The pop chameleon Beck returns for a tenth studio LP, this time produced under the watchful eye of the prolific Dangermouse. Ever the contrarian, Beck's evolving sound here pays homage to British beat groups of the 1960s, especially on cuts like 'Beggars Shoes' and the title track itself. In keeping with this more economical sound and approach, the album itself is notably shorter than previous Beck efforts, barely scraping over the half-hour mark. 'Modern Guilt' also benefits from the contribution of Cat Power on backing vocals on several songs.
