    I just saw Wilco do the best set I'll ever see them play. Solid Sound Festival night 1, Being There in full...followed by a surprise encore of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot in full. It was absolutely incredible. Say You Miss Me was my Wilco bucket list song to end all bucket list songs.

    Holy shit they played both? That's dedication.

    Eaux Claires was great, got to the front row, solid as ever. The Glenn Kotche and S. Carey side project that played was also really good.

    there's a thousand half-loves well worth leaving

    I just bought Sky Blue Sky on CD for 4.95 at a local music store. I've heard it once or twice before, but this is my first serious listen and it's blowing my mind! I'm going to have to go back and try to find more... How is the self titled?

    Self titled is their worst album in my opinion.

    S/T is probably my least favorite in their catalog

    They don't have a bad album, lot of great songs on self titled.


    Also I think Whole Love is underrated, album and song

    I like s/t better than Sky Blue Sky fwiw. It's more of a throwaway album in their catalog but it sounds more like their great stuff (imo). Also there are definitely a few excellent songs.

    The Whole Love is awesome. By far my favorite record after their peak ended.

    Agree Whole Love is way underrated. The opener kills.

    AM

    S/t
    Star Wars

    Sky Blue Sky

    Tier 1 is perfect. Three all time great records. I would put YHF in the top 5 albums of the 2000s by anyone, sometimes it's my favorite album of all time. Tier 2 is pretty excellent for a tier 2, just not as life- affirmingly so. S/t and Star Wars have a lot of crap but some excellent songs - Solitaire alone keeps s/t from the bottom (the album is easily worth $4). I really hate the direction they took on SBS but I get why people like it. Schmilco I listened to like 3 times, it's boring af.

    Probably a tier 2 record if you took the 10 best songs from Star Wars, Schmilco, and Sukierae and combined them into one not half assed record.

    I was afraid we were going to get into ranking, fun thread while it lasted guys

    Tier 1: YHF, Sky Blue Sky, Summerteeth, Being There, Whole Love
    Tier 2: Ghost is Born, Star Wars, Schmilco, Self-Titled, AM

    AM is the only one I don't listen to a lot, two newest seem still too fresh to really rate with everything else, not a bad album they got tho

    I definitely would've preferred that they'd continued down the experimental path after Ghost, but Sky Blue Sky does what it does very well.

    The self-titled has some good songs, but it's disjointed and too much of a retread for me to put it anywhere but last. It's their only album lacking a strong identity.

    And I like A.M. a lot--just not as much as the ones I put above it.

    This thread has reminded me how much I like Wilco. I think Sky Blue Sky is my favorite even though I know it's not as exciting as some of their other albums. It's just so damn good. I haven't listened to The Whole Love or Wilco (The Album) for some reason, but I've really enjoyed Star Wars and Schmilco, so I think I'm gonna have to go back and give those two a listen.

    Given my diatribe about disliking the Eagles and Jackson Browne and that chilled-out 70s LA sound in the JI thread last week, I am fully prepared to be calling a flaming fucking hypocrite for liking Sky Blue Sky.

    Sorry. Just did it for the Wood&Wire who's new to them and doesn't know which of their records to pick up.

    The correct answer is always just all of them

    I think that element of Sky Blue Sky is pretty overstated, honestly. I hear a bit of that but in general I think it's way more emotionally blunt and forward-thinking sonically than the Eagles ever dreamed of being.
