  1. Beck’s fifth studio album, Odelay, is perplexingly unconventional and incredibly original, making it one of the best albums of The album features a wide variety of genres and influences; ranging from Hindustani drone in “Derelict” to the reggae riffs of “Devil’s Haircut”, from extensive, DJ Shadow-like sample mixing to grungy guitars and literally everything in between.

  4. Odelay was a groundbreaking record in , and while it is doubtless a product of its time, it hasn't aged all that badly. Beck's blend of country, rock and hip hop sounds a lot fresher than on his subsequent albums, many of which sound as if they're trying to recapture the sound of Odelay-- in siorolarlainabanfuwaregespoicar.xyzinfo that respect, the quality and the success of this album may actually have been a bad thing.
  5. At the time, the complex production of the album seemed so different from anything I had ever heard. Now, I realize that like most things that seem exciting and new, the sounds saturating Odelay are something that have already been explored. In the late 90s, I didn’t realize the 60s and 70s influence or recognize all the tracks Beck sampled.
