  • Album Review: Wilco - Wilco (The Album) Wilco has been fun to watch since the 1995 debut album, "AM," and has a pretty good track record to date. I don't think they've ever made a bad album, but since the beginning I've expected the unexpected.
  • Album Review: Wilco - The Whole Love I can give no higher compliment to "The Whole Love" than to favorably compare it to "Summerteeth," and while it may not reach the peaks of the Wilco catalog, it is clearly their best record in nearly a decade.
