The October Album of the Month is Beck, Odelay!

Every story has a beginning, and despite his radio success before his second studio record, Beck’s story might actually begin with Odelay. It’s easy to forget now, but as American culture moved into the late-90s, dealing with the invasion of JNCO Jeans and early, early tastes of Scott Stapp’s warble, the idea of what was “cool” was fleeting, or rather, being redefined. Kurt Cobain had died in 1994. MTV was beginning to enter its last phase as a music tastemaker, before it started airing exclusively reality shows. And so when Beck arrived with Odelay in 1996, a record that kind of encapsulates every weird sound and attitude of that time, he was unknowingly delivering a product that would shortly come to define an era of baggy shorts, middle-parted hair, and those couple years when the line between ironic and honest appreciation became irreparably blurred. And whether we admit it or not, there had been a hole left by the loss of Kurt. And whether he wanted to fill it or not, Beck assumed the role.
