Product Description

Amazon.ca

Now that Beck has effectively exorcised his personal demons with 2002's hyper-confessional Sea Change, he can get back to the business of being a total fruit loop. We all know what that involves: video game sound effects, random shouting in Spanish, and rhymes about popsicles and vegetable vans. And that's just the second track. Guero is like every Beck album condensed into one, a no-holds-barred collision of two-turntables and a microphone with the added bonus of guitars, bossa nova beats, Jack White, lyrics about spaceships and dump truck full of ideas all fighting to get heard about the ruckus. It's an exhausting and exhilarating listen with lots of peaks, such as the digitized power ballad "Broken Drum" and handclap drench folk freak-out "Farewell Ride," and more than enough to restore anyone's faith in Beck as one of the most chaotically inspired songwriters of our time. -- Aidin Vaziri

Product Description

Three years after the critically acclaimed and heart wrenching 'Sea Change' Beck returns with 'Guero', that reunites Beck with classic co-conspirators the Dust Brothers. Beck explores territories uncharted by even this most innovative artist of his generation. Interscope. 2005.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guero is Beck's Best May 31 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I usually find that with Beck's albums there is some gold, but that it is not pure gold all the way through. However, Guero is pure gold. I bought this edition spontaneously because I liked the variety and quality of Guero soooo much. I had no idea that it would be worth the extra money. I just hoped. It turns out that the seven bonus tracks (3 unreleased songs from the recording sessions and 4 remixes) are, on the whole, enjoyable (and/or unique), not taking away from the listening experience. It is a 79 minute CD because of them. More minutes for your money I say!

But wait...there's more! (I had to say that) The 2nd disc is a DVD which contains all of the normal Beck album in lossless 5.1 sound along with a variety of visual effects specific to each song to choose from as you zone out to the music. It is truly an audio-visual experience! Truly, the surround mix is great. Farewell Ride sticks out as one that is a must hear in 5.1! There are two easy-to-find DVD easter eggs: both of which are music videos (in 5.1 nonetheless) for e-Pro and Black Tambourine (two versions). There are also a variety of photos included on the DVD and in the booklet, essentially all of the artwork for the album that got Beck's sanctioning.

My one complaint is how the hardcover book presentation, although cool in idea, easily collects scuffs and dents which are permanent. If you try removing the unfortunate fingerprints this paper type seems to collect, there is the potential of tearing the paper. However, don't let that aesthetic take away from all that is good within. The liner notes are unique and informative for those that peruse them.

All in all, an enjoyable purchase that I am sure will be listened to for the years to come (by me and others...maybe you).

5.0 out of 5 stars Guero rocks Dec 30 2005
By Calvin
Format:Audio CD
this cd is amazing. all the songs are good and there arent any songs that make you cring, like on some other albums. beck is a truly underrated artist, and his music gets no radioplay here, which is a shame. the video for girl is also great, and beck deserves much more recognition.

4.0 out of 5 stars A joyous and well-rounded outing June 26 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First let me qualify this review: I am not a "Beck-head". That said, I appreciated (although was not crazy about) his early discs... However, on Guero, Beck manages to "mature" (such a dirty work in young pop music) gracefully, melding great melodies to shades (instead of globs) of musical inventiveness.
The groove feels a bit more organic too. Overall, a truly great disc (for me, almost a "5"). (Thank you to the local - Detroit - NPR station for getting me hooked on it, then buying it on Amazon.ca)
Cheers.

5.0 out of 5 stars freaking excellent beck May 12 2005
Format:Audio CD
Received this for my 43rd birthday and now i have to hunt in my 15 year olds room for it. Guess i should buy her a copy too. Absolutely love this cd and all its different musical styles. Along with Weezer's Make Believe, and Garbage's Bleed Like Me, this is a huge favourite in my cd player. I have seen Weezer and Garbage recently, now Beck, please, when will you be here? Love it.
