  • Summary: Beck's latest LP, 'Guero,' is remixed track-for-track by the likes of Air, Boards Of Canada, El-P and Subtle.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 13 out of 21
  2. Negative: 0 out of 21
  1. It's a studio-geek jam session that, in terms of sonic inventiveness, nearly beats the DJ-savvy original. [16 Dec 2005, p.82]
  2. Most of [the remixers] subtly tweak the originals into charming facsimiles of Beck's clap-happy, orchestral folk-blues funk ditties. [Mar 2006, p.138]
  3. A surprisingly cohesive rethink that manages several times to outshine its source material.
  4. Over the course of the LP... the toe-tapping comfortably outweighs the head-scratching.
  5. Even for an artist this venerable, a remix record is still a remix record-- generally uneven, part enlightening, and part skippable.
  6. What becomes clear quickly is that... Beck still makes a better Beck album than anybody else. [#12, p.94]
  7. Guerolito's songs dissolve in an anonymous stream of chugging electro and dub effects. [Feb 2006, p.101]
