Album: Wilco, Wilco (The Album), (Nonesuch)

Click to follow

Wilco (The Album) opens with "Wilco (The Song)". So what, then, is Wilco (The Verdict)?

Parentheses aside, album number seven finds Jeff Tweedy in mix-and-match mood, with both his and his fans' dark ("Bull Black Nova") and light ("You & I") sides duly catered to. Wilco being Wilco, the layers of sound subtly reveal themselves, with Nels Cline's Television-ish guitar of particular note. Verdict? Still, Radiohead notwithstanding, the best rock band on the planet. What you waiting for?
