One of Beck's best album in years isn't performed by Beck at all, except for the doleful, McCartney-esque "Heaven's Ladder." Instead, artists like Jack White, fun. and Norah Jones interpret tracks from Beck's original sheet music collection. Highlights include David Johansen's "Rough on Rats," Loudon Wainwright III's "Do We? We Do," White's "I'm Down" and Jones' excellent "Just Noise." The focus on live instruments grounds the chord progressions without letting samples or technology gloss over melody, while the lyrics are much more lighthearted than Beck's earlier 2014 release, Morning Phase.
