Biography

After seven studio albums, various collaborations and countless days on the road over the past 15 years, Wilco tried something new before starting work on its eighth record, The Whole Love, due Sept. 27 on dBpm Records: The Chicago band took a vacation. Staying off stage for most of the latter half of 2010 was the longest break from touring that bandleader Jeff Tweedy has had in a career ... Read more in Amazon's Wilco Store

Format: Audio CD
There is a danger when you try to satisfy everyone that you satisfy no one. Jeff Tweedy is keenly aware of this since in recent years Wilco has tended to polarize music fans who love their experimental side as evidenced on their masterpiece "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" but are not overly keen on their gentle country rock side as evidenced by albums like "Sky blue sky". But in the world of Wilco the whole is the sum of the parts and in a remarkable career they have become the premier American band by refusing to be pigeonholed and being driven by a sense of sonic adventure. "The Whole Love" is their eighth full album and comes as a single album or a slightly longer special edition with 4 additional tracks. It essentially covers all Wilco bases with a mix of the experimental and traditional. This is most in evidence on the two best tracks which bookend the main album. First up is the powerful 7 minute plus opener "Art of the almost" made up of a wonderful cacophony of pulsing synths, propulsive beats and Nels Cline doing a great impression of Richie Blackmore. As a polar opposite the album concludes with the gorgeous twelve minute plus alt country acoustic epic "One Sunday Morning (Song For Jane Smiley's Boyfriend)" where not one second is wasted and which may be one of Tweedy's finest compositions ever. In between you get some of the best pop songs since Summerteeth and a fine balance between artsy, melodic and country. The single "I might" for example has a throbbing bass, a sub Doors style keyboard line and enough hooks to catch mackerel. Cline's injects the song with ragged guitar lines as Tweedy who is clearly enjoying himself intones that "It's all right/You won't set the kids on fire/But I might".Read more ›

Wilco have long been one of my favourite bands, and in my opinion The Whole Love is a seriously great addition to their catalogue. Others have already reviewed The Whole Love far more eloquently than I can, but I wanted to add that Tweedy's vocals really stand out for me on this CD. His voice seems to have more dimensions to it than I've known before, but still on occasions makes my heart ache with its quiet soulfulness. Wilco are the complete package - genius song-writing, all skilled musicians (but sensitive and selfless enough to know when to hold back), and one of the best live bands you will ever see.

Less experiemental than some earlier Wilco records Jeff Tweedy settles down to middle age with another career defining record. Wilco are the top American 'a' band of the last 15 years each record has been bold and different. Perhaps not as challenging as YHF but this will sit comfortably with their other records - Wilco can do no wrong - great band and Jeff Tweedy is amongst the best songwriters of the last 20 years.

Review for 2 cd version.

Not as good as YHF or Summerteeth but still some finely crafted songs from one of the best live bands I've ever seen

This is a great CD that grows and grows on me. I knew nothing of Wilco until I was transfixed by a chance hearing of Black Moon and decided to follow up on the premise that anyone who could produce that quality of music would be worth a longer listen. It sure was the right decision as its the whole package of mind grabbing sounds, deep lyrics and a voice to remember. I hear a whisper of John Lennon.

Another year and another great album by Wilco. On first listening I found The Whole Love a little flat and uninteresting, making me think that perhaps Jeff Tweedy was trying too many different styles. However, on repeated listenings the album grew on me and I realised that he had succeeded once again. I doubt if there's a better rock band around today.

I was a bit dubious about this record to start with, but it is certainly a grower. After you get past the incongrous electronica of the Art of Almost, you are in the familiar Wilco territory of guitar based pop with an avantgarde, punky edge. Interspersed with beautifully constructed acoustic tunes such as Black Moon and standout track One Sunday Morning. Bonus cd cover I Love My Label and title track Whole Love provide the catchy pop sensibility that is missing elsewhere. After watching them give an oustanding performance at the Manchester Academy recently, I can only recommend this record and Wilco to fellow Amazon customers.

Up-to-standard Wilco album. Which means very good. More varied than most but none the worse for that. Best tracks lay in the latter half.
