27-WILCO-Wilco (The Album)

Already in their seventh studio album, US critics’ favorite band Wilco, heirs of the role R.E:M. used to play, offered us their most accessible and relaxed work since “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot”. Jeff Tweedy seemed to have rediscovered the fun of making music, after years fighting against depression influenced the tone of his recordings. “Wilco (The Album)” once again set the standard of alternative Americana sky high, with its usual blend of tradition and innovation. Although this time the traditional element prevailed through its warmth, almost familiar, melodies; shaping up a record enjoyable from beginning to end.

Released on Nonesuch. Available to listen in Spotify.
