Wilco: "A Ghost Is Born" [cover]

Uncut magazine celebrates its 150th issue in November with a list of the 150 Greatest Albums of the 21st Century (so far). On the list are several Nonesuch releases, including three Wilco records from the decade—2004's A Ghost Is Born at No. 3, 2002's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, and 2007's Sky Blue Sky. (Wilco's latest album, Wilco (the album), recently joined Oh My God, Charlie Darwin, from label mates The Low Anthem, on the list of nominees for the 2009 Uncut Music Award.)

Just next to A Ghost Is Born on the list of the decade's best is Brian Wilson's SMiLE (2004), in at No. 4. Chávez Ravine, the second album in Ry Cooder's California trilogy, from 2005, comes in at No. 48. Emmylou Harris's Nonesuch debut, Red Dirt Girl, released in 2000, makes the list as well, as does Scritti Politti's Nonesuch album from 2006, White Bread, Black Beer.
