Modern Guilt

Beck's new album, Modern Guilt, produced with Brian "Danger Mouse" Burton, contains 10 new songs, and with the exception of last year's Grammy-nominated, digital-only single "Timebomb", Modern Guilt is the first new material Beck has written since the prolific stretch that produced 2005's platinum Guero and 2006's universally acclaimed The Information. Modern Guilt is a tightly assembled group of songs that range in lyrical tone from introspection and social commentary to off-the-cuff wordplay and lighthearted humor. Musically, the album's ten tracks vacillate between economy and experimentation, hybrid and pop classicism, while consistently manifesting Beck and Danger Mouse's shared interest in psych-rock, folk, electronic minimalism, and orchestration.

But don't kill him baby, because he still makes very good music after about 20-25 years in the business. This is THE cd for summer '08! This whole cd is typical Beck except for Chemtrails - the coolest song he's done since Debra, which was an overrated song. I saw him in concert once and he kept doing Mick Jagger poses over and over and over, it was funny. This album is like the third in a on-going trilogy - he's made 3 really really good albums in a row now. It was so good, I can't wait to buy the next one.

Modern guilt by Beck is a great album an underappreciated masterpiece. For very many reasons listening through it there is almost nothing i would want to change. So to start off....................... Track 1 :orphans, a very good song that is a great start for the album with its memorable thumping noise at the beginning that builds up into a very good song 4/5 Track 2 : gamma ray, This song is not quite as good as orphans but still serves as an above average song, the lyrics remind me of paranoid people for example, I could hold-hold out for now what with these icecaps melting down.. the song also has a part after the second chorus that sounds like a bunch of circus animals playing in unison... overall a pretty good track 3/5 Track 3 : chemtrails, after hearing this song i almost want to put ( of the thundering drums) next to the title a great song that seems to create some sort of fantasy landscape 4/5 Track 4 : modern guilt, this is one of the incredible songs on the album all of the album is good but only some of the songs are great, captures feeling detached and paranoid perfectly 5/5 Track 5 : youthless, not my favorite but it has some very memorable lines, : tied my leg to a barricade with a plastic handgrenade, 3/5 Track 6 : walls, once again another great song 4/5 Track 7 : Replica, a very well made song a bit weird sounding at first but in the end very well made/written 4/5 Track 8 : Soul of a man, very very catchy this song and the lyrics flow together really well( even though the lyrics dont make much sense) 4/5 Track 9 : Profanity prayers, a great song musical genuis and ironically unlike much of becks early work contains no profanity 5/5 Track 10 :Volcano, This song as well as being the last on the album is the last truly great song, A masterpiece i cant even desribe it very well 5/5. The only really qualm with this great album is that the sound is very quiet Making not the greatest album for the stereo but perfect for ipods and portable CD players - CM.
