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.

The Standout Tracks
2.) Uneventful Days
4.) See Through
This album has 11 songs and I’ve just listed 7 of them as standouts. It’s safe to say this is a great album. It has prompted me to take a deeper dive into Beck’s discography. I’m excited for what I might find.
