America has a new Woodie Guthrie. Beck's childlike aproach to songwriting and music making are the real deal. He has reinvented the sound of folk music. And though it may sound like rap, techno, industrial or hip hop it is at its core folk music, and that can't be contrived in some corporate office.
To sum up Odelay by describing a song from it would be futile, it is too rich- too complex. I can't describe all music from the past 75 years in one song but Beck can. You should listen.
