EDITORS’ NOTES

From the opening fuzz-riff of “Devils Haircut” (which Beck yanked from Them) to the unforgettable chant of “two turntables and a microphone” on “Where It’s At,” Odelay defines a moment in the mid-'90s like few others. Impossibly rich with ideas and invention—a hip-hop groove underpins the countryfied tune “Lord Only Knows”—the album continues to stun. It’s also proof that Beck has been a wildly imaginative, peerless talent from day one.
