Beck's seminal, Dust Brothers-produced classic is finally back in print!

Originally released in June of 1996, Beck's second major label album, Odelay, was his chance to prove that he was no one-hit wonder. His major label debut, Mellow Gold, had produced the hit single Loser, but there was a sense he hadn't quite won over everyone and it was hard to tell exactly who Beck was. Was he joking? Was he serious? Was he simply some sort of beat-poet novelty act? With Odelay, he enlisted the Dust Brothers, most famous at this point for being behind the boards for the Beastie Boys' 1989 sonic-collage opus Paul's Boutique. Together they crafted a classic.
