Joey Waronker

"I don't think it's a transitional album. Beck has already started working on the next album

... and I don't know where it will go ... but I knew when I was in the studio for

Mutations that he has bigger fish to fry. He has lots of ideas. He was almost doing

this album as a way of getting it out of his system, in a good way. He wanted to get these

songs out there. I'm starting to get it now, though. Nobody realized how good this record

is; it's like [Neil Young's] Harvest or something. It definitely has a timelessness to

it." -- Joey Waronker, Beck's drummer on the funky folkie's upcoming Mutations
