    The feelings I get from this are unreal; a mix of sadness, despair, unreality and resignation. A mental break in musical form. [2] accurate description of how it makes me feel as well...tis just transcendental

    Definitely sounds like Nick Drake's "River Man." Two great songs by two great musicians though.

    what is wrong with carrying on an influence of Nick Drake? he can't make anymore, it's good to carry the torch i reckon

    I love this song, Yes, NIck Drake/Moody Blues :D but wow this song is beautiful in its own right. We don't have to worry Y Life goes where it does Faster than any bullet From an empty gun Turn yourself over".

    Beautiful song. Beck is great enough to take a song style so particular to one artist (Nick Drake in this case) and make something unique.

    Sure, this song is beautifully reminiscent of Nick Drake's work, but it is also much more. Beck wears his influences on his sleeve in this track, but also infuses the song with an extra "something" that only he can provide. Gorgeous song.

    What a beautiful tune, its pace haunting and out-of-this-world. This could calm my nerves or make me break down and cry in anguish, depending on the mood.

    yeah. and if you've heard nick drake's music, you wouldn't be able to make the comparsion. your logic is super awesome, hotterthanjuly.

    One of my favorite Beck songs. And I could totally imagine Radiohead making a song like this.

    My God, what a nick drake wannabe. Copied everything including the arrangements. But naaa, nick drake can't be matched.

    I love Beck. I wish he and Kings of Convenience would do a song together, it'd be awesome!

    This album is amazing, as much as I love Beck I think this shortlived style of his was by far the best... Very Nick Drake sounding.

    Agreed va_G, very Nick Drake with that low tuning. But still beautiful.

    hey, i'm one of those beck fans that hate sea change. it certainly was quite a departure for him at the time, and one that, in retrospect, seems to mark the beginning of his decline (with spots of greatness since)
