    9. "Nobody's Fault But My Own"

    Album: Mutations
    Year: 1998

    Mutation was Beck's first time working with Nigel Godrich, and together they managed to create a follow-up to the successful Odelay that was sonically very different, but still clearly a Beck record. Beck's love of experimentation and genre-blending was still there, but Godrich smoothed out all the rough edges and in your face rawness. "Nobody's Fault But My Own" is a gorgeous, slow-paced folk-rock ballad tinged with pyschedelia and filled with mournfully poetic lyrics. Just another reminder that whatever genre Beck sets his sights on, he does well.
