Beck is back, and his new album “Guero” is the best since … well, his last one. Suffice to say that Beck Hansen has always produced quality records, “Guero” is no exception.

However, from an artist noted for frequent musical mutations (pun intended), “Guero” seems surprisingly reminiscent of his past work.

It’s not so much that “Guero” is a reiteration of any one album from Beck’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 “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” proves true here.

“Hell Yes” prominently features Christina Ricci saying “Please enjoy,” “I like your bass,” and “Your beat is nice,” in a vaguely sexual manner.
