With its sonic fusion, samples, and experimental talent, Odelay takes a massive step back and quickly propels ahead, as if Mellow Gold wasn’t the weirdest thing on his discography. The Midnight Cowboy-esque Devil’s Haircut opens the show, while Where It’s At mixes Napoleon Dynamite synths with a backtrack two turntables and a microphone lyric and catchy tunes. The New Pollution mixes a party with some urban jungle tunes, and Ramshackle gives us a wild closer. All in all, the most sold and successful album Beck has ever produced.

In a completely stark contrast, Beck's album Odelay brings same level of genre hopping neatly cushioned with commerciality. Stylistically, Odelay incorporates both singing and rapping - although the rapping isn't particularly similar to a typical hip hop artist's. It's more similar to just talking than anything specifically rhythmic - this is to no fault though.
