Not going to include Star Wars, way too early for that, but I definitely like it more than AM and Wilco selftitle.

1. Summerteeth 
2. Being There
3. Mermaid Avenue 1 & 2 (kind of cheating to include both)
4. Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
 
(Can’t decide how to rank the next 3)

 

- Sky Blue Sky (a beautiful record that coulda been even more beautiful with One True Vine and without Shake it Off, Walken and the wonky part of Hate It Here)
 
- A Ghost Is Born (maybe a top 3 Wilco record, but the versions of some of the songs aren’t my personal favorite. Hummingbird is done creatively, but I love the more mysterious-sounding acoustic version. Same with Spiders, though I DO like the kraut-rock-like version on the record. Handshake Drugs, Theologians and The Late Greats…all songs I like live...for whatever reason, sound flat or uninspired on the record.)
 
- Star Wars (still warming up to it. Musically, very fresh and impressive. Only some lyrics grabbing me. Love the 34-minute length.)

Not really. Weren't all those songs recorded at the same time? it's essentially a double album they spread out over two releases. On that note, a compilation of songs recorded for but not included on YHF (side B on my maxell cassette copy of the album) would actually be "1b" if YHF is my "1a", if counted seperately.

Sorry, off topic:

Is anyone else seeing this as the most massive font on their screen?

I'm noticing that The Whole Love is ranking really low here.

 

I know I ranked it at the bottom (I really do think it's their weakest album) but perhaps its low ranking has something to to with to the relative contrast between it and Star Wars?
