** During the aforementioned Beck and Flaming Lips crossover shows, the Flaming Lips would effectively act as Beck's backing band, coming up with their own arrangements of his songs. Sometimes they were pretty similar to the studio versions, sometimes they could be radically different. Their version of "Get Real Paid" was much noisier and more abrasive, turning it from {{Music/Kraftwerk}}-inspired electro to Brainiac-inspired noise-rock/electro-punk: Beck reportedly heard them working on the arrangement in rehearsal and said something along the lines of "That was really cool! What was it?"

Added DiffLines:

* {{Chiptune}}: "Girl" starts with an 8-bit version of the song's melody that plays for 8 bars before the song properly starts.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Mondegreen}}: Invoked with "Girl", which contains a chorus line that's either "My sun-eyed girl" or "My cyanide girl". The album's lyric booklet simply reads the line as "my ... girl", leaving the actual sung word unclear. Due to the song's dark lyrical matter, public opinions have shifted more towards "cyanide" as the correct answer.

* LoudnessWar: ''Colors'' is [=DR4=] with some tracks as bad as [=DR3=], which is just unforgivable. Earlier albums sometimes fall into this trope somewhat, too, but not this badly.

* UncommonTime: The chorus of "Blackbird Chain" jumps all over the place.

* UncommonTime: The chorus of "Blackbird Chain" jumps all over the place. "Dear Life" is mostly in patterns of 14/4 (6/4 followed by two bars of 4/4, usually), though not always.

* {{Retraux}}: Beck's 2012 "album" ''Song Reader'' was originally released not as a record, or a CD, or a collection of MP3 files, or as any kind of recorded performance at all--it was published as ''printed sheet music''. 20 tracks worth. If you can read traditional music notation and you have a piano or guitar, knock yourself out. Beck himself performed "I'm Down" and "Sorry" from ''Song Reader'' in live shows before finally releasing ''Song Reader'' as a record in 2014, except he only sang "Heaven's Ladder" and outsourced the rest to artists such as Music/JackWhite, Music/{{Fun}}, Music/JarvisCocker, Music/{{Sparks}}, among many others.

Since then, he has released seven more albums, his latest being 2014's ''Morning Phase''. During this time, he had become noted for the [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly large variety of genres]] his work takes in. Critics have deemed him one of the most definitive solo artists in AlternativeRock (if not the most influential), with ''Odelay'' and ''Sea Change'' being among his most acclaimed records.

* The upcoming album ''Colors'' (2017) - In June 2015, Beck released the single "Dreams" with the aim of it being the lead single from his next album. He says it started as a garage-rock album, but will be more a funky sequel to Midnite Vultures. During the two year period, additional singles "Wow", "Dear Life" and "Up All Night" were also released despite delays encountered with recording the full album.
