Beck: Hyperspace Album Review

Up to this point, Beck wasn’t an artist I listened to at all. A friend recommended the album to me because she knows I am a fan of Pharrell Williams, who produced a lot of it. Off the top, the contemporary vaporwave aesthetic of Hypersapce is what drew me in. If the haunting, reverberating vocals atop the elongated synths of the opening track “Hyperlife” was any indication that the rest of the album would feel like the intergalactic odyssey I always wanted to go on, I knew I needed to keep listening.
