    Based on all of the recommendations here and in magazines, I finally picked up Beck's "Sea Change" SACD today along with Outkast's "Stankonia" and Nickel Creek's debut (I know, a very strange music shopping experience). What type of environment do you suggest for my first listen?

    A cool, dry space; preferably indoors.

    I figured that by writing "environment", I'd get some interesting replies!

    Amphetamines, beer, and hankies.

    For Sea Change, I would recommend breaking up with your significant other, getting ever-so-slightly plastered, and then cranking up the volume in a darkened room [​IMG]

    So, to say that it's a "moody" album is an understatement?

    Yes, a moody little tone-poem, but ultimately quite transcendent. "Little One" is sorta the emotional climax, before the dour-yet-oddly-hopeful "Side of the Road".

    Get dark with this one. And alone. Use it when you scrape bottom. Get mired in it. And then let it release you.

    Thanks Rich, that was exactly what I was looking for!
