I've been listening to Sky Blue Sky a lot the last few days. It really is sublime.

I can't imagine it won't be in my top 5 at the end of the year. I am hoping another album comes out and rocks my world a bit more. You know, the kind of "wow. did I just hear that" type of album.

If I've managed to hold out this long, I'm pretty sure I'll make it a few more weeks until Sky Blue Sky's official release.

I've only heard 2 songs: Walken & You Are My Face, I'm trying to hold out for the album.
I find both those songs to be super, I do hope the rest of the album kicks ass.

Usually I think waiting is a waste of time, but the quality of the bootleg I have is pretty bad, so that might be a good idea...

I don't feel I'm wasting time by waiting for the release. I have plenty of other music to keep me entertained. I've only heard "What Light." I like it, don't love it. Really looking forward to the many May releases!

MUCH Agreed!

I bought it for that song alone. And it was well worth it.

What is up with all the hatred of SBS from the fanbase? I went on viachicago and it seems like the fanbase is split between "amazing " and "Lame, weak, boring, etc..."

I don't get it. What's not to love?

I'm waiting for the release but haven't been wowed by what little I've heard yet. I've never not been wowed by Wilco before so I'm a bit worried. But the last two were pretty hard to beat.

My favorite description of this record so far is "complex, but not complicated". It's a very straightforward record compared to previous efforts, but that's not detrimental to its overall quality. The songwriting is superb throughout, and that's the key to its greatness. There are no strange tape loops or wankerific noise solos anymore, and that appears to have scared the fanbase silly. The guitar playing from Nels is shockingly good, the best (technically) I've ever heard on a Wilco record.

Ultimately, this is probably one of the most challenging things they've ever done, simply because it defies expectations so often throughout. I figured they would fall back into their usual weirdness-laced-with-alt-country formula, but they never did. Scary stuff right there.

Well that's encouraging. I love their "beautiful noise" but I can appreciate the band's desire to move beyond it on this record. In fact, isn't that why we love Wilco? Because they just keep growing and not sticking to formula or expectations?

Nels.

Better guitar than on "A Ghost is Born"??
