Sorry but I'm not going to vote for "Computer Rock" because of the lack of familiarity (on my CD copy the last song was "Diskobox," a collaboration with Jon Spencer that appeared as exclusive bonus tracks on the European edition). Anyway, after to listening to it only once, "Computer Rock" would have been my lowest ranked song for sure.

1. Devils Haircut
2. Where It's At
3. The New Pollution
4. Derelict
5. Ramshackle
6. Jack-Ass
7. Sissyneck
8. Hotwax
9. Novacane
10. Minus
11. Lord Only Knows

Beck's sense of irony could only power me through his first two major-label releases. But the hooks were good on this one.

Sad to see so few people making their ranks for this perfect album. It's impressive that Beck could compose an album that's half rap and half folk, and maintain the high quality through all these adventourous tracks, each one of them permeated with experimentation, via noises, samples and deconstructions. A certain all time top 30 for me.

01 | Hotwax
02 | Lord Only Knows
03 | Where It's At
04 | High 5 (Rock the Catskills)
05 | Sissyneck
06 | Novacane
07 | Jack-Ass
08| Devils Haircut
09 | The New Pollution
10 | Minus
11 | Derelict
12 | Ramshackle
13 | Readymade
14 | Computer Rock (Hidden Track)

How disappointing! Far from being my favorite album of Beck.

Great:
01 | Devils Haircut

Good:
07 | Jack-Ass
11 | Readymade

OK:
09 | Minus
10 | Sissyneck
05 | Derelict
03 | Lord Only Knows
04 | The New Pollution
13 | Ramshackle
08 | Where It's At

Not for me:
06 | Novacane
02 | Hotwax
12 | High 5 (Rock the Catskills)
14 | Computer Rock (Hidden Track)

Unfortunately, this is one of my least favorite top 100 albums. In Honorio's review of "Loveless" a while back, he discussed how he found much about the production pretentious, and that's how I've always felt about "Odelay." (Though I do like a few of Beck's other albums.) There are songs I like on this album, as well, but none I give an 8 or above.

Overall album rating: 5.69
