Sea Change is the eighth album by American alternative rock artist Beck, released on September 24, 2002. Recorded over a two-month period at Ocean Way Studios in Los Angeles with producer Nigel Godrich, the collection includes themes of heartbreak and desolation, solitude and loneliness. – Wiki

“It's the best album Beck has ever made, and it sounds like he's paid dearly for the achievement. He reportedly wrote these twelve wine-dark songs after breaking up with his longtime girlfriend. Significantly, two of Beck's finest songs of the last decade were also pristine love-sucks blues: "Asshole," on his '94 garage-folk detour, One Foot in the Grave, and the raga moan "Nobody's Fault but My Own," on 1998's Mutations. Sea Change, gleaming with twang and heartbroken strings, is an entire album of spectacular suffering.” – Rolling Stone

“Perhaps it's telling that his seventh studio album is titled Sea Change – for rather than the smooth, utterly inoffensive quirks of Mutations, Beck opts for abrupt changes in temperament and lush instrumentation. Recording again with Godrich and his regular band (Smokey Hormel, Roger Manning, Joey Waronker, and Justin Meldal-Johnsen) pounding out a track a day over an intense two-week period, Sea Change rightfully feels like a sequel to Mutations with no alarms and no surprises.

"A cloud of mind-numbing melancholy hangs over Sea Change, from the world-weary grandpa-Beck voice he employs on most of the tracks to its unfailingly morose lyrics. "These days I barely get by/ I don't even try," Beck sings in "The Golden Age", and that's just the tip of the jagged iceberg that looms ever larger in Sea Change's periscope.” – Pitchfork
