Amen. I can't wait to get a hard copy of this into my super-duper stereo system back home.

The 15th is the date of my last final, so I'll have SBS to get me back home to Dallas the following day. Equal parts SBS and Feist's The Reminder, which comes out Tuesday and I've yet to hear. I haven't waited out an album since X&Y, so this is exciting for me.

I'm looking forward to hearing how the SBS songs pan out live. I've seen Walken performed twice and Impossible Germany once. I also saw Tweedy do What Light solo. I really want to see You Are My Face and Hate It Here though. Side With The Seeds will be nice too.

Bit of imp13 trivia: I've always loved them and held them in the top five, but Wilco has overtaken Radiohead as my favorite group.

Since I stupidly missed the tickets for their N.A. tour go on sale, the only chance I'll really have to see them live this year would be at Bonnaroo, which is still in negotiations, and I probably won't know for sure if I'm going there for a few weeks anyhow.

Yeah, I was interested in the Roo this year, but it's just not good for me right now from a financial standpoint. I already bought my 3 day pass for ACL and I'm sure they'll be there anyway. If not, they'll roll through Austin at some point.

I'm really lucky I got to see Tweeds on campus twice this year already.

SBS is a great album. Maybe not their best musically, but the songwriting is great. I'm interested to see what their setlist will look like when they mix the new songs with the older ones. I'm glad I'm going to see them in May and in July this year.

Sky Blue Sky is available to preorder on iTunes now. Apparently as a bonus you also get the video for Walken and an extra track.


That extra track is LET'S NOT GET CARRIED AWAY.

Damn. Now I don't know what format to get. I'll probably still get the special edition CD/DVD though.

Wilco 'Sky Blue Sky'

I listened to it once, and didn't really appreciate it. I listened to it again, and LOVED it so much. This album is not like their last 2 IMO, but it truly is Wilco and is unique. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

It's grown on me as well. On first listen it came across as a bit boring and luckluster. On multiple listens, the simplicity and beauty of this album really hits you.

Good Stuff!
