Beck really made an impression here. I'm not sure why this isn't higher than it is.

Great samples collage. Nice hiphop grooves. Cool use of 'redneck' sounds. And unpretentious! Just a mellow fool messing with sounds and music. Although experimental and eclectic, this album does not neglect songwriting quality.

It's like one huge 90s collage of every genre - but on steroids! A brilliant tapestry of music, cooler than cool, and literally all of the tracks range from great to brilliant. Beck, and Odelay, are truly one of a kind.

It's a good album but clearly overrated.
Beck always manages to keep things interesting all through the album but the songs are not amazing.
They have many parts which keeps the listener entertained and Devil's Haircut or New Pollution almost reach a higher ground. But most of the songs are just nice.

This album is so important to me. I discovered it when I most needed it in my life. Beck is kind of a freak of nature and it shows on this record.

Revisited this album after not listening to it for at least a year and a half. It's as good as I had remembered.

A mash-up of so many different styles but most definitely Beck. I'd forgot how much I enjoy this album but it's not up there with Morning Phase for me although that one is a more mellow offering.

Odelay is crazy overrated!

Stars for originality and versatility. Beck is one of a kind and the stream of consciousness writing creates some interesting images.

But it doesn't make it all the great to listen to and half the time I'm wondering what drugs he was on when he wrote some of this.

Beck has had an amazing career crossing all kinds of genres. I like serious Beck better than goofy Beck.

It's worth listening to because it is different than everyone else.

A wonderful experimental album that swerves all over the place like a car on ice and is a lot of fun to listen to. Beck's style is impossible to replicate and utterly delectable.
