Beck - Modern Guilt

After two straight turds (note that I'm listening to Beck's album alphabetically, not chronologically. That's how they're laid out in itunes), I came upon this gem of an album. Modern Guilt is a breath of fresh air in the Beck catalogue. After years of forcing people to smell his feces and pretend they were roses, Beck actually made a decent album with songs that you can actually sing along with and everything. Modern Guilt is still off-kilter and non-conformist, but it doesn't think it's better than you, which is a nice change for Beck.

Baleeted? No. I need something to remind myself why anybody ever liked Beck in the first place, and this works.
