5.0 out of 5 stars Beck! Odelay!, 24 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Odelay (Audio CD)
`Odelay' really defined the 90s in its kaleidoscopic collage of genres, mixing it all into a pot and handing it over to the master chefs, the Dust Brothers. Beck's lyrics are as obscure as ever, non-sequitur and all that, but the amazing thing is that you actually get those lyrics stuck in your head. As strange and otherworldly as those words seem, they are catchy as hell and won't leave your brain. There's food for thought.
The entire album is like that, songs that contain so many musical ideas it would be foolish to try and dissect them. "Devil's Haircut", "Lord Only Knows", "The New Pollution", "Where It's At", all incredible songs. Some songs aren't as well known, but are worth listening to nonetheless, like the Middle Eastern tinged "Derelict" or the melancholic "Readymade"
You don't need me to tell you this album is a must-buy. But I'll say it anyway.
