news & reviews

  • about this album

    Daring in its own right, Wilco’s third and final album for Warner Bros. foreshadows the even more experimental work to come on the band’s Nonesuch debut, Yankee Foxtrot Hotel. As Rolling Stone put it, “Wilco use the studio like an instrument, unreeling mini-movies of the imagination, blending and then bending the sound of guitars, drums and a thrift-shop array of vintage keyboards.” Includes the album on 12" vinyl and CD; Nonesuch Store purchases also include free MP3 downloads of the album.
