About this album

Midnite Vultures is the seventh (and fourth major-label) studio album by American alternative rock artist Beck, released in November 1999 by Geffen Records. Though similar to most of Beck’s previous albums in its exploration of widely varying musical styles, Midnite Vultures didn’t achieve the same blockbuster success as his breakthrough, Odelay, though it was still critically and commercially well received. Midnite Vultures reached #34 in the US, where it went gold, and also hit #19 in the UK. As of July 2008, Midnite Vultures has sold 743,000 copies in the United States. The album was praised by most critics; Rolling Stone, NME and Pitchfork Media gave it four-star reviews (8.5/10 on Pitchfork). It was awarded the status of ‘Universal Acclaim’ by Metacritic with a score of 83/100, but in 2006 was named the 50th ‘Worst Album Ever’ by Q, despite the fact that they gave the album four stars. Midnite Vultures was nominated in 2001 for Album of the Year at the 43rd Grammy Awards.

    a few bad tracks, but other than that this album is really solid. Why have I never listened to this guy much?

    Weird that two different people have associated this with Christmas, because I think of it as more of a summer album. By the way, from what I've read, the song "Miidnite Vultures" isn't on this album because it wasn't even written yet - Beck wrote it a year after the album came out because he needed more b-sides for a single, and just named it after the album because he couldn't think of a title. I agree it's a pretty cool song and perhaps too good to be a b-side though.

    I feel sorry for the people who will never hear this album. Their lives are destined to be meaningless and dull.

    Underrated, because it was different from Odelay. For some reason it reminds me of christmas vacations.
