#958 Beck – Sea Change

I think I have already stated that I am a fan of Beck‘s music. The reason I became a big fan was Sea Change. It does back to Debrecen, then Budapest with Tamás. I have never had a friend like him. He really fooled me for a long time. I thought he was the best friend ever, then he proved me wrong. I will never have a best friend now. I will die in this sadness he gave me. I will never trust again. This album is perfect for all the things I feel. We listened to it a lot, but I had no idea that I would live it. This is Beck’s eighth studio album.

“The Golden Age” rips me apart every time. That last line is my life story.

It’s a treacherous road
With a desolated view
There’s distant lights
But here they’re far and few
And the sun don’t shine
Even when its day
You gotta drive all night
Just to feel like you’re ok

These days I barely get by
I don’t even try

Guess I’m Doing Fine” is another one with heartbreaking lyrics for me and you.

“Now I bade a friend farewell
I can do whatever pleases me

It’s only lies that I’m living
It’s only tears that I’m crying
It’s only you that I’m losing
Guess I’m doing fine”

Lonesome Tears” is so sad. It makes me feel like I am floating in space, alone in space, yet I can see the others going about their lives without, without seeing me. Nothing changes inside of me.

“How could this love
Ever turning
Never turn its eye on me
How could this love
Ever changing
Never change the way I feel”

 “Lost Cause”, “It’s All in Your Mind”, “Paper Tiger”, “Round the Bend”, and all the rest of the songs on the album are great.

Overall, this is a perfect album for those of us who are deeply hurt and will probably never recover. Definitely will not recover. It is a beautiful album from Beck. 10/10.
