Midnite Vultures

Midnite Vultures is an indie rock album by Beck, released on November 16, 1999 (see 1999 in music). Similar to most of Beck's previous albums in its exploration of widely varying musical styles, Midnite Vultures didn't achieve the same blockbuster success as his breakthrough, Odelay, but it was well-received by his fans and critics.
