Forget about all the things people expect Wilco to be. They’ve produced an amazing body of work with very few exceptions—maybe Sky Blue Sky was one of them—but even that was a pretty enjoyable listen. From album to album, they’ve been more country, more rootsy, more experimental (cheers to Jay Bennett), more whatever. I think there’s no masterplan here, they just make the kind of music that speaks to them. And Wilco (The Album) finds them doing it really well—a world-weary, well-oiled machine, that hasn’t lost its sense of humor.
