Soon to be a collector's item, the initial run of Beck's recently-released tenth anniversary edition of Odelay was mistakenly shipped to stores with a lyrics booklet that contained "unproofed lyrics that were taken from a lyrics website." In other words, rather than asking Beck himself, the lyrics were taken, for "layout purposes," from one of those websites you go to when you want to figure out what Snow is rapping in "Informer." Beck apologizes for the oversight, and arrangements are being made to provide anyone who purchased the incorrect lyrics booklet with a corrected version, free of charge. Personally, we like the incorrect lyrics. "She's alone in a new delusion" is certainly clearer than "She's alone in the new pollution."
