Biography

Beck has traveled light years from being pegged as a reluctant generational spokesperson when “Loser” metamorphosed from a rejected demo to a ubiquitous smash. Instead he wound up crystallizing much of the post-modern ruckus of the ‘90s alternative explosion, but in his own unpredictable manner: Beck's singular career has been one that's seen him utilize all manners ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album - regardless of past glories 19 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD
A number of previous reviews have focussed on comparing this to Beck's earlier releases, some favourably, some less so. Well, this is the first Beck CD I've picked up (spur of the moment after seeing him perform some of these tracks on 'Later'), so I guess this is a 'stand-alone' review - i.e. without reference to past glories.
It's quite understated (minimalist production, vocals low in the mix), so it takes a few plays to get under your skin - but once the individual songs register, it just keeps getting better. There's a slow burning groove to many of the tracks - it would make a great party album (assuming your party goers are old enough to look beyond the top 10).
The lasting impression is of subtly catchy tracks driven along by a slow-cooked mix of bass riffs, hand claps and finger snaps, overlaid with low key but tuneful vocals.
Some of the tracks rock (E-Pro, Rental Car), some have a old-timer county twang (Farewell Ride, Emergency Exit), others are almost pure rythmn (Black Tambourine), and Broken Drum is just beautiful, but with the possible exception of the final bonus track Chain Reaction they all stand - indeed develop with - repeated plays.
Highly recommended.
PS inspired by reviews of other Beck albums, I've since picked up the highly rated Sea Change album. It's a great if very different album (haunting breakup songs rather than grooves - Broken Drum would slot right in), but it doesn't diminish Guero. Ignore the nay-sayers; there's room for more than one style in an artist's pantheon, and Beck is talented enough to deliver across genres in spades - Guero is ace.

By dan321
Format:Audio CD
Guero has received generally strong reviews. People have often mentioned how it harks back to the era of Odelay, but in Guero he has created something that I have found to be new and very unlike Odelay. The strong opener E-Pro sounds like the beginning of a danceable and uncompromising rock album, yet it blends and blends well into the unusual and joyous hip- hop track Que Onda Guero, filled with horn samples and shouting. Then another twist with the short Computer Gamey introduction to Girl, which soon emerges as a wonderful acoustic-ish sing along, with a creepy and ghostly narrative.
These changes in style continue throughout the album, but they blend so well together because they often maintain a strong rhythm. Missing sees Beck singing more clearly than ever before and the strong bossa nova rhythm is maintained throughout Missing, making the sparse funkiness of Black Tambourine seem a natural follow up. The Spanish sounds continue with Earthquake Weather which also melds hip hop and pop and Money Mark on the Organ.
The terse Hell Yes is funky, but is much simpler than the layered tracks of Midnite Vultures. Christina Ricci's Japanese vocals add charm. The album becomes quite subtle for the next few tracks, but doesn't dip in quality- the epic Broken Drum, the countrified and danceable Scarecrow, the toe tapping Go It Alone and the death march of Farewell Ride. A car engine starts up beginning Rental Car. It starts out quite rocky and then leads to it's amazing, somewhat baroque yeah, yeah, yeah chorus with clavinet. As if it could get no better, you hear Petra Haden's quirky and cheerful vocals. The track stops quite abruptly for the reflective and prayer- like Emergency Exit.

5.0 out of 5 stars White Boy Masterpiece 17 April 2005
Format:Audio CD
This IS the album Beck has been aiming for all these years. This has to be his most accomplished piece of work to date. All of the elements from previous outings are included here, but now honed to perfection. Beck has never been one to hide his influences, and they all come flooding out on this CD. Listen to the album and hear shades of Nirvana, Nick Drake, Parliament, Gilberto Gil and, ironically, Beck himself - he's drawn on the previous album for influences and taken all the best bits.
Very highly recommended and, along with Kaiser Chiefs' "Employment", a likely candidate for "Album of the Year"

4.0 out of 5 stars a palette of beck sounds..... 1 April 2005
By Andrew
Format:Audio CD
guero is just great - previously, though, beck showed off his ability of eclectic song writing by releasing whole albums rotating around particular styles (with him going wildly off tangent at times), this time he has seemingly brought in all the styles he's mastered previously in this single album - from the mellow gold scarecrow to the odelay e-pro to the mutations missing to the midnite vultures hell yes and the sea change broken drum - and still he manages to do this with incredible ease creating an album which has beck written all over it. it's a sort of greatest hits album of unreleased songs - excellent for the unitiated and very satisfying to the connoisseur. (try to get hold of the import versions with send a message to her!!!!)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Beckology Continues 10 April 2006
By Phill
Format:Audio CD
Although only owning one other Beck album "Sea Change" and thinking it was a genius i decided to by "Guero" his much anticipated follow-up. "Guero" dabbles with rap and flirts with hip-hop beats still keeping a somewhat alternative sound.
1.E-Pro - A song that has a most distinct rock sound more than any other song on the album its really cool the distorted guitar mixed with the somewhat camp "Na Na Na's" make it very catchy and enjoyable 10/10
2.Que Onda Guero? - This is one of the albums highlights nice beat which goes with the vibe of the song Beck rapping has always something i frowned at but i think it works well for him i found out that "Guero" is a slurr the spanish people in his neighbour used to call him roughly translate as "White Boy" this is one of the best songs on the album 10/10
3.Girl - The cool Atari-esque intro then kicking into a feel good rock-lite song just about a girl he really likes this was one of the singles as well i dunno why it didn't do well it fits in perfectly with whats out now but oh well i still love it 9/10
4.Missing - Has a bit of a spanish feel to it Back hums in the background which somehow gives it cool atmosphere i love the way he sings on this one the string arrangement make it sounds eerie which i like another album highlight 10/10
5.Black Tambourine - Although not the longest track on the album it definately sticks out very catchy and jus one of the coolest songs it's too bad this isnt longer 9/10
6.Earthquake Weather - I felt this has a very distinct R&B feel to it has a nice laid back feel to it this should have been one of the singles i enjoyed this one alot and have had it on repeat a few times before 10/10
