Beck returns with a mouth-watering feast of beats and grooves crafted by himself and his old Odelay accomplices the Dust Brothers. Most of Guero dips into the scrawny lo-fi hip hop of Odelayand even Mellow Gold. The fat dusty beats meet keening bottleneck scrapes. the rhythms range from a lilting Tropicalia reprise, 60's r'n'b and stoner punk-funk whilst one track features a stubby bassline courtesy of jack white. Beck is back and that means good news for everyone.
