Beck is back, and his new album â€œGueroâ€ is the best since … well, his last one. Suffice to say that Beck Hansen has always produced quality records, â€œGueroâ€ is no exception.
However, from an artist noted for frequent musical mutations (pun intended), â€œGueroâ€ seems surprisingly reminiscent of his past work.
Itâ€™s not so much that â€œGueroâ€ is a reiteration of any one album from Beckâ€™s extensive back catalogue; it just sounds a bit like an amalgam of all the musical styles in which he has dabbled in the past. Fortunately, the old adage â€œIf it ainâ€™t broke, donâ€™t fix it,â€ proves true here.
â€œHell Yesâ€ prominently features Christina Ricci saying â€œPlease enjoy,â€ â€œI like your bass,â€ and â€œYour beat is nice,â€ in a vaguely sexual manner.
