Hey I listened to Summerteeth yesterday. There are a lot of really good songs on that.

Summerteeth is nice but I'd recommend A Ghost is Born. It's the one that has Handshake Drugs and Spiders on it. It also has ten minutes of feedback dedicated to Jeff Tweedy's migraine.

My favorite is Being There, so I guess I'm not gonna argue with that.

A Ghost Is Born > AM though. And I probably like it more than Summerteeth as well.

I guess standing around insufferable people stimulated Jeff. Although I feel bad for Bennet's post-Wilco life of course.

The first 8 tracks are varying degrees of brilliant, but the second half of AGIB is pretty weak. It loses me after Company In My Back and the 15 minute migraine impression kicks the album while it's down.

Summerteeth is one of my favorite albums of all time. I don't think Tweedy's lyrics have ever been better; they're that perfect midway point between unsettling abstraction and warm relatability. Musically, it expertly utilizes studio indulgence and top notch songwriting. My only knock on the album is that it's a couple tracks too long, but I'm not sure which ones I would remove. One of the great transitional records.

Musically, it's expertly placed between studio indulgence and well crafted songwriting. My only knock on the album is that it's a couple tracks too long, but I'm not sure which ones I would remove.

I won't argue with you about AGIB tapering off. I just find its highs to be considerably higher.

To each his own. At Least That's What You Said and Handshake Drugs are certainly career highlights. But then I think A Shot in the Arm, I'm Always In Love, Nothing'severgonnastandinmyway (Again) and Via Chicago are Wilco classics in their own right.

The thing is, pretty much all Wilco songs sound amazing live. That two-night Red Rocks gig three years ago when they played like 52 different songs? It was absolutely killer. There were no lows, no bad songs.

So was this album inspired by the movies or the missile defense program?

I don't know. But there's a cat on the cover.

I grow ever sadder about the gig I saw when people talk about how great they are live.

What happened at your gig? Did I miss something?

This is a really good review Wilco – Star Wars | Album Reviews | Consequence of Sound

B+ that reads like an A. (It's kind of over the top, actually.)

I can't find my old post, but I was pretty underwhelmed. I think a lot of it had to do with the venue (an all-seated theatre hall) which made it feel like a funeral parlour, and there was no energy from the crowd until finally a bunch of us ran to the front during the encore when they played Heavy Metal Drummer I think. It just all fell a bit flat for me.

Been listening to a heap of Wilco lately though. Ashes of American Flags and Pot Kettle Black are two songs I've grown to love quite a bit.
