iTunes Review

Beck was always the joker in the grunge pack. Where contemporaries like Nirvana and Soundgarden traded in soul-baring squalls of noise and po-faced metal, Beck never pretended to be anything more than an grinning musical thief, mixing folk pastiches, borrowed blues, junkyard noise and white boy rapping with an irreverence unheard of since the Fugs sung of dirty old men and killing for peace back in the late ’60s. It came as something of a surprise then, when the smug Silverlake hipster behind the infectious “Loser” released an album as sprawling and ambitious as Odelay. Though Beck’s much vaunted sense of humor is still in place, as evidenced by the absurdly incompetent raps of “Rock the Catskills” and the tongue-in-cheek stoner-lament of “Readymade,” the lush arrangements that underlie these snide jokes proved that Beck was, at last, hoping to be taken seriously as a musician. In all honesty, the bonus material here does little to add to the legend of Odelay. Though we're offered a wealth of celebrity remixes, dilapidated b-sides and off-kilter sonic experiments, most of this bonus material jars uncomfortably against the deliberately assembled sonic collages of Odelay proper. That being said, Odelay is still very much the masterpiece that it was touted as upon its release, and longtime fans will be delighted to be reminded of both the polished exuberance and rough squalor of Beck’s topsy-turvy musical creations.

keeping it wet

Once you drop it like its wet you never lose it - beck came back and kept the existing moistness but brought it to a wetter level - kudos beck

A classic

Great album made greater with the inclusion of rare and unreleased tracks....get it!

The bonus tracks are really good here. Also the original album brings back a lot of memories and it's refreshing to listen to. I am very happy with this release. Rock on!

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Initially pegged as something as a voice of a generation when "Loser" turned into a smash crossover success, Beck did wind up crystallizing much of the postmodern ruckus of the '90s alternative explosion, but in unexpected ways. Based in the underground anti-folk and noise rock worlds, Beck encompassed all manner of modern music, drawing in hip-hop, blues, trash rock, pop, soul, lounge music...pretty much any found sound or vinyl dug up from a dusty crate, blurring boundaries and encapsulating how...
