Beck - Odelay

Odelay is more listenable than Mellow Gold, but not by a wide margin. They're really both the same album. They both have only one real hit ("Where It's At" for Odelay and "Loser" for Mellow Gold) and everything else on both albums are a musical thumb to the nose. While you can listen to Beck and think that he's sticking it to the man with his non-conformity, I actually find that turds like this are more of an affront to the listener. Remember that the man made millions of dollars on this album while you wasted time trying to understand every song other than "Where It's At." If you're keeping score at home, the joke is on you, not the man.

Baleeted? Yes. I can't stand Beck's early stuff. He was such an arrogant jerk.
