Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (2002)

Thanks to Mewzique™ for this one, I decided to put up something that i've only just discovered myself.
This is a record with alot of critical acclaim so I felt somewhat obliged to give it a listen and I can see why people like it so much. Wilco's alt-rock sound seems to borrow much from the past and on listening to the atmospheric first track I was already to drawing comparisons to, long time favourites of mine, the Dandy Warhols. Songs like "Jesus etc" seem to show more pop leanings with great hooks and there are also folkier moments like "Radio Cure". I cant comment on this in comparison to their other records as I haven't heard them but I think this is well worth trying like I have done.
