Both Beyoncé and Beck put out great albums last year, which is why we understand why a lot of people felt Beyoncé really deserved to win this year’s Grammy for Album of the Year.

Beck isn’t exactly Milli Vanilli — on his latest album, he’s credited with playing more than a dozen different instruments, including dulcimer, glockenspiel and ukulele.
