Customer Review

on 20 July 2010
Ok, i have to start off by saying that i wouldn't recomend you buy Odelay as your first Beck album because it has a very full on sound to it......i'd ease yourself in with maybe 'Mutations' or 'Guero', that'll help you get the idea of who Beck is and what he's all about.

Now 'Odelay' ISN'T my favorite Beck album, i'd have to give that honour to 'Sea Change' & i guarantee you right now that some of you out there won't like this album, but if you've become bored with some of your bland commercial music & you want get away from all of that, this is the album for you. In my humble oppinion it is one of the greatest albums ever to grace this earth.

You can't really class Beck under any kind of "genre" and this album really underlines that fact, it's a real mish mash of songs, while you have some songs like 'Jack-Ass' & 'Ramshakle' that are very slow paced and melodic, you also have songs like 'Devil's Haircut' & 'Novacane' which have a really fast paced heavy metal-ish sound to them......& even then there are songs like 'Where it's at' & 'High 5' which have elements of Rap/Hip Hop to them......so even if you don't like the album on a whole, there HAVE to be a few songs that you like because the album is so genre-bending.

In my oppinion everyone should have this album in their collection, it is as essential as Sgt pepper by The Beatles, Highway 61 Revisited by Bob Dylan or Pet Sounds by the Beach Boys, I really do hold it in that high a regard.

I thoroughly recomend that you buy this album.
