I think you nailed it there Melon, this album reminds me so much of a late-era beatles album that just focuses on extremely tight musicianship and incredible songwriting.

^agreed!

Are you guys going to buy the normal or deluxe version? do you think the extra dvd is worth the price?

Deluxe all the way, but that's an easy choice for this rabid Wilco fanatic.

ok, i won't be making any friends here.
i can't stand his voice. sounds like a cross between willie nelson and bob dylan and it sounds really out of tune to me. listened to the video and all the samples on amazon. it's not working for me at all. i think i'd rather dust off my allman brothers, lynyrd skynyrd or even my tom petty when i get a hankerin' for a little southern fried rock. and of course zz just rocks period.
maybe this is an acquired taste like okra.

hmm that's interesting, surprisingly tweedy for me has always been a voice of ease, it's melodic, sweet and simple. i've never found him to be an acquired taste as dylan, springsteen and waits have otherwise been for me.

Just some little ruminations on my part, but...

Why was there even the slightest hesitation to release Yankee Hotel Foxtrot in the first place? If it was because of the quality of the record, it's pretty clear the record executives were wrong. If the question was the marketability of the album, I have to ask:

Were Kamera and Heavy Metal Drummer on the original version of album? It really hit me tonight how sweet and fun these songs are. They're totally marketable and catchy. I'm The Man Who Loves You (with the noodling removed) could also have been a big hit.

This is actually a really great record, and it took me a while to pick up on that. I still think it's overrated by Pitchfork and members of the indietastic music listening world, but that doesn't mean it's not great.

So, fellow Wilco nuts, can someone help me out with this dilemma I'm having?

I have the following Wilco albums:

Summerteeth (B+)
Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (A-)
Sky Blue Sky (A-)

Which album should I get next, Being There or A Ghost Is Born? I have no idea which one I would like better, and they both seem to get good reviews...

As much as I like Being There, I would strongly recommend A Ghost Is Born. It has some of Wilco's strongest songs: At Least That's What You Said, Hell is Chrome, Spiders , Wishful Thinking, Theologians........ IMO, it is as good as YHF.
