Bringing Beck Alive

There was a time when Beck could've been accused of acting weird for the sake of acting weird. However, now that he's 31, he's acting more mature and a little more human, which somehow makes him even weirder. His excellent new album, Sea Change, is an earnest exploration of loss and primitive yearning, a departure from 1999's kitschy Midnite Vultures. Has the troubadour of '90s irony finally gone all-the-way sincere?
