    A Cherry Ghost
  1. I enjoy Cruel Country well enough, but it is not scratching my itch for a diverse, propulsive record that clearly utilizes the skills of all six guys. I've been wanting another Whole Love-type record since Schmilco hit. I want some up-tempo tracks and a little sprinkled-in weirdness; this one, as good as it is, continues the tempos and musicality of the Warm/Love is the King series. It's good, it's my favorite band, I'll like it, but I still want that other one.
  2. from the stream, I was rooting for Monday with horns instead of I Got You. But oh well. YHF sounded great. I wish they'd done the second set first and ended on Reservations.
  3. loved that streaming site in its day.
  4. they sounded incredible. love the set they're sticking to for the most part, what it's lacking in rarities, it's making up for in great songs played with aplomb.
  5. There was a photo of them all Zooming recently; maybe the parts had already been laid down and Jeff just finished it. Still, my bet is also on the Tweedy family record. But I'm hoping for this Wilco thing sooner rather than later.
  6. I'd be happy with that, or with an announcement of the "rockier" Wilco record that they had the songs for around the time of Ode to Joy. Jeff did say he'd finished something, and that it was "probably a record."
  7. Which of these would be *the one* if I was going to buy one?
  8. Jeff mentioned that they've played in 8 degree temps before and that we had "a long way to go" before becoming their coldest show. Pat and Mikael seemed to dress for the weather, the rest of them dressed as usual.
  9. Hell of a show in Charlottesville last night. Jeff and the band appeared to be in good spirits, and my wife and I splurged on nice enough seats that we couldn't tell if the Pavilion lawn (often a chatty, distracting mess in the best of circumstances) was behaving. It's rewarding, having invested this much time and emotion in a band through the years, to see that they're still clearly enjoying both each other and the performances they're putting on. The Ode to Joy songs took on additional life (and additional band contributions) and the old stuff has been truly mastered at this point, to the ex
  10. Perhaps my comment was too brief, and I erred by mentioning Wheel specifically. What I'm mostly after is what's been repeatedly requested here: more sonic variety - styles, tempos, etc - over the course of one record. I really enjoyed Whole Love for that reason, and it's why both of the Wilco records that followed, while enjoyable, have felt slight to me. Also saw someone mention that maybe they just want Jeff on electric guitar, and honestly, that might do it too. I really enjoy his electric playing.
  11. I like the song, but I hope there's more stylistic variance to this record -- a la The Whole Love -- than there has been on the last couple of Wilco records and Warm/Warmer. I like the "big folk" thing, but I want the occasional curveball and revved up I'm a Wheel-esque rocker thrown at me.
