On his first DGC album, 1994's Mellow Gold, Beck demonstrated his ingenious ability to mix old and
new styles with ease. The result was music that on one hand sounded familiar, yet surprised at every
turn. On Odelay, Beck has further mutated his approach, taking it to a higher level.
The first cut on Odelay, "Devil's Haircut," sports a guitar riff reminiscent of Terry and the Pirates' "I Can
Only Give You Everything" and features Beck's stream-of-consciousness lyrical flow. The title of the first
single, "Where It's At," is a skewed reference to the John Lee Hooker album That's Where It's At
