SYNDICATE
Posted by: Dave on April 11, 2005 at 4:41 pm

Sounds: A steady mix of Beck’s sillier and more mature sides; slacker, white-boy rapping (with occasional Spanglish) meets sample-laden rock, Latino and funk rhythms, and folktronica; atmospheric, acoustic ballads; calypso; basically a sample of everything Beck’s done over his career
Heavy Rotation track: Que Onda Gueroicon
Medium Rotation tracks: The resticon
Recommended: To Beck fans and anyone looking for a consistently groovin’ listen with impressive variety. He’s done all of these styles before, but each track stakes a new claim in his catalog (though there are fewer standouts than usual). If you think Odelayicon and Midnite Vulturesicon get a little too bizarre at times, and you think Mutationsicon and Sea Changeicon are a little too laid back, Gueroicon falls safely in the middle.
Grade: A- (Top 20 Albums of 2005 candidate)
