Beck is feeling some guilty pleasure with his nice debut on the Canadian album charts this week.

His new album "Modern Guilt" debuted at No. 4, selling over 6,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan data.

It marks his most successful chart placement since 2005's "Guero," which peaked at No. 2 in 1996.

However, Beck couldn't beat out Coldplay's "Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends" (17,000) which remained at No. 1 for a fourth straight week, marking the longest consecutive stay at No. 1 since Josh Groban's "Noel" (the album spent the last four weeks of 2007 at No. 1).

Also ahead of Beck was the Lost Fingers' "Lost in the 80's" (12,000) at No. 2, and the "Camp Rock" soundtrack at No. 3.

Meanwhile, Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter III" remained at No. 5, Katy Perry's "One of the Boys" came up one to No. 6, and the "Mamma Mia" soundtrack checked in at No. 7.

Rounding out the top 10 was Jaydee Bixby's "Cowboys and Cadillacs" at No. 8, Kid Rock's "Rock N Roll Jesus" at No. 9, and Rihanna's "Good Girl Gone Bad" at No. 10.

The only other notable first week entry was Matt Mays & El Torpedo's "Terminal Romance" at No. 19.

In the U.S., Lil Wayne remains in the top spot, followed by Coldplay in second, the "Camp Rock" soundtrack in third, Beck in fourth, and Kid Rock in fifth.
