Wilco (the post)
So I'm finally getting around to talking about this one. It only came out two months ago, and I bought it that same day. I just didn't really get into until this weekend, which was odd, since this has to be the most accessible (to overuse a phrase) Wilco has yet produced.
I'm guessing that I was expecting something similar to Sky Blue Sky or A Ghost is Born. While there's a bit of those albums here, it's clearer, more concise, and more joyful than those two albums. There's still great guitar work from virtuoso Nels Cline, if you're wondering.
As I said, this album finally clicked with me, and I'm glad it has. It's great stuff, and I'd recommend checking it out soon if you haven't already.
