The original album is excellent.

I just hope the bonus material is worth it.

I've heard positive things about it. Some of the tracks are pretty Sea Changeish, which is my favorite album so I'm stoked. It's nearly finished ripping.

I'm looking forward to hearing this. Odelay is in my top 100 easily.

Odelay's my absolute favourite Beck album. I'll be waiting to see the reactions though to figure whether this one'll be worth getting.

I also think this is by far and away Beck's best album.
I've never heard any albums, especially prior to 1995, that sound anything like this. He would get brownie points for originality alone.
I liken MellowGold a little bit to Radiohead's Pablo Honey. They were both good, rocking music, but nothing that adventurous yet. Then, Beck and Radiohead both ventured out with their next album. Beck hit his stride, and every track on Odelay is solid. I've been a little disappointed with everything he has done since then, but that's just because he set the bar so high with this one. However, I really don't like any of his new stuff. I mean Guerro was his only new one I found listenable.

Um, how wasn't Mellow Gold adventurous?

MellowGold was somewhat adventurous, my favorite track is Beercan. With the exception of that track, and Loser, and a few others, it just kind of sounds like a typical indie album.
What I was trying to say was that following Beck's somewhat successful MellowGold, and Radiohead's somewhat successful Pablo Honey, they could have really just faded off like a lot of bands, and gone a little more commercial, made a terrible album, and faded off.
However, both of their follow-ups were neither commercial or terrible, and in Beck's Odelay and Radiohead's The Bends, they really solidified themselves as genuine artists who were here to stay. It seems true that with all great art, the artist has to ultimately be out to please themself, and not the indolent masses.

I don't really see how Beck could have got more commercial after Mellow Gold. Geffen were promoting him as the next big teen pop act at the time.
I remember an interview with both him & Lou Barlow in the Melody Maker around 93/94 where Lou laid into him for turning his back on his lo-fi roots to become essentially a pop act.
It wasn't until Odelay that he regained his credibility.

Never heard of the delux edition... time to get me my bonus tracks!

Though I already have Burro, the Spanish version of Jackass complete with matching instrumental... I always got a kick out of that. "Aw what the hell you listenin to?" "Beck" "Shut the **** up, this is Beck!?"
