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

This is where the Wilco story begins, and what a fine introduction to this superb band this is. This album seems to take over from where Jeff Tweedys songwriting from his later Uncle Tupelo days left off. It seems a natural progression, exploring similar themes with a countryish, almost slightly folky edge all the way throught.
Many Wilco listeners may have boarded the train when it stopped at Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, it may be difficult to jump straight from that to this and expect a seamless link, they are very different on the surface. However, if you start here and work through the albums towards YHF you will see what is happening and this album will begin to shine.
I still believe that this is Wilco's weakest album, but weak on Wilcos terms is Geoff Capes on others bands terms.
My only criticism of AM is that it tails of a bit in the middle.
The quality of the first few songs is very high.
If you have never listened to Wilco before I would recommend AM as the perfect start point, if you take this advice, then enjoy the journey it is one of the most satisfying i have ever been on.

Format: Audio CD
I got A.M. after Summerteeth and Being there, hoping for more of the same. It was, only different. A.M. is more youthful and less affected than the later albums with a style which can be seen as a more obvious transition from country/alt country than their current mainstram approach.
Slightly more up-beat than the later albums, the themes here are a mix of traditional country ( bedroom ballads, country good-times, over-honest relationship analysis), but without the cliche's and a youthful, driving attitude to everything which makes this a great car stereo album.
The quality of the songwriting is as good as anything Jeff Tweedy done before or since, but this time the meloncholy is kept in check - just below the surface - and that makes this the definitive alternative country album.
Definitely worth investigation

Format: Audio CD
Amazon's product description that 'Jay Farrar's Son Volt took the relatively arty road while Jeff Tweedy upped the rock & roll grit quotient with Wilco' seems a little topsy-turvey with hindsight. But this is indeed a straight ahead country rock album, and possibly the most conventional Wilco have made.

Tweedy has also since described the album as 'treading water', and it does feel slightly like a placeholder while the band decided which way to go post-Uncle Tupelo, (the beguiling creative pathways of Being There, Summerteeth, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and A Ghost is Born were soon to come).

However, all of this doesn't mean it's not great, or at least very good.

The first four songs are a pure, joyous adrenaline rush of pure rock n roll, equal parts Neil Young and Stones. The rest of the album is made up of the kind of gorgeous porch ballads they returned to with Sky Blue Sky.

The songs are a stripped down showcase of Tweedy's consumate songcraft, and he even lets John Stirratt have a crack of the whip with his song 'It's Just That Simple', signposting a soft spot for the lad that's kept him Wilco's sole other remaining original member.

Born out of the ashes of alt-country band Uncle Tupelo by departure of co-singer-songwriter Jay Farrar left Jeff Tweedy to continue mining the same seam. Abandoning the name Uncle Tupelo to use a new moniker was a brave step at the time but with the benefit of hindsight was the right decision because although A.M. is fairly derivative of the Americano music peddled by Uncle Tupelo they had pretty soon diversified and exhibited many more aspects to the band.

This album starts off by showing anyone writing them off was way off the mark with the fantastic `I Must be High'. The pace is then stepped up for the rocky country of `Casino Queen' and `Box Full of Letters'. The pace then settles down and although the arrangements do not really step out of the Uncle Tupelo template there are some very strong songs pointing out that Jeff tweedy was still a writing force without his previous partner. An accomplished debut album and perfect statement of intent.

A classic country rock album. Beautifully paced and played from start to finish, with just hints of the experimental styles to follow.
