  1. One Wing. That song still does absolutely nothing for me, musically and lyrically.
  2. The first time I heard the line "And I told you in my arms I hate you less than the rest," I knew immediately that it was a classic Jeff Tweedy lyric. Over-the-top comedic genius, very Morrissey-like. Great lines like that seemed to be in short supply on The Whole Love IMO.
  3. Is it true that before the recording of this album Jeff was given guitar lessons by Richard Lloyd? I thought that I read that somewhere but I've never heard that reinforced by online fans or other articles. His guitar work on the album is killer and speaks to me much more than most of Nels's Post-Sky Blue Sky contributions. Anyway, I love this album to just because it's so improvised yet it keeps focus throughout due to Jim O'Rourke's contribution. I thought that The Whole Love was lacking as far as a unifying musical theme is concerned, yet it has it's own mixtape kind of charm that I love

  5. MMJ's Circuital album cover is pretty awful. Also, for any Gomez fans out there, ALL of their album covers after Bring it On & Liquid Skin are pretty bad (despite them being a really great band up until recent years).

  7. Yep, and a damn good one. My song adding and omitting skills are unmatched.
  8. Maybe you're listening to a different "Dawned on Me" than me lol. For some reason the song just doesn't have any impact for me until the very end when the backing vocals show up and the guitar is more prominent. The bridge also seems a little premature (I could say the same for "Whole Love"). I feel like "Open Mind" is too simple guitar-wise for Sky Blue Sky and reminds me more of one of the lesser WTA songs. I love the lyrics though, I just wish they did more with it sonically and maybe extended it more. (In fact, there are a handful of songs on this album that I wish they made a little b
  9. I hate to do this, but I've come to the conclusion that The Whole Love would be a lot better (at least for me) if the main album tracklisting was adjusted. 1. Art of Almost 2. I Might 3. Sunloathe 4. Speak into the Rose (It's an instrumental but it kicks Spiders Kidsmoke's ass and would add some meatiness to the album) 5. Black Moon (Alt. Version) (The addition of strings just reminds me too much of Nick Drake and not very much like Wilco) 6. Message From Mid-Bar 7. Born Alone (The transition between Mid-Bar and this is great) 8. Capitol City 9. Rising Red Lung 10. Whole Love 11. One Sunday
  10. I don't consider them a jam band at all. For Wilco to "jam" is to make an exception to the rule, the rule being "write intricate and concise pop songs." My Morning Jacket is much more of a jam band than Wilco and even their music is more poppy than it is jammy. Plus "jam band" implies a backseat role of the songwriter and dominance of extended guitar freakouts. In Wilco's case, Jeff Tweedy's singing and songwriting create the most appeal. While there are plenty of guitar freakouts in Wilco songs (especially in a live setting) they are always there to complement the songs and never to distrac
  11. All I can say is that this is the first time that I've heard a brand new Wilco album and been immediately sucked in. I wasn't a Wilco fanatic until A Ghost Is Born was already a year or so old, so Sky Blue Sky was my first new album stream (and that one had to seriously grow on me). Wilco (The Album) has felt pretty inessential to me since the day it came out, but this one is different. I think TWL is everything WTA should have been. While the majority of these songs haven't blown my mind, both the opening and closing songs are absolutely killer. One Sunday Morning in particular I think is o
