Beck – Odelay

12 11 2010

Listened: Monday October 11

Odelay made people come to my office and ask me what the hell I was  listening to (specifically the synthy noodling at the end of Novacane).

I enjoy this album a lot more than I used to. I acquired it sometime after its time in the sun, because, like Nevermind, I thought I should own it, as a piece of the soundtrack of my teenage years. Until the project, though, I didn’t listen to it much.

I guess I do have to give it props – it doesn’t sound like anything else. Mr Hansen might have known what he was doing.
