I love this album. It is, with the possible exception of AM, their most consistent LP - not a single duff track. It is filled with British Invasion era pop-sensibilities that they've struggled to find (consistently) with subsequent releases.

As stated above, there genuinely isn't any filler present on this disc, which makes it very difficult to single out standout tracks but here goes... Nothingsevergonnastandinmyway, Can't stand it (in spite of it's unbelievable use in a Ford commercial), She's a jar, and (of course) Shot in the arm - the latter still powerfully resonant twelve years later.

If you're starting your Wilco collection buy this album first, then the sublime Being There and then AM; everything else by Wilco is optional. Highly recommended.

All of the songs on this album are OK, but none of them stands out. I struggle to get through this album without changing CDs.

Arguably the band's best album, this third Wilco album was released in 1999, in between the sprawling Being There and the lauded Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Since the latter's success, Summerteeth has been somewhat eclipsed.

It deserves better. Having apparently starting listening to the Beach Boys, Jeff Tweedy wrote fifteen borderline-pastiches, featuring summery synth lines, blissed-out vocal harmonies and only a smidgeon of the band's trademark experimentation. 'She's A Jar,' a fan favourite to this day, is one of their best ballads; 'Via Chicago' is almost as tender but for the occasional blasts of noise that reside within; 'I Can't Stand It' is one of the best album openers I've ever heard, but against the rest of Wilco's openers - 'Misunderstood,' 'I Am Trying To Break Your Heart,' 'At Least that's What You Said,' - it has stiff competition.

This more straight, poppier album is often ignored or bashed when compared to Wilco's more experimental works; this is a mistake. This album is just as essential as the rest of the band's albums.

Wilco's third album almost completely lost that country twang making them sound (at the time) like a very experimental rock group. The album's complicated arrangements include some bizarrely cheesy keyboard sounds and "Leaving Chicago" includes a screaming guitar solo that initially sounds totally ham fisted but the more you listen to the words of the song it does kind of fit. "She's a Jar" is like a quirky love song until the killer last line "You know she begs me not to hit her" turns it on its head. There are some beautiful melodies here and the depth and variety of the song writing is particularly impressive.

Wilco's previous double album 'Being There', with its magpie-like borrowing from country, rock and roll and the blues, topped many critical polls and won the group a new wave of followers. Their response to this increase in popularity was to push the template out further with Summerteeth. Less country influenced, less bluesy, and more of a "conventional" rock album, Summerteeth is by turns uplifting, moving and inspiring. Replacing the acoustic guitars with effects pedals and keyboard effects, this album's musical palette is broad and at times experimental. That said, the sonic trickery never once interferes with the bedrock of quality songwriting that holds this wonderful collection together.
Jeff Tweedy's voice has never sounded more sincere or close to breaking, while the songwriting partnership of Tweedy and Jay Bennett seems to conjure songs that perfectly suit both the band's musical abilities and their lyrical preoccupations. There is nothing approaching a bad track on the album, and even the unlisted bonus tracks (Candyfloss, and an alternate take of Shot In The Arm) are of the highest quality. If 'Being There' displayed Wilco's affection for all things past, Summerteeth shows that they have the ability to record timeless rock music that owes nothing to anybody but themselves.
