Beck 

Guerolito

The marketplace is cluttered with remixes that play like glorified covers, lazily pasted-together retreads exhibiting little imagination. That's not the case with Guerolito, the remixed companion piece to Beck's latest gem, largely because the rich, interwoven ingredients in the artist's stylistic melting pot lend themselves so naturally to such a treatment. That, and the fact that the talent (Air, Beastie Boys) is A-list. Not that the mix doesn't have its share of missteps: Islands' wildly disjointed, slowed-to-a-crawl take on "Que Onda Guero" wipes out all traces of the original's funky swagger. But Guerolito is far more than a souvenir for meticulous collectors, if only for Air's typically lush reinvention of "Missing" and Ghost Range's rollicking, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink production of "E-Pro."
