That actually kind of worries me. I bought YHF and AGIB together, then several weeks later bought Summerteeth. Love 'em all, but like YHF and AGIB better than Summerteeth. If, as is the general consensus, their work has gotten better with each release (or at least their later few albums are better than their first few), I fear I may be disappointed by their older work.

I've done that with other artists -- gotten into them several albums into their career and then when I buy the back catalog I'm not so impressed with their early work. And it's not as if it's bad, often it's quite good, it's just that it isn't as good as I know they can be. Does that make any sense?

Probably won't stop me from buying the albums though....
As with most great bands, each album has a different sound. And A.M. reminds me a lot of Tweedy's work with Uncle Tupelo. Uncle Tupelo is great stuff though, and it's interesting to keep going through Jeff's catalog to see how he's progressed musically and lyrically. But back to A.M., I dare you to NOT be instantly hooked on "Casino Queen" and "Box Full of Letters". So damn catchy...

Well in about three or four weeks my "to buy" list is gonna get a workout, so I'll let you know.

I don't know if you guys have seen this, but over at www.wilcoworld.net they have a streaming live version of "Airline To Heaven" recorded for the CD/DVD, the tentative release date being November 1. This live version is incredible and blows the album version out of the water, just with the ending alone

Fine. Just go ahead and start a Wilco thread while I'm out of town.

The live disc news is very exciting.

Tweedy gets my vote everytime for best songwriter. I sat down once and read the YHF lyric booklet all the way through and was just blown away by the poetry. Some critics say he's obscure but I don't get that at all. When I hear his words I get clear images--even if they're not what he meant, they mean something to me.

they dont play that all the time, but it's probably my favourite wilco song of all time.

Excellent, EP. Everytime I see your avatar it gives me a warm, happy feeling even though the picture is neither. Reminds me of something Tweedy said at a show once: "We play sad songs but we aim to make you happy." They succeed.

I saw them at ACL Sunday for the first time.

Needless to say I couldn't help but drool all over myself when they played Muzzle Of Bees and Spiders
