  Mellow Gold - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mellow Gold is Beck's major label debut, and despite previous low-fi recordings, is considered his first official album.
Mellow Gold was released on March 1, 1994 (see 1994 in music) on the strength of the surprise hit "Loser" (US #10).
Due to "Loser"'s novelty style, Beck was initially perceived by some as a flash in the pan, but the release of the critically-acclaimed album Odelay silenced these claims.

''Mellow Gold'' was released on March 1, 1994 (see 1994 in music) on the strength of the surprise hit "Loser" (US #10) and stunned critics with its hybrid of styles and ironic and witty lyrics.
On ''Mellow Yellow'' this is still evident in "Sunny South Kensington", "Museum" (originally recorded for ''Sunshine Superman'' and rerecorded for ''Mellow Yellow'') and the title track, but is also tempered with world-weary observations of that scene ("Young Girl Blues").
Mellow Man Ace is considered the "Godfather of Latin Rap", in 2002 he was inducted into the Hip Hop Hall of Fame.

 Fourmilog: None Dare Call It Reason: What Gives Gold that Mellow Glow?
In gold, however, relativistic contraction of the s orbitals causes their energy levels to shift closer to those of the d orbitals (which are less affected by relativity).
Gold's 6s orbital, however, is relativistically contracted toward the nucleus, and its electron has a high probability to be among the electrons of the filled inner shells.
This, along with the stronger electrostatic attraction of the 79 protons in the nucleus, reduce the “atomic radius” of gold to 135 picometres compared to 260 picometres for cæsium with its 55 protons and electrons—the gold atom is almost 50% heavier, yet only a little over half the size of cæsium.

 24. Beck - Mellow Gold   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The sound is timeless, as it puts diverse elements of historical music in a postmodern context; Mellow Gold's aesthetic brings to mind the strange image of a backwoods folk musician or busker with an unmatched grasp of pop culture.
Spiced with music of the past, Mellow Gold gave '90s rock the essential nutrients it needed to evolve into new states of existence.
Mellow Gold proved to a small group of interested listeners willing to delve beyond his first hit "Loser" that Beck was a gifted madman/artist and much more than a one-hit wonder.

 In Defense Of Beck Hansen
The album “Mellow Gold” itself was definitely creative, but still sort of patchy...it struck me as just a vague sketch of what the man could really do; a blueprint, if you will.
While creative and groundbreaking in some ways, "Mellow Gold" also sounded tired and sedated to me. It was probably mainly due to Beck's voice, which sort of resided in his sinuses and in his cheeks, if that makes any sense.
“Mellow Gold” made the top ten…everyone who gave even a casual glance at MTV or flipped through their radio dial in 1994 and 1995 heard “Loser”…it was in the minds and ears of the collective consciousness.

Time would prove, though, that Beck was no slacker; Mellow Gold provided the scrawled blueprint for Beck's next major label album, Odelay which would prove one of the defining albums of the 1990s.
Mellow Gold was Beck’s breakthrough album, and although less famous than the follow-up ‘Odelay’; (a true groundbreaking album), it was the album that had contained a song that defined a generation.
From the opening slide guitar riff that was born through an hour of jamming on his guitar with a friend recording, followed by the hip-hop drum beat that the said friend later added, the instant appeal of ‘Loser’; is still relevant today.

Mellow Gold is a grimy Polaroid of fried white-trash invention.
Reconciling the painfully fashionable grunge aesthetic with the drunken verbiage of the Beat Generation, Mellow Gold founded the slacker generation, and "Loser"--the opening track--became its unofficial anthem.
A concept album of sorts, Mellow Gold narrated the backdrop of Los Angeles as seen from the bottom of the dustbin, framed with the impoverished strains of fractured, missing-stringed folk and ramshackle white-boy hip-hop.

 Beck Album Reviews
Mellow Gold (Geffen ‘94) Rating: B+ Beck rose to national prominence with “Loser” when its slacker refrain “I’m a loser baby, so why don’t you kill me” became a runaway hit with "alternative" hipsters and music critics.
I wish that Beck would cut down on his 4-letter words (which are troubling only in their desperation to shock) and distorted vocals, because I feel that he's most effective when he keep things low-key and simple.
Beck is comfortable with country, blues, cocktail jazz, r&b, hip-hop, electronica, film noir, rock n’ roll (a shortcoming on Mellow Gold), and, of course, folk music, and he blends these disparate styles into catchy, upbeat, and danceable hybrids that are no less enjoyable because of their complexity.

The music he makes on MELLOW GOLD is an unruly synthesis of Americana, completely devoid of cliches as Beck stumbles on one fresh idea after another with a rare sense of discovery.
Each song sounds lived-in and alive, all run hurdy-gurdy through the meat-grinder of an original sensibility, fashioned with grow-your-own power and spirit on a humble 8-track recorder in his producer's living room.
MELLOW GOLD is a shot across the bow of business-as-usual rock.

The styles are too broad for people with a narrow range of tastes, or for those whose definition of cutting edge music is limited to one genre.
Beck has a relatively mellow style on this CD, as the title suggests, that might also put some listeners off.
However, while the style is generally mellow, there were enough pace changes to hold my interest from beginning to end.

 Beck - Mellow Gold Review - sputnikmusic   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
This is a very mellow sounding folk type song with yet, more of Beck's humor at it's finest and a nice Harmonica solo.
Changing the song almost entirely from a bass heavy slow paced song with what sounds like a sitar, to a jangly percussion and noisy piece with almost what sounds like Beck was just banging on random stuff in his kitchen.
Anyway, he played mostly Mellow Gold stuff, and the place freaked out when he played "Loser".

 Beck : Mellow Gold (Clean) - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
From its kaleidoscopic array of junk-culture musical styles to its assured, surrealistic wordplay, Beck's debut album Mellow Gold is a stunner.
Although his inspired sense of humor occasionally plays like he's a smirking, irony-addled hipster, his music is never kitschy, and his wordplay is constantly inspired.

But there’s more to Mellow Gold than “Loser.” My 2nd favorite tune on here has to be the odd “Soul Suckin’ Jerk.” I can’t describe this song for you, it’s odd and all over the place.
Around the time Mellow Gold and “Loser” were riding high on the charts, Beck tried to scare new fans away with this indie release.
