Notably Missing: The (Ashamed) Disco Dancer

And that's the closest we'll get to hearing the falsetto-ed Beck from Midnite Vultures. While songs like "Gamma Ray" and "Que 'Onda Guero" are played with a harder rock edge for optimum crowd movement, his most aggressively danceable album, with its pulsating funk and disco beats, is left entirely off the set list. Initially panned by critics seemingly confused by how far it deviated from his previous work, we might have a Pinkerton on our hands.
