Odelay

Odelay is a 1996 (see 1996 in music) album by indie rocker Beck. The album peaked at #16 on Billboard's Pop Albums chart. After the mainstream success of "Loser[?]", Odelay included several new hit singles, including "Where It's At" and "The New Pollution", which expanded his audience considerably.

Odelay won a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album[?] in 1996.

The album's unusual cover photo, which appears to show a mop jumping over a hurdle, is actually a real photo of a bergamasco[?], a rare breed of dog with thick matted hair.
