3.
Adjective used by artsy, liberal journalist types to describe just about any album ever produced. A record is particularly "electic" if its tracks vary between criticizing the world's power structures, commiserating about yucky, yucky girls, or talking about all the randomness that makes live "ever so worth living." In other words, it's about giving credence to incoherence.
