Austin City Limits - Wilco
Posted on 08 Apr 2010
I was watching Austin City Limits the other night and Wilco was on, preforming songs from their 2007 album, Sky Blue Sky. It was a great performance. I have had friends that swore by their music for years, but I had never felt any kind of draw to them - that is until late last year when I purchased their most recent album Wilco, Self-titled. Its a decent album. There are some really good songs on it - but still - I didnt understand what the big deal was about this band? The performance I watched of them on ACL changed all that.
Immediately after finishing the ACL episode I ran to my computer, pulled up iTunes and downloaded Sky Blue Sky. Its been a great album. Its rare for me to come across an album that I can enjoy beginning to end - this is one of those albums. The album starts out with a mellow, mainly acoustic song, called Either Way, and takes listeners on a roller coaster ride filled with melodic solos, harmonized vocals, catchy off-beat rhythms, and beautiful, heart-felt lyrics. Its a wonderful listen.
What are some of your favorite Wilco songs? Albums?
Why do you enjoy them?
