Genre(s): Indie, Rock, Alt-Country
If there could be such a thing as an American Radiohead, it would have to be Wilco. Jeff Tweedy has propelled his combo far beyond any vestiges of alt-country, and the band increasingly resembles a sonic laboratory constructed from fractious aspects of Tweedy's personality. Appropriately for a band on Nonesuch, the Wilco displayed here seems as concerned with experiments in sound and unsettling juxtapositions of effects as with four-square rock songwriting.
