Schmilco is pretty boring, I'll give you that. The Whole Love is the last time they really caught my attention for more than a few minutes, certain isolated songs notwithstanding.

You didn't mention A Ghost Is Born, so get onto that.

One man's staid and boring is another man's placid and beautiful.

I'll tell you why I prefer Schmilco to what I consider Wilco's most boring album, Sky Blue Sky: they went all the way with it. Everything about Schmilco is going in the same direction, with the same destination. The sound is uniformly feverish and organic; you can hear the creaks, the movement in the studio. They use negative space so well on this album that it makes all the little moments captivating. The lyrics are also oblique enough that they reward multiple listens. It's a really good album. Not for all moods and situations, but it's well made and has unique qualities about it.

Then you've got Sky Blue Sky (and a handful of self-titled album tracks as well, particularly near the end). It's so fucking grey and neutral. I don't know what else to call it. The album sounds like a lot of different bands, but lifeless versions of them: boring Beatles, boring Allman Brothers Band, boring Wilco. The concept of the album is broadly "I'm mature now" and that comes through in the lyrics, which are all about being old and boring and are too vague to captivate. People call this a dad rock album, but I love dad rock and when I have a kid, I'm still going to find this album far more boring than Schmilco.

And seriously, listen to A Ghost Is Born.

Nels himself said that he prefers Whole Love over Sky Blue Sky. Welp

it was more about the process of making/writing for the record more than songs themselves, though.
