Beck: Live at Town Hall, NYC

Barney Hoskyns, MOJO, February 1999

With the MTV Unplugged era now firmly behind us, Beck is at some pains to explain that tonight’s show - one of only two in support of the marvellous Mutations - is intended to be "as un-Unplugged as possible". Not for young Hansen the lazy, faute de mieux reductiveness that characterised so many of those MTV soirees.
