Beck, Modern Guilt: Pop's two cleverest auteurs decide to carpool.

Ratatat, LP3: Studio whizzes twist electronic pop into an intricate spectacle.

Patti Smith and Kevin Shields, The Coral Sea: Musical mavericks pay tribute to renegade photographer.

Melvins, Nude With Boots: Sludge-punk godfathers lumber on with caveman insouciance.

Son Ambulance, Someone Else's Déjá Vu: Lavish, expensive '70s rock reprised as artsy indie craftiness.

Mugison, Mugiboogie: One-man band deftly ditches Mellow Gold for Beatlemania.

The Black Ghosts, The Black Ghosts: Longtime Britpop fiends create a bleakly appealing song suite.
