4.0 out of 5 stars Something old, something new, something borrowed, 9 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Whole Love (Audio CD)
A new album from Wilco that more or less does it all. Has enough of the past to know it is still got a great writer in Jeff Tweedy in all these songs, but always willing to take a different route, as heard on the opening track 'Art of Almost'. Third studio album with this line-up, and the rhythm section is now locked in, the lead guitars add shades of sonic textures, and the keyboards support rather than dominate in the pro-tools era of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Notably that more than half of the album is getting played live on their current European tour, mostly the up tempo songs off here, with the epic closing song 'One Sunday Morning' is a 12 minute acoustic number with Jeff's twisted lyrics a standard too.

Only down side - ordered 2 disc version of this from Amazon, and it never arrived and wasnt explained why... oh well I ordered the single disc and its definitely one of Wilco's better albums.

oh and the borrowed bit... I Might samples TV Eye by the Stooges
