#814 Beck – Odelay

Beck is another artist, like Alanis Morissette, who I did not appreciate when he first arrived on the scene. There were quite a few artist in the 90s I felt that way about. Eventually, I revisited him and changed my mind. Odelay his fifth studio album was released in 1996.

Trivia: On the album cover is a Komondor, which is a Hungarian sheepdog.

I remember “Devils Haircut” when it was released. I thought it was a better than “Loser”, but I was not invested in Beck’s music yet. If the radio played more of the good songs, then I might have become a fan sooner.

Songs that I like are “Ramshackle“, “Jack-Ass”, “Where It’s At”, “The New Pollution”, “High 5 (Rock the Catskills)”, “Sissyneck”, and “Novacane”.

How is that this album is almost 25 years old and it still sounds fresh? That is the genius of Beck. Overall, I love the album. It is strange that I feel as though I am listening to an album from many artist because Beck sounds so different in each song. The music borrows from almost every genre known to man. Over the years, Beck has become a favourite of mine. 9.5/10.
