Love it. Goddamn, guys.

Also, the descending synth line around 4:02 sounds like something out of a Future Islands song. This is a good thing.

That solo in Rattlesnake though.

I love it. I love it in an immediate way that didn’t apply to “Rent I Pay” (though I love that now). This is like “You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb” insta-love.

Now that you say it: Yup. This. Can’t escape that song.

This album was my introduction to Wilco, and will probably always be my favorite of theirs. That incredible curve ball in At Least That’s What You Said, when Tweedy blows the song up and plays what is arguably one of the greatest guitar solos of recent memory — that moment blew my fifteen-year-old brain into pieces. And then every song on the album did similarly amazing things. Between “ALTWYS” and “Theologians”, there are two of my favorite songs, ever.

The album’s long, and it’s dense, but it’s beautiful and wounded. I love it. Top-five album for me.

Also, I am so glad you wrote this sentence, Chris, because I could not agree more about that melody: “The glimmering arpeggios of “Muzzle Of Bees” build to a climax that weaves abrasive guitar skree into the prettiest passage of music Wilco ever recorded.” Gorgeous song.

Definitely Seasons or Alexandra.

But…yeah. Seasons (Waiting on You). This might be my song of the year.

“Well, they must’ve gotten some good offers.”

Yeah, try 500K each. Crazy. http://www.gigwise.com/news/90662/the-libertines-fee-for-hyde-park-gig-revealed-they-wont-go-short

“There is, however, an exception.”

Same with the brief, passing mention of Ambulance Ltd. What a wonderful band, gone too soon. “Country Gentlemen” is a perfect song.

Hot Fuss has aged surprisingly well, I think. It’s not particularly deep, but that’s what makes it so damn listenable.

Hey, here’s that ~minute-shorter version I was asking for! Thanks, Dan.
