4.0 out of 5 stars It's remixed Beck, but it's still Beck ... Dec 13 2005
By Dustin Perry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was thoroughly pleased with Beck's newest album "Guero," which was released in March. I thought it echoed several elements of nearly all of his previous releases, but was still a great collection of songs nonetheless (easily the best of 2005, and, yes, I'm biased.)

If you find yourelf hankering for more of Mr. Hansen's work this holiday season, you really can't go wrong with his new remix album "Guerolito," hardcore Beck fan or not. If you're a Beck completist (which I am), you'll discover after your first listen that only nine of the album's 14 tracks are new -- a few were snagged from the deluxe version of "Guero," a few more from the vinyl- and online-only "Ghettochip Malfunction" EP, and a few from the "Girl" and "E-Pro" singles.

For the most part, the remixers at the helm of these tracks do good work with the source material. None of the remixes quite surpass the original songs, but they are all as good or almost as good, to a point.

As long as Beck is still making music, I'll still listen to it. Now, the two things on my list for next Christmas are a live album and a B-Side/unreleased/scrapped/alternate take box set from Mr. Two Turntables and a Microphone.

2.0 out of 5 stars Different Dec 21 2005
By MC Hep Cee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Very Different from Guero. Three quarters of the album can be shelved after a listen, just a interesting/inferior other version. The remaining tracks shine, giving you a total different sound. The mellow remixes are rewarding.

2.0 out of 5 stars Know there's something missing Sept. 4 2006
By E. Kutinsky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought Guerolito after hearing "Heaven Hammer," the remixed version of Guero's "Missing." That remix, by Air, is the sort of product that makes remixes valid - it takes the passion and yearning lost in the original production of "Missing" and makes it feel at home in a louder, more tempting sonic landscape. That song became astonishing where the Guero song was simply alright, and the new song, "Clap Hands," is at least a good time. However, it's hard to swallow the cobbled remixes on the rest of Guerolito - the beat and the original of, say, "Earthquake Weather," (here as "Terromoto Tempo") are both individually appealing enough, but together sound dismayingly like they're from different planets and belong nowhere near each other. "E-Pro" becomes a groaning mess, the lovely "Farewell Ride" an electronic nightmare, and both those descrptions would be apt to describe the record as a whole.

4.0 out of 5 stars pleasant remix album Aug. 2 2006
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In March, 2005, Beck issued "Guero", his best album since "Odelay" and the album that returned Beck to commercial success after the ambitious but disappointing 2002 "Sea Change" album. Then, without much hoopla or fanfare, Beck issued "Guerolito" (literally, Guero-lite) in December, 2005.

"Guerolito" (14 tracks, 54 min.) brings the 13 tracks of the original album, plus 1 new song. The tracks are presented in the same order as on "Geuro", and that helps a lot for the flow of the album. The amount of reworking of the tracks varies but generally speaking is never so dramatic that you wouldn't recognize the tune, which is definitely a plus. Best of the bunch for me are "Ghost Range (E-Pro)", "Terremoto Tempo (Earthquake Weather)" and "Ghettochip Malfunction (Hell Yes)". The new track "Clap Hands" is a great collaboration between Beck and the Dust Brothers, with lots of scratches and, well, handclapping.

While I'm generally not a great fan of remix album, I must say that this one was pleasant from beginning to end. This is not art with a capital A, and it never intended that. Just some fun remixes of fun songs. Perfect for the summertime.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dumbed down Feb. 25 2014
By James A. Haynes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Your milage may vary, but I found most of these re-mixes to be on the crude side, as in :"Let's sync our synth arpegiator to the original BPM and see what happens! Ok! We're done!" More like, ok, we're dumb. Love the original album, though, and was really looking forward to this....
