Mellow Gold (Explicit)
Released: Mar 1994
Beck's major label debut introduced the world to his lo-fi, psychedelic folk, and funk jams. On the strength of the single "Loser" this decidedly non-commercial recording became quite successful. An across-the-board collection of freakout narratives and good songs, this home-recorded album lacks the sheen of Odelay, and is all the better for it.
