You guys know that some LA Mexican cuisine restaurant is going to start serving the "guerolito" after Beck's Guero remix album, Guerolito, hits store on the 13th. I wonder what the edible version will taste like ...
Well -- I like the remix album ... a lot! Often times, "remix album" are just loose collections of various bands' takes on a few songs. So many "remix albums" contain just three or four songs from the original album, which makes listening to the thing a little tiresome, and in the end, not very meaningful.
Well, Beck's "remix album" is quite different. Every track is remixed and the tracklist stayed intact. Beck has, almost overnight, become a sort of rock savior, I think ... his new site is incredibly interactive (check out the Guerolito Media Player), and the mere fact that he had his whole album remixed just shows me that he is more than willing to share his music, on or off the internet.
So -- check out some remixes before you buy the album!
