In 2005, Beck released an album entitled “Guero.” Beck switches up his sound all the time, but this is probably one of my favorite of his artistic personalities. There’s a distinct electronic element throughout the album, but it’s peppered with touches of rock, folk, and dare I say hip-hop! E-Pro is a monster, and Hell Yes gets stuck in my head every time I listen to it
In 2006, Tool released their last album “10,000 days.”This is less mathematic than Lateralus (I love math rock), but this album is a true piece of art, especially “Right In Two.” Also I found Rosetta Stoned one of the most difficult songs Tool ever released. There is a bit of Folk on 10,000 Days (Wings Pt 2). Vicarious is also a key track. 🙂
PS: loved the stereoscopic glasses and the 3D artwork.
