Wilco...where do I start?

One of the few newer bands I haven't dug into. I've never heard a song by these guys and want to start right now.

So, what album do I get first?

I hate Wilco

Yankee Foxtrot Hotel seems to be their most critically acclaimed album.

i only really got into them last year, having previously been truned off by the alt-country tag, but i'm really glad i gave them a chance. jeff tweedy is a fabulous songwriter.

i'm sure bear, joyful girl and elvis presley will be able to give you more informed opinions, but yeah, yankee hotel foxtrot is absolutely stellar, followed closely by a ghost is born.

the kicking television: live in chicago cds are a good overview as well.

I really like YHF and A Ghost Is Born as well. I bought them at the same time and really really enjoy them.

If anybody says anything other than Summerteeth, then he/she either doesn't know the band well enough to answer or, more likely, he/she simply didn't understand what you were asking for.

If you want a place to start, start here. It is everything the band has become and everything the band ever was all at the same time. It is the Pet Sounds of my generation. Thank whatever/whomever you believe in for Jay Bennett, kids. Seriously. There isn't a single weak song. It's quite the album, and if you don't like it then you probably don't need to bother with the band.

If you do, then follow it up with their best ALBUM--Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Follow that up with A Ghost Is Born before making your way to Being There and then the vastly inferior A.M.. Then get the bad taste out of your mouth with Kicking Television and you'll be good to G-O. Holla.

I guess I'm weird then because although I like Summerteeth, I doubt I would have purchased anything else by Wilco if I had heard it first. I find YHF and AGIB vastly more interesting.

I love Summerteeth, but I'd still suggest YHF to someone. Summerteeth would also be a fine choice though.

No votes for Being There? That's surprising...I've heard it's excellent.

I just listened to all of Summerteeth on Yahoo Music, and all I can say is "woah".

It's a totally exciting, fun album that even in its hour length, kept me interested.

Candyfloss and Shot In The Arm...

I think there's something wrong with this version though. It lists the hidden tracks as follows:

Untitled (23 seconds of slience)
Candyfloss
A Shot In The Arm (remix)

I thought it was supposed to be...

Untitled (23 seconds of slience)
Candyfloss
The Future Age (alternate)



Onto YHF...
