It's an important record, containing the most interesting and extensive use of sampling up to that point, and possibly since. Artists sampled include Grand Funk Railroad, Edgar Winter, Bob Dylan, and Beck himself, among many others. What's extraordinary though, to me, is Beck's sampling fluency - it's so spontaneous and witty that it's like listening to a really clever jazz solo. To this day, when I listen to this album I laugh out loud.Features:
