get a clean quiet pressing at least 90% of the time.If you want vinyl to prosper as a format then my advice is to return every bad copy of any LP you purchase. Demand quality or they will continue to sell you crap with a smile. I've spoken to some label executives (who will remain nameless) who flat out believe we're suckers for buying vinyl at all and actually think that most of their customers could care less about the quality of the vinyl and simply buy their LP's for the covers. Truth is they just don;t care because they do not get enough returns. Beck has more control over his product than most artists and it's extremely disappointing that something as beautiful as Morning Phase is pressed on cheap vinyl by manufacturers that obviously don't give a crap about their final products.
@ WesHeadley I live in Europe and ordered what I thought was the European edition through Amazon UK. Turns out that I got the US pressing?! But it is still manufactured and pressed in EU/Pallas.Are you sure that your copy isn't as well? I know that US pressings often are made East/West coast, but this is probably an all EU pressing?
Dude I agree, been going through this problem with almost every record I've purchased lately and it's seriously making me want to quit vinyl all together. RTI and Pallas are usually pressed well but I haven't noticed great pressings outside of those two companies. SST and Touch and Go press some good ones too, usually anything remastered by Steve albini is a winner. But the majority of vinyls I get seem lousy it is a real shame.
I was referring to the US pressed copy. If you have a high resolution system you won't enjoy the music nearly as much on an album like this when there is a backdrop of constant ticks and pops from beginning to end. Like I said-- return them-- it's the only way to get the message across that we expect sound manufacturing processes to be used. Plants like United and Rainbo play games with the labels-- they do deliver quiet test pressings-- I've heard quite a few-- and then once you sign off on them they go back and knock off a bunch of crap pressings as fast and as cheaply as they can. Bait and switch is a way of life for many of these record pressing companies. GZ Vinyl is another example of a company generally unconcerned with quality control-- and they hide behind that "made in the EU" label but are careful not to show their name on the package-- as most serious buyers know, they produce a LOT of crap with the occasional good result.
I agree wholeheartedly. i'd like to see the media bring attention to this problem. All the subpar pressings are ruining the argument that brought the popularity of vinyl back in the first place. that vinyl sounds superior is a joke now.
It says that it was pressed at Pallas, which I believe is in Germany.
Love this record. Great sounding vinyl, although not as quiet as I'd like it to be with noticeable and annoying pops in some places.
LP was mastered by Bernie Grundman at Bernie Grundman Mastering.
I'm (very) pleased with this LP. Good record, very good pressing. Beck is cashing in on the old recipes of Sea Change but so what - that's fine with me, it gives us a new Beck album to listen to, Sea Change had become a little old by now. Some tracks sound more mature than Sea Change in fact. Happy happy.(PS : I wish Capitol would re-press some of the Radiohead vinyl vaults series in this same quality standard).
anyone know how limited of a run this is? had to actually special order thru my local record store, was surprised they ran out of copies so quickly.
A gorgeous album. As implied by the title, it's perfect morning music. Great for bedtime as well.It is flawed in some ways - most notably, too many parallels to Sea Change, and several melodies and chord changes sound directly lifted from other artists. Then again, being a Beck record raises my expectations to a perhaps unfair degree.I was afraid upon discovering it was just a single LP that it would sound totally smashed. Not so; it does sound quite rich and clear despite 23+ minute-long sides. Packaging is a bit disappointing - for almost $30 (including shipping) I would've expected better than a flimsy outer jacket and the inner sleeve, while plastic-lined, was already splitting on arrival. But the disc itself is very well done.
Already out of print? Dang! I knew I should have bought it for $19.99 when I had the chance. Smh.
It's not oop, amazon.ca has loads of it at a good price.
I really haven't dug into this album seriously yet, but after a few listens I've gotta say that it's a cool listen. Mostly laid-back, mellow songs with a few flourishes mixed in...I don't want to necessarily compare it to Beck's other albums, but saying that it has the same mood as Sea Change is not off-base. I think I'll definitely find myself returning to this one!I have the regular-ol' vinyl US issue (I don't think there were any special editions or anything like that, though) that's 180 gram. I haven't given this a listen on digital media yet, so I can't really compare, but I think it's got an extremely clear, warm sound. Fears that the album wouldn't sound good on a 1-LP release were, I think, premature.
It sounds very cool to my ears. It reminds me SEA CHANGE,Lovely sound!
This is yet another great album from Beck, and a more than decent follow-up to his 2002 classic Sea Change. The pressing is first rate...and hats off for placing the album in a very nice protective innersleve. Overall sound quality is just amazing. I rate this album a strong 4 stars.
Quick review after a few listens: The A-side is forgettable. The B-side is significantly more interesting. With a few exceptions, every track is better than the last -- the album starts with a low bar and moves up from there. The final few tracks are excellent.As far as sound quality goes, it is great -- ignore the 2xLP snobs. Though one of the A-side tracks could have easily been cut to provide a little more space and I don't think anyone would have missed anything.
