You knocked it out of the park with this summation. You honestly said it all, and said it all quite well. Convoluted? Maybe. Kick-ass? Absolutely. Nice work mate.

Love this album, one of my favorites also. Much better than Wilco (The Album) and maybe their best since Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Though they will never top that obviously

Can't wait to dive into this one. Never got into The Album, but i actually really enjoyed SBS - especially the opening track. Can never have enough Tweedy.

Just recently copped Golden Smog's Down By The Mainstream on double vinyl - so fucking good.

If by "absolutely dreadful" you mean "positively excellent," then yes, I know what you mean.

Actually, most places haven't given it more than a 7/10. It's better than the last two, maybe, but it pales in comparison to their older stuff.

7/10 is a great review.

every wilco album gets better with years, so you couldn't possibly say "it pales in comparison" yet.

i also don't buy that it's better than the last two either. to me, each of their releases stands completely on its own. everyone hates on sky blue sky and the album because there's no weird noises on them, big deal. the songs are still so well written it blows my mind.

to each his own, but I think in 20 years, everyone's going to have a much different opinion on where Jeff Tweedy stands as one of the all time great rock songwriters.
