The first show I saw was incredible:

The second was a festival set but it had Whole Love stuff and they played Cinnamon Girl with My Morning Jacket, so I can't complain.

I downloaded the albmu, kinda liked it.

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.
Oh right, I do remember that. I've seen them in all kinds of venues and the sit-down theater doesn't do their shows justice (much as my body loves a good seat these days). I have seen Wilco shows that felt flat energetically though the music always sounded great. Red Rocks was just one of those special things that I was lucky to be at.

Poor Places was a late bloomer for me from YHF. Now it's one of my favorites.

Really hoping I'll get another chance to see them soon.

Poor Places is great as well, and I've always loved Reservations.

It's fucking badass that they dropped a free album and played it in full at a FESTIVAL the very next night.

Totally. I was saying on Twitter that they are a very fun band to follow. It's like the Flaming Lips if they hadn't become incredibly self-indulgent and a Wayne Coyne-Katy Weaver-Miley Cyrus sideshow.

I was going to say "there's nothing on that setlist I wouldn't be delighted to hear." And then I saw Walken. That song annoys me but still, great setlist.

Coyne has become a total ass, but at least his band has a personality. I maintain that Tweedy is the lamest frontman of any supposedly great band I can think of, and I'm talking particularly about his vocal approach.

I don't like Sky Blue Sky all that much, but those songs had a certain jam band appeal to them. A bit heavier, very loose and casual. Plus, they've all disappeared from the set except for Impossible Germany (which should never leave as long as Nels Cline is in the band) so the novelty of it is interesting in hindsight.

Lame's maybe not the word I'd use. I see where you're coming from but I think he's pretty charming, not lame in a derogatory sense

Jimmy Fallon and Chris Martin are lame. The Panther's jokes are lame. That's where the bar is currently set.

They both have a bit of charm.

Imagine Dragons, that's where fucking lame sits.

Tweedy is hilarious when he wants to be. Lame? I don't agree. But, I will say all of the other members of the band are perhaps more interesting to watch and there's a lot going on onstage so it's really satisfying in that way, that I don't need Tweedy to be anything other than what he is.

That clip of him doing Black Eyed Peas acoustic is one of the funniest things I've ever seen, so he gets a pass mark from me. Dude seems genuinely funny and laid-back to me.

You seem to be talking about their live presence and I'm referring to their recorded output. I don't think he's a captivating vocalist. He bores me.

Should I have used "boring" instead of "lame"?
