Pretty certain Ghost is my favorite Wilco album. The Whole Love is the next best thing since.

And I was just popping by to say I liked Star Wars better.

The songs sounded great live last weekend, though.

Definitely.

Star Wars was carried by You Satellite.

I used to hate these guys so much, and I don't even know why. I haven't even heard it, and it makes me happy knowing they have a new album and good friends from the present and past are likely enjoying it. Music causes weird feelings, especially when you've been drinking a lot of alcohol.

I've seen them 4 times now, and I just really, really dig them.

Sky Blue Sky and The Whole Love are my favorites, although Summerteeth and Being There are close.

There really isn't an album of theirs I don't like a lot (barring this and Ster Wars but only because ice only listened to each ever once). Pretty sure Iw as one of the only people here willing to go up to bat for Wilco (The Album) at the time. Maybe still?

I think Wilco is putting together a really good decade for themselves. The Whole Love is their most acclaimed album since at least 2004, Star Wars was a great gift for fans with some terrific standouts and Schmilco is yet another good one that's completely different from the last two. They're definitely closing out the 2010s better than they did the 2000s.

Part of it is that, I don't know, it really felt like Sky Blue Sky and Wilco (The Album) were self-consciously low-key and unassuming, as if they were purposely reining in their creativity after A Ghost Is Born. The new albums tread somewhat similar ground in some respects, but they feel more lived-in and natural to me.

Maybe you need to get back on the VWagon. Stick to drinking Wilcoffee.

It's particularly impressive to have this good a run when they are now well into their third decade (with different formations of course). It does feel they finally managed to find a way to balance out the weirdness and tension of their early 2000s albums with more self-assured songwriting, while bringing something new every time. It helps that Jeff is in a better place now - or maybe not so much a better place, but a place with a better perspective.

And the live show continues to deliver, perhaps better than anyone. I've now seen them every tour since Sky Blue Sky, and I'm not sure which show I like better. The Star Wars show I saw was outstanding.

I'm enjoying this more than Star Wars. It's very laid-back but there is enough happening to keep you interested. And most of the songs are just good. If I Ever Was A Child is the stand-out so far for me.

With their last two albums Wilco has seemingly stopped trying to make their albums big statements. That's the vibe I get at least. Even if it's just because the albums are short and without a show-stopping longer track.

Being There, Summerteeth, and Yankee Hotel are their three best and they haven't made another one that's even very close.

And to expand on that, if you don't think Yankee Hotel is their best album you're an idiot.

I don't think Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is their best album.


I mean, it's close, oh yeah. But I'd have to reach for either Summerteeth or A Ghost is Born first.

YHF is chock full of awesome hooks front to back, sonically lush and I Am Trying To Break Your Heart might be my favorite song from them. A Ghost is Born is more adventurous to my ears. At least in a direction I find more appealing.
