Beck, one of the most eclectic figureheads in modern music, unleashes his most commercially appealing album in years with Guero. Having rekindled a production partnership with The Dust Brothers, who previously worked together on Becks seminal breakthrough Odelay, the chemistry has once again proven a hit.
From the Beastie Boys-sampling garage-rock single E-Pro, to the electro-tinged folk brilliance of Girl, Guero contains a beautiful m?nge of genre-defying sounds that all gel like a dream. Other album highlights include the downtempo Missing which find Beck singing at his most emotionally raw and commanding and Hell Yes, with its nod to the Detroit scene of the 80s.
With all its hip-hop beats, scuzzy guitar sounds, organ sequences plucked straight from The Doors, and enough gutsy blues and soul to give everything life, Guero is an album of substance that heralds the return of Beck to his most equally diverse and accessible.
This special Deluxe Edition includes a 56-page hardbook featuring a bonus disc of the album realized in D-fuse (imagery accompanying each track) as well as two exclusive videos.
