Mutations is the sixth studio album by American recording artist Beck, released on November 3, 1998 by DGC Records. Though less commercially successful than the preceding Odelay, it won a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album. Mutations was produced by Nigel Godrich, who was well-known at that point for his previous work with Radiohead. The album contains a number of Moog keyboards, acoustic guitars, and string arrangements.

Once Beck became an international celebrity - shortly after Geffen's hitmaking machine began to dry up - it was impossible for him to release an independent record, so Geffen snapped up his Bong Load contract, releasing Mutations in the fall of 1998 while stressing that it was not the official follow-up to Odelay. The presence of producer Nigel Godrich, the man who helmed Radiohead's acclaimed OK Computer, makes such claims dubious. It's a small, spacy, low-key album that is a world away from the dense kaleidoscope of sound that has distinguished his previous Geffen work, yet it unmistakably bears his signature stamp.

Includes FREE MP3 version of this album. On his 1996 breakthrough album Odelay, Beck Hansen surprised a sleepy music community by blending funk, rock, rap, alternative, and electronica in ways that were both startlingly innovative and irresistibly catchy. Mutations is equally attention-grabbing but not in the k-meets-indie-geek style you might expect. Reflective and plaintive, the album reveals Beck's more sentimental side with an eclectic collection of acoustic-based songs that will sound familiar to anyone who cherishes his indie-rock effort One Foot in the Grave.

Album Name Mutations.

According to party line, neither Beck nor Geffen ever intended Mutations to be considered as the official follow-up to Odelay, his Grammy-winning breakthrough. It was more like One Foot in the Grave, designed to be an off-kilter, subdued collection of acoustic-based songs pitched halfway between psychedelic country blues and lo-fi folk. The presence of producer Nigel Godrich, the man who helmed Radiohead's acclaimed OK Computer, makes such claims dubious

Idk why it feels like this isn't seen as a true Beck album. It's better than nearly everything in his discography. Tropicalia is like the smoothest song he's ever created. Or consider a donation? #17.
