By JASON SILVERSTEIN Beck's "Modern Guilt" is a political album in the broadest sense of the term. It doesn't reference anything specific from recent headlines, name-drop any political figures or feature any kind of rally cry that will become especially relevant come election time. But it does have one prevalent theme that runs through all its songs: today's society is very, very messed up. The album kicks off with "Orphans," an ominous track that finishes by greeting the eventual...

Suffice to say, it's not...

By Greg Kot, Chicago Tribune Jul. 9--Beck's "Modern Guilt" (DGC), out this week, pairs the California pop gadfly with the producer of the moment, Danger Mouse. It would seem to be an ideal pairing, but its promise isn't fully realized. The collaboration sounds like it was dashed off between appointments on Danger Mouse's increasingly stocked calendar, which in recent years has included production work for Gnarls Barkley, Gorillaz and the Black Keys. The 10 tracks on "Modern Guilt" span a...

BECK "Modern Guilt" Grade: C-plus There's a point near the end of "Chemtrails" when elaborate drum fills are exploding like fireworks on the Fourth of July, cymbals are joyously crashing, guitars are raging and all Beck can do is moan over it all like a mopey Brian Wilson with a toothache. That pretty much sums up the method of operation on Beck's new "Modern Guilt" (Interscope) album. Danger Mouse provides the interesting musical backdrops and Beck provides the misery. As a package,...
