EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Dec 13, 2005; Lead Performance: Beck; Genre: Rock

Guerolito, a song-for-song remix of Beck's tasty Guero, is an im-pressive genetic modification. Beastie Boy Adrock morphs the Prince-ly ''Black Tambourine'' into old-school electro, hot Philly DJ-producer Diplo mashes up ''Go It Alone'' with the English Beat's ska anthem ''Twist and Crawl,'' and lesser-knowns like Islands step up and get freaky. It's a studio-geek jam session that, in terms of sonic inventiveness, nearly beats the DJ-savvy original.
