Beck - Odelay

Been playing this rather a lot recently. Bought it not long after release way back in 1996. Can't believe it is 22 years old, the recording sounds really good on the CD version I have. Not a bad song on the album (imo) and is definitely a masterpiece in my view.

Where it's at......

RIAA

Why does this have to be adhered to ?

+20dB of Bass boost, a defined roll off at the extreme bottom, treble roll off starting in the mid range and falling off at -6dB/octave indefinitely.

Why can't you do your own thing to suit your own system and ears and to hell with this :Bllocks:
