DescriptionExcerpt

On its Nonesuch debut, Wilco delivers a thrillingly experimental work that scored a perfect 10 on Pitchfork, which hailed the album as “complex and dangerously catchy, lyrically sophisticated and provocative, noisy and somehow serene … simply a masterpiece.” As the New York Times put it, Jeff Tweedy’s songs "unfold in richly enigmatic arrangements.”
