Wilco (The Album)
Released: Jun 2009
Wilco kicks off with "Wilco," clueing you in that this is another loose and playful outing. That doesn't mean that Jeff Tweedy is no longer taking songwriting seriously -- "One Wing," "You & I" (a duet with Feist) and "You Never Know" are as toe-tappingly strong and personal as ever. The album may miss the far-reaching guitar work of Sky Blue Sky, but the band still rocks and the playing-live vibe is enhanced by some fine studio production. For those who have missed Tweedy's ballad heartbreakers, go directly to "Solitaire," "Country Disappeared" or "Everlasting Everything."
