Released: June 2008
‘Modern Guilt’ was a short, often sonically meandering and lyrically baffling kind of an album, and its preview track was no exception. By this point Beck had more than settled into his role as one of America’s most chameleonic, constantly compelling performers, and on this he delivered a mantra of conspiracy theorist paranoia that only served to intrigue us all even further. His beautiful falsetto here sits beautifully over an elastic bassline, propulsive drums and some marvellously intricate production courtesy of Danger Mouse. Quite simply: this was one of the finest pieces of music Beck has made in this or any other decade.
