An Odd Entrances is the eighteenth studio album by the American garage rock band Thee Oh Sees, released on November 18, 2016 on Castle Face Records. The album was recorded during the same sessions as the band's previous album, A Weird Exits, released three months previously.
The album is the band's last to feature drummer Ryan Moutinho, who departed from the band two days prior to the album's release.
In a positive review for AllMusic, Tim Sendra praised both the album and the band's overall 2016 output. Discussing the songs, "The Poem" and "At the End, On the Stairs", he wrote: "Both these songs, and the sonic experiments that surround them, boast of just how impressively good Dwyer and Thee Oh Sees were in 2016. Packed full of confident exploration, sonic wizardry, expert guitar manipulation, and tight songcraft, this album of "leftovers" is as good as most of their contemporaries' best work." Noting the band's psychedelic shift in tone, Consequence of Sound's Nina Corcoran favorably compared An Odd Entrances to the band's earlier work: "An Odd Entrances, the companion piece to A Weird Exits, not only expands his songwriting, but it solidifies the band’s lineup, showing Dwyer’s ability to steer Thee Oh Sees towards the other end of frenetics."
