I hated Odelay for the longest time. radio and Mtv played those singles to death until what?!....98? argh! plus I was way too cool and busy digging through the back pages of music history.
wasn't till the smoke cleared and after that Prince tribute thing he did that I gave it a thorough listen and yes!!! Odelay is pretty awesome. still holds up even today. I think. I love the production and the details. it's not overproduced like I first thought or, uh, lo-fi.
then again im not really a Beck fan either but, y'know, im from that decade long ago where everyone wore baggy pants and listen to their parents music.
