Without reference to punctuation or spacing, I humbly present my listing:

 

Yankee Hotel Foxtrot 

Wilco (The Album) 

A Ghost is Born

The Whole Love

Summerteeth

Being There 

Sky Blue Sky 

Schmilco 

Star Wars

Well, that's disappointing and shockingly wrong. While I love the album as much as the next guy, there's just no way that YHF can be listed first. Frankly, it's impossible. Your list suggests a serious lack of familiarity with the history of Wilco studio albums.

 

Let's agree to agree that the following is correct:

 

AM

BT

ST

YHF

AGIB

SBS

WTA

TWL

SW

WS (if it arrives on time)

Are we not afraid of jinxing WS? Until it's in my hands, I can't in good conscience include WS in my evaluations. I still say:

 

AM

BT

ST

YHF

AGIB

SBS

WTA

TWL

SW

You know, we've had enough of flip-flopping in this country to last me a lifetime. Have some resolve, damn it. Stick to your principles. When you wake up tomorrow it better read like this:

 

AM

BT

ST

YHF

AGIB

SBS

WTA

TWL

SW

 

I only vaguely know who you are, but based on that list, I'd say you were a highy messed up freak. Your feelings on this are objectively wrong at this point.

 

Now that I've had ample time to really let Schmilco settle into its proper place on the timeline, I feel more confident in my current rankings:

 

AM

BT

ST

YHF

AGIB

SBS

WTA

TWL

SW

WS

^ My God. Did we not ALL have a reading comprehension class at some point in school?

 

I'm just going to say a couple of quick things here, because I'm too enraged to speak with any sense of decorum at this point. First, Wisconsin cheese has been scientifically proven to cause irreversible brain damage; secondly, Go Cubs Go.  :thumbup

 

Oh..and to reiterate for those of you scoring at home:

 

AM

BT

ST

YHF

AGIB

SBS

WTA

TWL

SW

WS 

 

THIS IS NOT UP FOR DEBATE.

It's tough to argue against your choices, but I'm going to go out on a limb by putting KT somewhere towards the middle of the ranking. I hope I'm not flamed for that, what with me being foreign and all and therefore perhaps with a different musical heritage and take on things.

KT does not belong anywhere on this list. 

 

And even though I've only heard a few songs, Ode to Joy belongs at the very bottom.
