Album: Guero
Artist: Beck
-------------------------------------------

Where to begin? Beck's last effort was a complete 180 of style. He dropped the computer beats and white man raps, and went with the acoustic, emotional style that had hipsters praising his efforts. It was a solid album, no doubt, but anyone who grew with Beck knows he is at his best when he is funking out.

Guero, leaked early and often, no one was sure of the actual tracklist, or what the beats were going to actually be. What it is is a return to all the things Beck does well. The Dust Brother's produced this album and it takes part of the madness of Odelay, and the funk of Midnite Vultures. Throw in the emotion Beck drew upon on his last release, and you have Beck's best album to date.

The album is a mix of pop, funk, and hip hop. It is sure to be pounding at parties and in cars as they cruise down Queen. The title track, is as funky a song as I have heard in years. Girl plows ahead, nestling an acoustic riff, and a catchy chorus over a driving beat. This album, like most of Beck's other releases has to be heard to be appreciated. White dude, computer beats, rapping and singing. Sounds generic, but when done right, it sounds great. Beck is one that can do it right.
