Wilco: The Whole Love (dBpm)

Bud Scoppa, Rock's Backpages, December 2011

WILCO FANS ARE AS polarized as the US congress. Some revel in the band's eardrum-pulverizing forays into the sonic unknown, introduced on 2000's art-damaged Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and refined on 2004's brutally beautiful A Ghost Is Born. The rest are entranced by what Jeff Tweedy describes as "cinematic-sounding country know, folk music," represented by 2007's glorious Sky Blue Sky and '09's intermittently captivating Wilco (The Album).
