Modern Guilt is the eighth studio album by American musician Beck. It was released on July 8, 2008. The album fulfills Beck's recording contract with Interscope Records. Outside of North America, the record was released by XL Recordings (see 2008 in music).
The album received generally positive reviews upon release, earning a rating of 77 out of 100 on Metacritic. Filter said of the album "Beck is somehow more aware while puffing out his waves of broken poetry as opposed to the casual seed-spitting he has been known to turn to," and Allmusic said that it was "an effective dosage of 21st century paranoia. Some negative reviews, such as Popmatters, said that the album "lacks the unique resonating timbres one is accustomed to with Beck, and The Guardian called it "a vanity project".
