About this album

Modern Guilt is the eleventh studio album by American alternative musician Beck. It was released on July 8, 2008. The album fulfilled Beck’s recording contract with Interscope Records. Modern Guilt features two contributions by Cat Power and was produced by Beck and Danger Mouse. A vinyl edition of the album, including download codes for 320-kbit/s MP3s direct from the master vinyl, was released on July 22, 2008. The album entered both the Billboard 200 and the Canadian Albums Chart at number four, and gave Beck his first ever Top 10 placing on the UK Albums Chart, peaking at number nine. The album has also been Beck’s best charting album in Australia, reaching 13. In the US, the album sold 84,000 copies in its first week. Although successful, this does not match the first week sales of The Information, which were 99,000. In Canada, the album sold over 6,000 copies in its first week.

    severely underrated indeed! i can't seem to understand really, how come it is so very under appreciated, and by so many beck fans too... i've seen so many reviews deeming it as his most bland and/or uninspired work; i swear i can't come even near to conceiving how you could get such an impression as that from it! to me it is just such a deep and insightful, and truly ingenious and original piece of work, the lyrics are all just so very rich and intense, and so are the compositions the melodies and harmonies... it just boggles my mind that people'd see it as insipid in anyway...

    Best album to listen to when you feel sterile, cold and alienated from the surrounding world and phenomena. [2]

    Usually I listen to a track for a million times whe it's stuck in my head. This is the first album to do so. [2] this has some truth in it!

    Absolutely solid record. The cover photo, as usual for Beck, is perfect for the feel of the album as well.

    God I love this album to death, though not as much as Sea Change...

    I absolutely love it. My first serious encounter with Beck, which turned out to be fatal, haha. A "less is more" record par excellence.

    Modern Guilt and Odelay are Beck's easy-listening albums. #notanegativecomment
