After a second, closer listen, I'll attempt to tentatively rank it.

1. Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (A)
2. Summerteeth (A)
3. Being There (A-)
4. The Whole Love (A-)
5. A Ghost Is Born (B+)
6. Star Wars (B+)
7. A.M. (B)
8. Wilco The Album (B)
9. Sky Blue Sky (B-)

First, unfair impression is; another in a lengthening line of okish Wilco albums with one or two real standouts. There's no One Sunday Morning here, needless to say, but You Satellite is probably the most impressive so far.

I feel like there's two kinds of Wilco: the kind that is influenced by Television, and the kind that isn't.

I'm not good at ranking but this strikes me as very close to how I might rank their catalog if I had to, though A Ghost is Born might rank slightly higher than The Whole Love due to sentimental value.

I like the nod to Radiohead on track eight.

That...seems like a stretch, lol. I like the song, though.

You Satellite is so good. I generally like their long songs.

I am 100% joking and referring to that Morrissey thread haha.

I've listened to You Satellite five times in the past hour already. Its shimmering guitar reminds me a bit of another long track from last year that I liked a lot, Return by Brian Eno and Karl Hyde.

Yeah, that track is all about Nels. His solos are always great, but I feel his best qualities are related to texture and layers. Probably comes from his jazz/experimental work.

I actually got that right away and then dismissed it as an unlikely reference for some reason.

My opinion isn't going to carry much weight here given my predilection for making fun of the band, but this is underwhelming. Looser and dirtier doesn't automatically equal good, and this is a pretty big step down from The Whole Love, which I though was a very good album. And Sky Blue Sky may not have much energy, but I think it's a more accomplished than this.

Standouts are the already-praised Your Satellite (which I think is already in danger of being overrated compared to other Wilco classics), Cold Slope (which reminded me of Pavement/Malkmus), and Taste the Ceiling.

I can't argue with any of that. I don't disagree really.

But I'm enjoying it. It's a nice surprise. I think there are a few songs that have the potential to go the long haul and take respectable places in a huge catalog of fantastic songs.

A.M. was released 20 years ago. Maybe the free download is an anniversary gift.

Speaking of A.M., I have a newfound appreciation for it. I really didn't like it when I started listening to Wilco, but nowadays I think it's a solid record with some excellent songs. I Must Be High, Box Full of Letters, Shouldn't Be Ashamed and Passenger Side are all great tunes. It is very consistent, and pretty unique alt-country territory that they didn't really explore again, not even in Being There.
