    Wilco's "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot," Nonesuch Debut Album, Released 15 Years Ago

    Wilco made its Nonesuch Records debut with the release of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot fifteen years ago today, on April 23, 2002. On the album, Wilco delivers a thrillingly experimental work that scored a perfect 10 on Pitchfork, which hailed the album "simply a masterpiece." The New York Times said that "songs about love, America, apocalypse, and self-invention unfold in richly enigmatic arrangements" on the album. Rolling Stone named Yankee Hotel Foxtrot the No. 3 Album of the 2000s.

    Wilco went on to release three more studio albums on Nonesuch—A Ghost Is Born, Sky Blue Sky, and Wilco (the album)—as well as Kicking Television: Live in Chicago on CD and in an LP box set; the Ashes of American Flags concert DVD; vinyl editions of the band's first three album, A.M., Being There, and Summerteeth; three volumes of Mermaid Avenue, the collaboration with Billy Bragg, on vinyl and in a CD box set; the essential tracks compilation What's Your 20? and the rare-tracks collection Alpha Mike Foxtrot.
