#493: Yankee Hotel Foxtrot by Wilco

1.06.2011


Yankee Hotel Foxtrot by Wilco (2002)

Favorite track(s): "Jesus, Etc." and "Heavy Metal Drummer" and "Poor Places"

Thoughts: It definitely grew on me as I listened...the first few tracks seem now to have been my least favorite on the album. These are some of the lyrics I've liked best in this list so far, and that will make me want to revisit these songs, I'm sure. I know most of my friends are big fans of Wilco and this album, so I was glad to give them a try but nervous I wouldn't 'get' their music, since I've never been drawn to it in the past. They're sort of like Radiohead in that way to me. But maybe going through this list will start a greater warming to both bands.
